I liked the Gamer section. Made it standout more from typical movie reviews.

This movie sounds VERY similar to an manga I read a while ago. Pet Shop of Horrors had a weird shop in Chinatown, strange pets, the 3 rules, and terrible things happening when the owner broke the rules (and the shop wasn't responsible).

Is there any intentional connection? Although I'm thinking the 1984 date puts the movie earlier.

puts Pet Shop of Horrors as printed in 1995, which means it would definitely have been inspired by the movie, and not the other way around.

Ah, a fondly remembered film from my childhood.

I wasn't aware of any games related to it. I do remember the novelization, which went on and on about Majority vs. Minority Mogwai. Minority Mogwai (Gizmo) were smarter and longer lived. Majority Mogwai (Stripe and co.) came across as jerks from the start. Also, the book provided the tidbit that the species were created by an individual named Mogturmen.

You know, I don't think I have really seen the entire movie. I remember bits of it. I remember the part in the bar, the old woman, the showing of Snow White that really freaked me out, the Christmas scene, I loved that scene. I was really quite young when the movie came out and I remember having to sleep with the door open for fear of Gremlins getting me. I remember all of the second movie though. I also remember that we had a set of childrens storybooks and records that I rather liked.

Now ask Rich about the time he played a Mogwai in a friend's game and managed to nuke an entire established campaign in one evening...
