LoSceicco1976 has pointed us in the direction of a vintage featurette "Gremlins: Behind The Scenes." We're not sure what it was put together for—perhaps a VHS release of some kind or TV special—but fans will surely get a kick out of the footage from the set, interviews with Dante, Spielberg, star Zach Galligan and more, and really just getting a vibe of what the shoot was all about. It's a nice little coffee break diversion, and after giving it spin, check out our 5 Things You Might Not Know About Joe Dante's 'Gremlins' feature.
