For those uninitiated (in which case, you should probably see the first movie before getting the second,) Krites (Critters) are little hairball monsters with giant mouths of teeth and little projectile's that launch poison into their victims. Of all the movies following "Gremlins," these are probably the best.
In the first "Critters," an alien species known as the Krites came to Earth to feed and terrorized the Brown family until being destroyed by bounty hunters.
2 years after the events of the original movie, the bounty hunters (now with Charlie as a companion) are called back to Earth. Apparently, their mission of exterminating the Krites has not been fulfilled. The Krites of the first movie had lain eggs in the Brown farm, now abandoned, and a teenage punk has discovered them. Locked in a cold barn for 2 years rendered them unhatchable, but by being pulled out to be sold as Easter Eggs, they're into warmer territory.
At the same time, Bradley Brown, the kid from the first movie, is returning to Grover's Bend for the first time since the incident to stay with his grandmother for Easter. The town starts talking about his return, when all of a sudden, the Krites start hatching and turning the town into dinner.Read more ›
Set two years after the first film, the people of Grover's Bend are shocked when Brad Brown comes home to visit his grandma. He was branded a liar and hoaxer and apparently no one believed his stories of the Krites and extra-terrestrial bounty hunters. Which is a little harsh considering they had several eaten humans and dead Krites as proof. And as soon as he returns, the Krite eggs seen at the very end of the first film begin to hatch and the feeding frenzy begins all over again on a bigger scale.
There's fun to be had in watching the critters go mental all over town. And the film could have been a four-starrer but there's a major lull at the end of the second act in which nothing happens and it really slows down. But the massive furball at the end is brilliant.
They really should have left the Critters movies after this and I wouldn't bother with 3 and 4. They're rubbish. Still the Krites are cute (I don't care what you say) and Brad's girlfriend is gorgeous too.
The DVD is in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen with Dolby 5.1 sound. Some trailers are included.
With the characters established, this film moves quickly into the action which provides us with more camp than the first feature. The Critters are less hidden from the camera in this feature. I enjoyed the sequel more than the original. Nothing like a little girl on a tricycle being chased by Critters.
Parental Guide: No f-bombs or sex. Nudity (Cynthia Garris)
Cast: Scott Grimes, Terrence Mann, Don Keith Opper, Cynthia Garris, Al Stevenson, Tom Hodges, Douglas Rowe, Liane Alexandria Curtis, Lindsay Parker, Herta Ware.
Running Time: 93 minutes
Rated PG-13 for lots of critter violence, gore, language, and nudity.
The two alien bounty hunters from the original "Critters", Ug (the returning Terrence Mann) who still has the physical appearance of the rock star Johnny Steele while his partner Lee (Gregory Patrick) is still a 'nothing-face' & Charlie (the returning Don Keith Opper as Don Opper) who left Earth with them at the end of the original Critters is now a bounty hunter as well, are reintroduced to the viewer. After having successfully captured their latest bounty the threesome receive a message stating that residual Crite life remains on Earth & that they're payment is being withheld until all trace of the Crites on Earth have been destroyed, the three immediately head for Earth. It's been two years since the Crites tried to eat their way through the small American town of Grovers Bend & Bradley Brown (the returning Scott Grimes) is back in town to visit his Grandmother (Herta Ware) just as a local teenager named Wesley (Tom Hopges) finds some unhatched Critter eggs in the now abandoned Brown barn & sells them to an antiques dealer called Quigley (Douglas Rowe) who in turn sells them as Easter eggs. Predictably enough the Critter eggs begin to hatch & the little bloodthirsty hairballs start to eat their way through Grovers Bend. Only Brad & his reporter friend Megan (Liane Alexandra Curtis) know the truth, together with ex-Sheriff Harv (Barry Corbin) & the three bounty hunters they must convince the townspeople about the Crite's & wipe them out before it's too late.Read more ›
