Critic Reviews of "Gremlins"TIME MagazineDecember 06, 2013
A wildly original roller-coaster ride of hilarious mischief.VarietyNovember 27, 2007
The humans are little more than dress-extras for the mechanics.Chicago ReaderNovember 27, 2007
What's confusing yet ultimately illuminating is the way his gremlins function as a free-floating metaphor, suggesting at separate junctures everything from teenagers to blacks to various Freudian suppressions.Chicago ReaderNovember 27, 2007
Dante is perhaps the first filmmaker since Frank Tashlin to base his style on the formal free-for-all of animated cartoons; he is also utterly heartless.Time OutJune 24, 2006
Dante gleefully sinks his teeth into the kind of fluffy, sugary, sickly small town fantasy beloved of his pal and sometime producer Spielberg.Cinemaphile.orgDecember 07, 2014

Think of A Christmas Carol visited by The Birds. Think of The Muppet Movie run amok. Imagine a berserk film editor splicing It's a Wonderful Life to Invasion of the Body Snatchers, with quoting from Snow White and a nod to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.Observer (UK)December 09, 2012
This postmodern, endlessly referential, utterly ruthless film is an ingenious, delightfully scary fairytale horror flick ...
