“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.
It’s great when you re-visit a film you enjoyed as a kid and find that as an adult it still totally holds up. Sure _Critters_ almost definitely found its start as nothing more than one of the slew or various _Gremlins_ rip-offs that were being written up at the time, but it’s precisely the differences **from** _Gremlins_ that make _Critters_ any kind of success. The more overt sci-fi elements of the film have become a mainstay in the franchise, and are a big part of what makes this thing worth coming back to.
_Final rating:★★★½ – I really liked it. Would strongly recommend you give it your time._
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.
Two Words–> Critters rock
and they roll and they chew and they eat and eat and eat. Darn those space people for solving the critter problem.
This was one of those TV late night movies that is totally awesome because of its creativity. Oh course while I watched it, I had no dreams of Gremlins and never connected the two.
In reality, I guess Critters are Gremlins without the Gizmos, but then again Gremlins without Gizmos are just plain mean.
and Critters are just mean….
They kill with no reason, they eat like there is no tomorrow, and even the Church cannot save the poor town’s cattle.
As far as a classic, this is not, but it and Tremors are up there with the most immaginative and creative horror movies of the past few decades.
