Storyline

Just before bounty hunter Charile triggers his gun to destroy the last two Critter-eggs, he gets a message that it would be illegal to extinguish the race from the galaxy. He's sent a transporter where he puts the eggs - unfortunately the transporter takes him with it and then gets lost in space. After 53 deep-frozen years, he's found by a private wreckage collector team under the unscrupulous Rick. On behalf of the mighty company Terracor they bring him to an empty space station - but Rick is curious and opens the box... so Charlie has work again, to keep the Critters from eating everybody.

Goofs

(at around 37 mins) Obvious puppets used in first killing scene. When the attacked character runs and slams his hand towards walls and objects you can see it's just a Critter-puppet attached to his hand. Later on when the character is dead you can see the Critters move and blink their eyes normally. See more »

User Reviews

An okay entry to the series but extremely watered down.
12 October 2011 | by jhpstrydomSee all my reviews

At this point the CRITTERS series has pretty much lost its flare, this entry seemed to have taken itself more seriously because there was virtually no humor where the other films each had a fair share, the Crites never once shoot their trademark darts so the writers seem to have forgotten to add that small little detail and there is very little excitement because there's barely anything that happens.

On the plus side the acting was good all around and the script wasn't exactly terrible but the fact that this film leaves out certain key elements like I mentioned before is probably the film's biggest downfall, because for a film that has three others to live up to, this was rather disappointing.

The only thing that kept the film from being a total waste was the good performances by the cast, its not a bad movie and its mainly and okay entry but fails to reach any of the previous films due to the fact that several notable elements were left out.
