In the opening scene of Gremlins 2: The New Batch, loveable Mogwai Gizmo sees a clip of Rambo: First Blood Part 2 on TV, which inspires him to fight back against Stripe and his evil allies later on in the film - tying a red bandana around his head and launching an all out John Rambo-inspired assault on his fellow Gremlins. But what if the sequel had been made in the 2000s, rather than in the 1990s? What action flick would Gizmo be more likely to catch a clip of on TV, and use as inspiration to fight back? Kill Bill, perhaps?
The violence of Quentin Tarantino meets the humor of Joe Dante in this incredibly fun animated mash-up video, which imagines a world where Gizmo indeed does take inspiration from Uma Thurman's bloody revenge on O-Ren Ishii and her Crazy 88, rather than on John Rambo's assault on enemy troops. The man behind the gory re-imagining of Gremlins 2 is Samuel Toniolo, and it took him about a year's worth of work to complete - now that's dedication!
