the critters are back for the main course
31 October 2003 | by (england) – See all my reviews

Critters 2: The Main Course was made in 1988, this one had alot of critters in it. so the end for the critters aren't over yet as we all wait for the 3rd and 4th to comewhich came out in 1991. I did enjoy this movie as part of it was like a cowboy style. I give this movie 10 out of 10.
