Gremlins (1984)

Three simple rules could've kept Kingston Falls the peaceful town that it was.  But rules were made to be broken.  After Billy's cute little mogwai gets wet, it spawns several mischievous green Gremlins who wreak havoc on Christmas Eve.  Along with Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom, Gremlins inspired the PG-13 rating after uproar from parental units who took their little gremlins to see the not quite R-rated but not quite PG-rated violence.
