Eric’s blueberry drink. Why we do this show. Is this even a film? Harold Ramis. Makeup. The good kind of bad. Poor satire. Who sees bad films? Using mood in comedy. Artsy shots. Dark comedy realization moment. Counter-christmas-culture. Primary vs secondary characters. The single best dark comedy moment yet. Theatrical prop comedy. The road map. A smart screenplay. Three rules. Gremlins as a monster film. The three methods of monster films. Assembling a dark comedy. Smoking. The MPAA. The 1984 backlash against Gremlins. An ironic ratings note. Misbehaving. Our Terminator + The Prophecy progress.
