In this episode of The Geek Awakens, I watched 1984’s Gremlins for the “first” time. First is in quotes because my terrible, horrible, very mean, but mostly lovely cousins showed it to me when I was a wee-tiny child, and it terrified me. Turns out, watching it as an adult was no less scary. 

After doing some Internet research, I discovered that Gremlins was one of two movies that made the MPAA create the PG-13 rating. Good. This movie is not good for kids. Or adults. Or mankind.

The Geek Awakens: Our new show about a grown-ass woman who's never seen 'Star Wars'
Growing up, I didn’t watch the same movies or TV shows other kids did. While most of you were watching Goonies and playing Metroid , I was watching sports films and playing with an abacus. My mother was not born in the U.S., and my dad was an athlete who wasn’t into science fiction.
