We’re positive that many of you made a sigh of relief when the reboot of Gremlins ceased to exist.

Obviously, the film was never going to soar to the heights of Joe Dante’s cult classic, but it would have been interesting to see Gremlins brought to the screens in a brand new way, especially for audiences who haven’t seen the original – if they even exist! Alas, we’ll just have to stick to the original series, and that’s definitely not a bad thing.
