Truly One Of The Better Horror Movies That The 80's Had To Offer!
Sometimes gory and darkly comedic sci-fi horror junk from the
mid-1980's that has the titled alien creatures (nasty little
carnivorous furry beasts with glowing eyes and enormous mouths filled
with rows of razor sharp teeth) escaping from a containment cell in
outer space only to come to this planet to terrorize an unsuspecting
mid-western family. Face-morphing alien bounty hunters, a mentally
disabled store worker/would-be family friend and miscast character
actor M. Emmet Walsh who plays the inept local redneck sheriff round
out the cast of goofy characters who try to defend earth from the
so-called "Crites" or "Critters". Long considered to be a cult-classic
amongst 80's horror aficionados, "Critters" is the kind of flick that
if it doesn't manage to entertain you even a little bit, it should in
the very least keep you awake throughout it's entire duration. Also
look for actor Billy Zane (later the slimy and evil villain in both
"Titanic" and "Tales From The Crypt: Demon Knight") in a near
microscopic role as the boyfriend who becomes one of the monster's very
first victims to be gobbled up. (**1/2 out of *****).

A Kansas farm is attacked by a hoard of hungry flesh-eating monsters from outer-space with razor sharp teeth and a witty attitude! The family who inhabit the farm must seek the help of a local drunk and his critter-fighting bounty hunting pals before its too late... .
This movie was top notch.
just simple suspense movie.
FUNNY MOVIE....INTERESTING THO.
critters 2 is good critters 3 and 4 is good too.
Paranormal activity is a pretty good scary movie. It's worth seeing all 3 movies to appreciate the story line. I like how they tie it all up at the end. .
The best of the little monster movies!
It's still amazing to me how many little monster movies Hollywood churned
out after the success of GREMLINS. You had MUNCHIES, you had GHOULIES and
you had CRITTERS, which surprisingly enough turned out to be the best of the
bunch. Not that I have anything against GREMLINS but CRITTERS has far more
depth and character development than it does and it's leagues above the
Directed by Stephen Herek, who would later go on to helm BILL & TED'S
EXCELLENT ADVENTURE and ROCK STAR with Mark Wahlberg, CRITTERS is a
sci-fi/horror/comedy about a group of fur-ball aliens who escape from a
prison space ship and come to Kansas for a bite to eat with a pair of
intergalactic Bounty Hunters, who can take the face of nearly anyone they
want, on their trail. Now as ridiculous as it all may sound, the characters
are genuine and the family, along with Charlie, is real enough that you will
end up caring about them by the time it's all over.
Still, in the end though CRITTERS is nothing more than campy fun but it's
campy fun that will keep its viewers entertained. Check it out. You'll see
what I mean.
