Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Picture.
While I think Temple of Doom is a better film, Gremlins 2 shares a similar fan-backlash fate as Indy’s second cinematic adventure. Both movies took an element of the previous and took a hard turn in that direction. In Temple of Doom’s case they took the face-melting and scary as shit ark ghosts stuff and went whole hog in that direction. Gremlins 2 took the crazy Looney Tunes influence and similarly just went for it.
I always appreciate it when a sequel doesn’t try to just remake the first film, so naturally I really enjoy me some Gremlins 2. Lightning Gremlin, that fucked up spider Gremlin, the super goofy turn by Christopher Lee… I’m a fan.
So, how about a BTS pic from Gremlins 2 then? Here’s Joe Dante helping the great Christopher Lee celebrate some big event on the set of the sequel. Could be a birthday or some landmark moment or just because they want a special cake. They’re allowed. By the way, how sweet is that cake? Thanks to Ken Thompson Marchesi and Trailers From Hell for the shot!

A funny thing happened on the way to tomorrow’s pic.
