I LOVED Stephen Herek’s 1986 film Critters so much I think I racked up easily $99 in rental fees from my local Blockbuster (if you don’t remember, new release VHS tapes cost about $99 back in the day). I’m not sure if I was expecting a sequel or not, obviously the internet didn’t exist and if you weren’t up to date on Fango you usually had no idea what was coming next.
So when I saw this for Mick Garris’ Critters 2 in front of a film (I forget which one) at my local multiplex I totally lost my sh*t! I remember thinking the big giant ball of Critters was the coolest thing I had ever seen. Perhaps it failed to ignite passion in anyone else though, the movie tanked. Maybe they should have used Grandma’s line when Brad announces the Critters are back, “No sh*t, Bradley!“
