Another mid-‘80s classic. A kid gets a strange creature for Christmas – his dad bought it in an odd little shop in Chinatown. This cute little furry guy came with instructions though – never get him wet, keep him out of the light and never feed him after midnight. Water lets him multiply and food after midnight turns them into nasty little reptilian versions bent on causing havoc. Naturally these rules get broken and the quiet little town becomes a horror show. Still great after all these years.
This DVD special edition includes never before seen extended and deleted scenes, two feature length commentary tracks, behind the scenes documentary and more.
