NOTHING to like, apart from the practical effects.
23 July 2019 | by craiglgarnerjonesSee all my reviews

SEEN IT! Puppets and practical effects are the ONLY good thing in this move. Acting, camera work, colour grading, story, script; it was all bad!

Nothing captured what I loved about the first couple of films. No explanation as to Aunt D being there or where her family was; she has 10 minutes of screen time if that, low budget obviously not enough to pay her more. No bounty hunters.

The worst thing was the story and characters... if you're trying to imitate Stranger Things, at least do it, instead of half-assing it with bad child actors; they didn't even look terrified when an army of Crites where coming for them.

Such a shame, a missed opportunity. There are still only 4 Critters movies to me.

Please pass this feedback onto the Writer and Director, because even I can write a better script than this, with my 8 years worth of short film writing experience.

There was no story. It was like a joke of the franchise, a mix between Aliens (A Queen Crite... just no, they had no Queen in the first movie, and why did she kill them, no explanation, not like I even cared due to the bad story), a Crite who landed in an escape pod, but with no explanation of where it came from, or why it was scarred across the eye. Child character we cannot get invested in, nor care about. There is not much to this at all, it looks like it was written and shot over a weekend with permission to use the original Critter puppets, and yeah, I noticed you reused a lot of the older ones for this film, even the bald one from part 3, and the grey haired one.

I will NOT be purchasing this for the collection, I choose to ignore its existence, it's not worthy.
