Critters Attack might’ve been 25+ years in the making but what we get instead is an insipid story, which would’ve been fine if not for the fact it was mostly dull and lacked any real fun or entertainment.
This Critters Collection is another nicely done work from Shout through their Scream Factory line featuring two solid movies and two… not so good ones. The transfers are all relatively well done and the features packaged together were fantastic.
I suppose there are worse ways to spend 90-minutes than sitting through Critters 4, even if the titular creatures don’t seem to have as much screen time with only two on-screen kills. Of note, though, the inclusions of Angela Bassett and Brad Dourif did make it more interesting.
Critters 3 is a step down from the previous installments but still fun, albeit more seeing Leonardo DiCaprio before he made it internationally huge some years later with Titanic. The rest of the cast were fine and the Critter designs were still impressive.
Critters 2: The Main Course might not be as good as the original, but the humor still mostly worked and I actually enjoyed the interactions between the critter bounty hunters, each of them providing a bit more personality (and seriously, wouldn’t have minded seeing some sort of spin-off).
