In the latest episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, Simon looks back at the very differing productions of two very differing films!

Gremlins (1984) started life as an outright horror movie, that barely had the character of Gizmo in it. Even after it changed, one scene in particular would have Warner Bros offering to physically cut 55 seconds out of every single print.

Snakes On A Plane (2006) meanwhile changed title, and taught Hollywood some very potent lessons about the internet…

Stories of both are discussed in this episode…
