Here’s some news that may reassure those Gremlins fans who are a bit worried about what Gremlins 3 could be like in today’s CG-drenched age. Chris Columbus spoke with /Film about how he wants to make the sequel:

“It is as twisted and dark as anything, so we’ll see. It’s always a budgetary conversation when we’re going to shoot it. I wanted to go back to the really twisted sensibility of the first movie. I found that was a very easy place for me to fall back into and start writing again so hopefully we’ll see that movie soon”.

And even more promisingly:

“CGI will enable us to remove wires and make the puppeteers lives a little easier. It was brutal. It was like a marathon every night for those guys. In the bar scene alone there were 18 or 20 people behind the bar. No one had any space to move. It was just hellish for those guys so CGI will simplify that a little bit but it’s all puppets”.

Well that’s taken care of my major worry for the film….well, as long as the studio execs don’t insist on doing them all with CGI instead as that’s what the kids are used to.  /Film finished by raising the point that while Gizmo is cute and adorable, isn’t he the center of all the horror?  Wouldn’t the world be safer if we got rid of him? Columbus replied:

“Very good observation. That comes up in the movie, certainly.”

Could we be looking forward to a gruesome death for Gizmo too?

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
