Where to watch Gremlins

It wouldn’t be the Christmas season without revisiting Gremlins, Joe Dante’s black comedy about tiny, furry creatures called mogwais. When a salesman buys a mogwai for his son as a Christmas present, he is given three rules to follow: Do not let it come into contact with water, do not expose it to sunlight, and never let it eat after midnight. At first, the cute mogwai is harmless and given the name, Gizmo.

When it accidentally receives water, Gizmo spawns five mogwais from its back, but these creatures are much more aggressive and reckless. Led by their leader, Stripe, the troublemaking mogwai create a small army, wreaking havoc on the entire town. It’s up to Gizmo and his human pals to end Stripe’s reign and save Christmas.

Where is it streaming?

Original programming, like Hacks and The Flight Attendant, exists under the banner “Max Originals.” In 2023, HBO Max and Discovery+ will consolidate into one platform after the merger between WarnerMedia and Discovery.

Launched in 2020, Peacock is the home to popular NBC shows like The Office, Law & Order, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The service boasts many sports programs, from the NFL, Premier League, and WWE. Peacock has also expanded into scripted and non-scripted original programming with shows like Vampire Academy and A Friend of the Family, and a documentary about Casey Anthony.

lily-charmed listed on couponmatrix.ukJewellery makes for a great gift whether it's for someone else or for yourself. Make sure you save money on your purchases with Groupon's Lily Charmed voucher codes. Lily Charmed was launched in 2011 by cousins Marcus Pearce and Lucy Lee, and named after Marcus’ daughter Lily. They wanted to create a desirable collection of charm jewellery, that could be worn and loved everyday, each piece hand finished, and packaged in a gift box tied with ribbon in order to create a truly memorable gift. They created ‘sentiment cards’ to frame the charm necklaces and charm bracelets, and give meaning to the gift. The ‘sentiment cards’ were so popular, that they took a further step and created a page where customers could create their own cluster necklaces and bracelets and then add their own personal message. They developed a range gold charms, letter charms, and a collection of earrings and further charm designs, due to customer request. They believe they are the only charm designers to offer their customers the choice of a Matte Satin or Polished finish (on our silver charms). Already got the perfect message ready to personalise your jewellery with to give to a special someone. Make sure you browse our Groupon Lily Charmed discount vouchers to make money in the process.
