.......Probably not, but it is certainly up there with the best, most of the originals return in this sequel. Smalltown folk, Billy (Zach Galligan) and Kate(Phoebe Cates) move to Big Apple, the only thing is, the furry critter that started all the trouble in the first movie, Gizmo, also turns up. And sooner than you can say ''gooey, sticky pods'' there are more little fuzzballs running about; and you know what happens when the rules(Don't feed them after mignight, etc)aren't followed: Scary, Green, GREMLINS! This time they set about an office block in NY, and in the genetics dept., things go from bad to worse, with the Gremlins(now multiplied tenfold)DRINKING GENES, and taking on those genes' persona:eg. Brain Gremlin, Spider Gremlin. The way that the Brain Gremlin is executed is surprisingly effective. Great acting, and some brilliant comedic moments, ''Gremlins 2-The New Batch'' is a refreshing sequel, that is well worth a look.
