Don’t look in the microwave: DARK DISCUSSIONS does GREMLINS!

Epitome of Cute Gizmo Gremlins

Who doesn’t love the terminally cute Gizmo?

I got the chance to discuss one of everybody’s favorite movies—1984’s Gremlins—on Episode 120 of Dark Discussions! Foreign cars, puppetry vs. CGI, maxi-cassettes and more…if you were a child of the 80s (and even if you weren’t and are curious), you can take a trip down memory lane here: or play it right from this page here – just click and go: 

To top it off, co-host Unnatural Selections named the Gremlins episode as one of his five favorites for 2013 (he also noted the other episode on which I was privileged to guest host with my husband Nathan, The Conjuring)! On a side note, one of my favorite episodes on his list is The Exorcist. Links to each of his five are in the article, so give a listen or two. You can read the article here:
