GRIND HAÜS: A Very Creature Christmas!

  • Turbo Haüs 5011 Rue Notre Dame Ouest Montréal, QC, H4C 1T2 Canada (map)

Come celebrate the holiday season with your pals here at GRIND HAÜS!

Joe Dante’s 1984 GREMLINS is the essential Christmas creature feature! This film’s immense charm is matched only by its insanity and mayhem when the little gooey gremlins are let loose on picturesque Pickford Falls. William Peltzer (played by Zach Galligan of WAXWORKS) is the wholesome son of an inventor who gives his young son an early Christmas gift, a rare and mythical creature called a Mogwai. When the fuzzy little critter was first bought the seller gave him three strict rules of warning; “no bright light, don’t get him wet and never feed him after midnight! No matter how much he begs.” Peltzer learns the hard way that these rules were meant to be followed and soon an army of tiny terrors are let loose to pillage and party!

But first…

Will Vinton’s A CLAYMATION CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION (1987) is extremely hard to explain. Arguably one of the most overlooked classic Christmas special’s of all time and one of the strangest. Hosted by a pair of dinosaurs this special visits classic Christmas carols but in the trippiest way imaginable! Within 20 minutes you get California Raisins, figure skating walruses, Quasimodo conducting bells and more! This spectacular stop motion animation is brilliant and bizarre and crammed with creatures and holiday cheer!
