“Critters” is one of those rare movies that comes along that, despite all odds against it, manages to strike just the right chord. A little-monsters mix of scifi, horror, and comedy, the film uses its low budget as part of its charm. It scales the film farely small, that being a family farm that’s attacked by Crites, voracious little eating machines from outer space, rather than a world-spanning threat. This is likely due to the low budget, but it works very well because the lower scale gives the audience a chance to know and identify with the characters, including the Crites themselves. The Crites are more than just Gremlins from space. They have their own language (subtitled, of course) and given that there are only a handful of them gives the filmmakers a chance to give them some character as they interact with each other and the environment (watching one of them try to talk to an ET doll is worth a chuckle). It’s not a great film, but it’s still a fun way to spend an hour and a half. Just don’t expect the same magic from the sequels.
Good watch, could watch again and do recommend.
This is a good one to jump into the way back machine for, and I’m waiting on a reboot to happen. (Actually….”The Tomorrow War” is sort of on the same track)
The critters themselves are (in a horrible way) cute and vicious looking, the acting is decent, the story is good, and I’m a big fan of the shape shifting hunters sent to kill them.
When it comes down to it, the movie is a lot of fun and worth giving a watch.
Quite fun actually
At the start of ‘Critters’, somewhere in space, 10 ‘Crites’ are being brought to custody, but 8 of them escape, so that 2 hunters have to get them back. Now, this sequence could have easily lasted 10 minutes in any other movie, but ‘Critters’ doesn’t waste time: it takes about one minute. There is no explanation what these Crites are exactly, who the hunters are, or why the’re all going to earth. They just do. That way, all the fun happens on the earth. The Crites come to earth nearby a farm in the middle of nowhere (where else really), where they attack the family living there. The usual scenes of the kettle eaten, the silly police chief and the village idiot/drunk who warned everybody this was going to happen are all thrown in, but the movie never loses pace and is pretty funny all around, and not that gruesome either. A nice 80’s horror flick, worth watching. 6/10.
A bit like gremlins but with more sophisticated humour
