ABOUT THE FILM
Miniature green monsters tear through the small town of Kingston Falls. Hijinks ensue as a mild-mannered bank teller releases these hideous loonies after violating two of three simple rules: No water (violated), no food after midnight (violated) and no bright light. The next time your washing machine blows up or the TV goes on the fritz, turn the lights on and look under the beds…there just might be a gremlin in your house.
