Scary Cute Creatures

There are three simple rules for keeping a gremlin: Don’t expose it to sunlight, never let it touch water, and never, under any circumstances, feed it after midnight. In Joe Dante’s Gremlins, Gizmo, the main gremlin, proves to be a difficult responsibility when it keeps spawning little equally terrifying destructive monsters. The movie is creepy and a bit scary, but mainly really funny. It’s the movie that forever changed the rating system. And if you no longer own the VHS of the 1984 classic, there’s a chance to see it when Lone Star Film Society hosts a screening of the box-office smash at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (3200 Darnell St.) See the flick at 10 p.m. Friday. Tickets are $7. More at themodern.org
