Billy Peltzer’s father buys him a new cuddly pet. But heed these three warnings: Don’t ever get him wet, keep him away from bright light, and the most important thing, no matter how much he cries, no matter how much he begs … never, never feed him after midnight.
A man buys a Mogwai as a Christmas present for his son. The young boy is told to keep the pet away from water, out of the light and never to feed it after midnight. Inadvertently, the creature is dampened and almost instantly, produces half a dozen furry replicas of itself—which continue to multiply and turn the small town upside-down.
