They're back for seconds!The nasty little aliens with the voraciousappetite for human flesh may have been defeated, but they left somethingbehind . . . And when two men from a small town in Kansas find a bunchof exotic eggs, the critters soon hatch--unleashing a very hungry hordeof ugly little monsters on the town.

At first I was surprised to see the "Critters" films on DVD. Of course, then I remembered that the company was New Line, a company that does a stellar job on all of its DVD releases, from the "A Nightmare on Elm Street" collection to the current "The Lord of the Rings" DVDs. Every one made is well done, unlike several companies that put out mediocre crap for movies they don't appreciate. With this knowledge, I eagerly purchased "Critters 2."
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.

For whatever reason, this second entry in the Critters saga starts by canceling out everything in the first film, denying it ever happened and blaming what didn't happen on Brad Brown (Scott Grimes), the young hero from the first film. On vacation, Brad returns to his hometown and is immediately treated as a scourge for something no one wants to admit happened in the first place. Worse, they look upon him as the boy who cried CRITTER! I've never understood this idiotic approach because there were witnesses to the first thrashing this town suffered. AND. There were bodies! They weren't the figment of some kid's imagination. Be that as it may, in this film, no one has long to wait for the 2 year old Critter eggs to finally hatch and play havoc with the town's Easter celebrations. At that point, everyone is a believer and seeks to fight back.
For a lot of reasons, this film isn't nearly as good as its predecessor. Foremost, the incomparable M. Emmet Walsh isn't playing Sheriff Harv this time. Instead, we have Barry Corbin grinning like a loon in the same role (hardly an adequate replacement). Most of the cast is new, few give out memorable performances. The town of Grover's Bend seems a lot smaller. Everything seems watered down; more of an appetizer than a main course. Still, it has a few moments (the mishap in the bunny costume for one).

You say "Passion of the Christ" is not enough to satisfy your need for a horror film set on Easter? Well, scifi/horror/comedy sequel "Critters 2" might be just what you need!

It's been two years since the small Kansas town invaded by the Krites in the previous film was, well, invaded, and now, bounty hunters Ug, Lee, and their recruit from Earth, Charlie, are being contacted to return and clean up the planet once and for all. See, at the end of the first film, a nest of Critter eggs was left behind. Well, they're finally gonna hatch, but not before being painted and hidden for the local egg hunt! Mayhem ensues, along with some nasty deaths. It's just Brad Brown's luck to be visiting his old hometown again too. He naturally is immediately considered to be part of the cause of what's going one. Together with the bounty hunters, they must again do battle with the Krites to the bitter end! And it's going to be just as weird and dangerous as the first time!

Critters 2: The Main Course is a fun little sequel to the 1986 classic. The key castmembers return, and the Critters are bad as ever. It's another great ride in the tradition of alien monster invasion movie sequels. The DVD includes the sequel and can also be bought in a DVD set with the other 4 films. Well recommended for fans of the genre, especially from the 80's.

Critters 2 picks up where the other one leaves off in Grovers Bend, Kansas. The eggs left behind are placed too close to a heater and a Children's Day Care. The alien bounty hunters return as does Brad Brown (Scott Grimes) the teen hero in the first film. Brad develops a love interest in a teen reporter (Liane Curtis) a "Jimmy Olsen with breasts."

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.
