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

Critters 3 continues the story of the hairy Critters from outer space that try to kill any humans in sight. This time Leonardo DiCaprio joins tenants in an LA apartment complex as they fight to escape death. The film starts off with a family road trip. They stop off at Grover's Bend (same place from the first two movies) and some Critters and their eggs attach onto the car. They eventually wind up in downtown Los Angeles where they live in this seedy apartment building. Of course the eggs hatch and are now on the loose. They kill off a maintenance worker in the basement before attacking a large woman's Bunny slippers. Once they hear her screams for help, the chase is on between the tenants and the little monsters. Leo DiCaprio plays a kid with a nasty stepfather who is actually the landlord of the apartment.
There are plenty of laughs throughout the whole thing. The large woman getting stung in her behind with the critters spikes. There is a funny scene reminiscent to Critters 2 in the diner when the monsters start eating the food and make a mess of the place. In Critters 3, we discover that the critters can indeed pass gas. This third Critters is very different from the other two, but yet just as good. I thought the location of the apartment building was smart and I like the chase scenes throughout the place.
Definitely a good addition to the comical horror series. Check this one out for sure.
