In “Gremlins: The Secrets of the Mogwai” (“Secrets of the Mogwai”), the eighties classic returns to its roots, with a lively new vision. The HBO Max series is executive produced by Tze Chun and, of course, Steven Spielbergwho worked on the original film.
“Gremlins” was a 1984 film that revolved around a boy named Billy, who receives a peculiar pet that is supposed to be a species called Mogwai.
