In Honor of Evil Dead - The Top Five Heinous Household Horrors
Microwave Oven-Gremlins
Joe Dante’s holiday-themed romp was memorable for so many reasons: the cute and cuddly Mogwai, Gizmo; the sinister and scaly Stripe, who was as devious as he was ugly; and the humor and F/X that are laced throughout this horror-comedy film. However, one of the most memorable scenes in the movie was (no, not the flasher gremlin or the movie theater sing-along…although both were great) in the kitchen of the Peltzer home. Everyone who’s ever seen Gremlins remembers Mrs. Peltzer spritzing one of the green meanies in the face with an aerosol spray can and then trapping it in the microwave oven and firing that baby up. And quick as a flash, bam! Gremlin flambé! Gremlin guts all over the inside of the microwave. I wonder if ol’ Rand Peltzer had an invention to clean that up.
