The director would go on to do a bunch of awful Hollywood flicks such as Bill And Ted's Excellent Adventure and Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter's Dead. Yuck!!! While I could never bring myself to watch anything else from this director I remain a fan of Critters.
Dee Wallace who plays the mother in The Hills Have Eyes and Cujo once again will play the role of mother. I suppose her character is closer to that of The Hills Have Eyes because she definitely doesn't have the strength that she does in Cujo. She does take out one critter with a shotgun blast but eventually she gets one of those darts to the neck and is pretty useless through the rest of the movie. Wallace being my personal favorite of all mommy-scream-queens I enjoy her presence here.
Grab some beers and some junk food and pig-out with Critters for a Gremlins-esque ripoff from the cheesy 80's.
