Destructive parasitic aliens crash land on a small farm in Kansas and it is up to a young boy and his family's hired farmhand to help two intergalactic bounty hunters stop them from destroying the planet.
In what appears to be a cross between Critters and The Towering Inferno, the residents of a shoddy L.A. apartment block are chased up to the roof by hoards of the eponymous hairy horrors. Written by

A young family stop off at a lay-by on their way home. At the lay-by they meet bounty hunter Charlie who warns them about something living in the woods. However that `something' has just attached it self under their mobile home and hitches a ride back to their tenement block where the critters cause havoc amongst the residents.
Lets be honest no one say to be shocked to discover this is a cheap little film that doesn't have too much going for it. The plot is the usual people hunted by critters stuff, this time in a building so it's like Die Hard with aliens .err no! The story doesn't matter as the action is what counts.
Sadly the action is poor it's not really gory and the critter attacks are always more funny than thrilling. There is no real excitement or tension and it's all a bit predictable take a guess who'll live and who'll die the cute kids or the evil landlord? See! The one thing it does have though is a sort of humour the critters have senses of humours and are cruel and some of this is amusing.
However the comedy is nowhere near the one it aspires to Gremlins, and really the funniest bit is how silly the whole thing is. Needless to say the acting is poor some people can't even be mauled convincingly. But it's interesting to see DiCaprio's debut, even if he looks about 9 years old!
Really this is a bit of dumb fun that is daft and slightly shoddy. It's may just pass the time but there are much better horror/comedies out there if you want them.
