Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1983. Revised Seventh Draft script for the 1984 film, with a single notation in holograph ink. Hole shadows but with script and revision leaves watermarked GREM00104 throughout, a standard practice for Amblin Entertainment productions in the 1980s.
The story of a family besieged by small, troublemaking creatures that wreak havoc on their town over the Christmas holiday. The criticism that the film's blend of horror and comedy drew caused executive producer Steven Spielberg to suggest that the Motion Picture Association of America design a new, more fitting film rating, which led the MPAA to create the PG-13 rating in response.
Set in Kingston Falls, NY.
