Remember that family-friendly horror comedy about the cute little gremlin in a wooden box? Yeah, well, director Ryan Bellgardt’s Gremlin is a different kind of beast entirely—something exponentially more terrifying. Horror Freaks may remember Bellgardt as the director of the Civil War horror Army of Frankensteins back in 2013. Check out the trailer for Gremlin below and I think you’ll agree: There’s nothing cute about this little fiend!
Official Synopsis: The film follows Adam Thatcher, still reeling from the death of his son, who receives a mysterious box from a relative containing a creature that will brutally kill everyone he cares about. The only way to release himself from the curse is to give the box to someone else he loves, only continuing the circulation of evil. As the timer on the box counts down, Adam must decide whether to save his family or unleash the monster onto humanity.
It stars Adam Hampton (“The Unusual Calling of Charlie Christmas”), Kristy K. Boone (“Suedehead”), Catcher Stair (“The Foreverlands”), Katie Burgess (“Two Secrets”), Mike Waugh (“Army of Frankensteins”) and Caleb Milby (“Monday at 11:01 A.M.”).
There’s not an exact release date yet, but horror fans can expect to catch this vicious critter (or at least try to) sometime in 2017. We’ll keep you posted.
