I grew up with Critters movies so I have a real soft spot for them. Amazing movies? Absolutely not but they're a lot of fun.
This 2014 fan made film is something to behold, it looks like a modern AAA Hollywood film. Seriously, the production values are incredible and not what you'd expect from a fan film at all. The last fan film I saw of this high a quality was Never Hike Alone (2017).
It tells the very brief story of a bounty hunter stalking his prey in suburbia and is a very good effort. Clearly a lot of love for the franchise and talent went into crafting these 6 minutes.
But that's the problem, I like shorts but you need to be very careful how you handle them. In 6 minutes you can't exactly tell a story so instead you tend to get just a series of motions before the credits roll.
The creators handle this competently enough, but there still isn't a story. It's I guess you could say closer to an after credits scene of a movie.
I cannot knock the production or any aspect of its creation, they've done an incredible job here but 6 minutes can only go so far.
Loyal to the source material
Restrictive running time impacts it hard
Things I Learnt From This Short:
We NEED a new feature length Critters movie. Not WANT but NEED.
