"The battle began in another galaxy.
It's about to end in the Brown's backyard." Critters
was a 1986 science fiction horror flick that has become
an 80’s era cult classic. Although the film received
mixed reviews, it ended up being a box office success.
Producers deemed it worthy enough for a number of
sequels: Critters 2 was released in 1988, Critters 3 in
1991, and Critters 4 in 1991.
In this movie, a group of very nasty
aliens, called Crites, are being transported from one
site to another on a prison asteroid in outer space. A
couple of the Crites manage to stage an escape, and a
group of them abscond with a ship and set off to, where
else, Earth! In hot pursuit are two bounty hunters
hired by the leader of the prison station to track down
manage to crash land near the rural Kansas farm house of
the Brown family, who sets out to investigate the
crashing “comet”. In the meantime, the Critters are
hungry, and they go about the business of eating
everything in their path, from cows to police officers.
The rest of the movie is the Brown family’s battle
against the Critters. In the end, the bounty hunters
and the Browns destroy the Critters as they try to blast
off in their ship. The bounty hunters leave the Brown’s
with a device to help rebuild the damage caused, and the
movie ends with a cut to the barn, where Critter eggs
can be seen (hence the sequels).
