This Movie Is A Classical Version Of Why We Are Afraid Of Monsters
Ever since I watched this movie when I was 4, I always knew it would be my favorite of All Time.
This Movie is a perfect look of how we can take a plot that may sound sort of pathetic, and make it a hit. This movie has great special effects for its time, as well as great looks. The Critters are Nasty looking and can give you quite a scare. They'll make you think twice about walking into a basement.
It has been told and said that CRITTERS is a copy of the "CLASSIC" movie Gremlins. Personally, I think thats just an excuse because this movie rocks and put some pressure on the Gremlin people.
You cant look at this movie as a modern aged and modern special effects man. This was 86, and not the biggest time of great effects. Even so, if you haven't seen this movie, get down to the movie store and rent it!
