Movie Trivia - March 19 - Gremlins

Chris Columbus (director of Home Alone and Mrs. Doubtfire) wrote the script for Gremlins.

In Chris Columbus's original script, Lynn Peltzer was killed by the gremlins and her head rolled down the stairs. This along with several other darker elements (ie, the family dog is eaten by the gremlins, the gremlins attack a McDonald's and eat the customers but refuse to touch the hamburgers) were never shot due to the fact that both, Joe Dante and Warner Bros. wanted the movie to be more family oriented.
