Gremlins 2: The New Batch Finally Gets the Blu-ray Treatment

Gremlins 2: The New Batch is an interesting sequel. While not as great as the first film, it's an over-the-top looney bin of a flick that has become a classic in its own right. Thankfully, we'll be able to set it right next to the original on our shelves come this May.

That's right, kids! Even The Hulkster won't be able to save you once this sinister sequel hits stores on May 8th, 2012. Special features and official artwork are all forthcoming. Stay tuned.

In this follow-up feature to the cult hit Gremlins, Billy Peltzer and Kate Beringer move to New York City and meet up with their Mogwai friend, Gizmo, when a series of accidents creates a new generation of diverse gremlins. Billy, Kate, and Gizmo must once again use all their experience to prevent another catastrophe!

Land of the Dead is the Least interesting LifeMi? its got a wonderful Social Commentary to it that (thanks for pointing this out kasch) holds better right now then it did back in 05, I would go so far as to say it has a stronger social Commentary then the ones in Dawn and Day...yeah I commited Horror movie Blasphemy with that statement and I stand by it

James, I'm not saying Land isn't relevant; I'm merely talking about film quality and for me, this one is the least memorable. Diary is much worse, but I find Diary fascinating and unique despite being a failure. Land is forgettable for me. I've seen Land and Diary the same number of times but whereas I clearly remember the events in Diary, I struggle to remember exact details in Land. What can I say, I guess I'm just polar opposite to you and Kasch.

Fright Night 2 & Land of the Dead were decent; nothing special, though I'd love to have Fright Night Part 2 on DVD. On the subject of the most underrated horror sequels, I'd give the nod to Psycho II. A great film that's almost good as the original.

Land of the Dead is actually better and more relevant now than it was ten years ago. Just think about it: It's Zombie Occupy Wall Street!

Relevance doesn't translate into quality; Land of the Dead was merely adequate. I'd go as far as to say Land of The Dead is the least interesting of Romero's dead films. Not the worst (that honor goes to Diary), but it's far and away the least memorable film.

Yes, I personally prefer GREMLINS 2 over the first one myself.

Gremlins 2 might just be the most underrated sequel of all time. Every frame is brilliant. My personal favorite Dante flick!

I agree, Andrew. It really is a great flick. I especially dig Christopher Lee's hilarious deadpan performance.

Gremlins 2 is great fun, but it's nowhere near the original.
