Whatever you do, don't expose the new Gremlins soundtrack to light or water! Actually do just that, because the results are awesome! Mondo is reissuing the original motion picture soundtrack for Gremlins and the new cover art is pretty spectacular.
Just in time for the holiday season, Mondo's stellar new release of the Gremlins original soundtrack will make you want to break all of the rules (or at least 2 of the 3) that everyone knows by heart. 1. No bright light. 2. Don't get them wet. 3. Never feed them after midnight
The artwork by Phantom City Creative features a UV sensitive gatefold jacket that, when exposed to Daylight, reveals hidden messages. In addition, the disc sleeves are water sensitive, so additional images appear when they are exposed to a damp cloth. And feel free to play the records after midnight without fear of repercussion!
The Gremlins Original Motion Picture Soundtrack arrives as a 2-Disc vinyl LP. It contains all the music you remember and love from the original score by Jerry Goldsmith. It is pressed on 180 Gram Vinyl. And it will retail for $35. What a steal!
Mondo's Gremlins original motion picture soundtrack goes on sale Wednesday, November 30 at Noon CT at MondoTees.com. You can visit the Mondo official site & social handles for more information. These include MondoTees.com, twitter.com/MondoNews, facebook.com/MondoTees and instagram.com/MondoTees.

In Gremlins, a gadget salesman is looking for a special gift for his son and finds one at a store in Chinatown. The shopkeeper is reluctant to sell him the "mogwai" but sells it to him with the warning to never expose him to bright light, water, or to feed him after midnight. All of this happens and the result is a gang of gremlins that decide to tear up the town on Christmas Eve. You can check out all the super cool Gremlins vinyl art here.
