Our friends at Creepy AF Show presents Gremlins, Joe Dante's holiday horror favorite!

In quaint Norman Rockwell-esque town Kingston Falls at Christmastime, inventor (Hoyt Axton) purchases a cute, fuzzy little Mogwai from a Chinatown shopkeeper's grandson, who dispenses the above-mentioned warning before closing the deal. He brings the creature home to his son Billy (Galligan), a bank clerk who crushes on his co-worker Kate (Phoebe Cates), and who quickly develops a bond with his strange new pet, who he names Gizmo. But what happens when Gizmo gets wet? And even worse – what happens when you feed a Mogwai after midnight?

Featuring a delicate balance between family-friendly whimsy and nightmarish terror that few could pull off, Gremlins has become a Christmas movie-viewing tradition for many who grew up in the 80's.

Exploding onto the silver screen is Die Hard, because yes, it is a Christmas movie!

If you took a shot of whiskey for every Christmas reference offered by Die Hard (Ho Ho Ho Now I Have A Machine Gun, the music, the decorations…), you'd be hammered by the time Bruce Willis' New York cop John McClane first catches on that all is not well at his ex-wife's L.A. company Christmas party. It seems a group of terrorists (or are they?) have crashed the high-rise festivities, heavily armed and led by suave Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman), and they have no intention of letting anyone leave the building alive. What's a gung-ho, John Wayne-quoting lone gunman to do?

Featuring memorable performances by Reginald VelJohnson, Bonnie Bedelia, and Hart Bochner, Die Hard is just about as perfect an action movie as the 80's had to offer.

The band takes the stage one by one and is joined by a cadre of guest musicians for a career-spanning and cinematic performance that features creative choreography and visuals.
