Critters

It’s no picnic for the Brown family when a lethal litter of carnivorous aliens arrives unannounced at their Kansas farm. Trapped in a deadly nightmare, the terrified Browns fight for their lives against the attacking bloodthirsty monsters. But it’s a losing battle until two intergalactic bounty hunters arrive, determined to blow the hellish creatures off the planet! It’s an alien adventure, full of action and just crawling with Critters!

Critters 2: The Main Course

Is it human? Is it a beast? Whatever it is, IT LIVES AGAIN in this second film in the Critters quadrilogy!

It’s been two years since the fiendish Critters first terrorized the town of Grovers Bend and sent the Brown family packing. But the “boy who called Critter,” Brad Brown (Scott Grimes), is back … and just in time. Critter eggs have been hatching lethal litters, and the bloodthirsty hairballs are eager to partake in their favorite pastime – eating. In no time, the eggs are popping open everywhere – a field full of livestock becomes a gigantic feeding ground, and local residents are disappearing by the mouthful. Fortunately, three bounty hunters from space, Ug, Lee and Charlie, are flying back to eradicate the problem. But can they wipe out the Critters before Grovers Bend is erased from the map? With outstanding special effects, Critters 2 – The Main Course delivers a fine repast of morbid mayhem!

Critters 3

First, they destroyed a farm. Then they destroyed a town. Now they’re ready to do some REAL damage!

Leonardo DiCaprio stars in the third and most outrageous installment of the classic cult tale of the infamous Critters. As the fanged, furious furballs viciously invade an L.A. apartment building and sink their teeth into the low-rent tenants, Josh (DiCaprio) leads the battle to beat back the conniving critters and save the planet. It won’t be an easy job, but he’s the one person the human race must depend on to destroy these terrifying alien hedgehogs once and for all!

Critters 4

They’ve returned home …. to outer space!

The Critters are back in this supercharged sci-fi space adventure! But these are no ordinary Critters – they’re a super strain of genetically engineered mutants designed to take over the universe! This time, they’re hungry to conquer the galaxy, with an appetite for mankind that’s out of this world. Joined by Angela Bassett (Black Panther) and Brad Dourif (Child’s Play), Don Keith Opper and Terrence Mann reprise their popular roles as they battle for survival against the Critters, a nuclear meltdown and the fate of the universe!
