Geek out over Gremlins with '80s Spielberg in newly recovered footage

For geeks of a certain age, the 1984 classic Gremlins is an indisputable classic. So, want to relive the glory with '80s-era Steven Spielberg?

A classic behind-the-scenes featurette has surfaced online, containing interviews with director Joe Dante, Spielberg (who served as a producer) and the cast and crew. It’s a great blast from the past, and a nice reminder of the practical effects, big hair and WTF plots that made the '80s such a great era for film. 

The exact genesis of the featurette is unknown, though The Playlist notes it was likely produced for a VHS release back in the day, or perhaps a TV special. So kick back and enjoy.
