A father presents his son with the ultimate gift – a loving pet to be his friend. However, it comes with strict rules that must not be ignored, otherwise the creature will sprout diabolical siblings who relish mayhem and despair. Don’t let the cute and fluffy Gizmo fool you – this is a darkly comic tale of a Christmas gone wrong and a small town under attack from the creatures of your nightmares.

The screening on Wednesday 8 December features an intro by Justin Johnson, Lead Programmer.
