<b>'Gremlins'</b> (1984)<br>
<br>
Joe Dante’s anarchic comedy horror thriller is jam-packed with movie in-jokes, including “Forbidden Planet,” “It’s a Wonderful Life” and countless more. But the movie about nasty little creatures run amok in a small town is mostly revered among the anti-Christmas crowd for actress Phoebe Cates’ monologue about how she found out there’s no Santa Claus. We won’t relate the entire speech here, just know that it involves a missing father, a decomposed body and a slightly charred Santa Claus suit.
