The low point for the _Critters_ franchise. Surpassing the third film to become the new bottom rung on the ladder. Wouldn’t have been surprised to learn that the creatives behind _Critters Attack!_ had been given only a passing overview on the four films preceding it.
_Final rating:★★ – Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product._
“Critters Attack!” is a strange film to review. I honestly think this film was not made with reviews in mind. No, I mean really not made with reviews in mind, because it’s hard to get a bead on what they were truly going for here. It seems like a reboot, but then Dee Wallace is in it and indicates that the Crites have been around before, although she behaves more like Lee from the first two films so maybe she’s really Terrence Mann in disguise (who is conspicuously absent; I was waiting for him to pop up as it just doesn’t feel like a Critters movie without Terrence Mann)…I don’t know. So, let’s break this down.
To start, you’ll notice that, to the film’s credit, they stick to primarily to practical effects. This is good as it’s trying to at least feel like the original films. Honestly, CGI Crites would probably have been really bad. They even bring back the giant Critter Ball from the second movie, although still no human sized Crites as seen in the first film. Crites are puppets and should only be puppets, although at the same time, something about these new redesigned puppets feels a little off. They’ve always had big mouths, but now they’ve got flip-top heads. Eh…
However, the practical effects bring up a real oddity to this film. There are also a lot of prosthetics used for the Crites to chew on. Now, in and of itself, that wouldn’t be an issue. What makes it odd is that it makes this film much more violent and gory than the previous ones. I like a good gory horror flick as much as the next person, but something about it feels…strange in a Critters movie. The previous films are very tame by comparison, with only two people dying in the first movie. This isn’t necessarily bad as people who watched the old movies have grown up and are more mature now, but it does throw you a little bit.
Then we get to the script. This film feels like it was written by a first-year film student. It’s nonsensical, goes all over the place with little focus, explanation, or even a satisfying ending, if you can even call it an ending since it just seems to stop. The characters are not well fleshed out and they resort to gimmicks to try and get us to remember some of them since they have no other characteristics, like a guy who’s obsessed with bagpipes. Heck, I forgot younger boy in the main group was even there half the time since his gimmick is that he doesn’t talk and only communicates by texting. They probably thought they were being funny, but instead it creates a major stumbling block.
Overall, while it’s still a pretty bad film, but you can at least tell that the filmmakers were fans of the original and were trying to do something of a tribute, and let’s be honest, unless you’re a fan of at least the original movie, you’re probably not going to see this one. In fact, that’s exactly what this feels like: An amateurish fan film. You’re not missing much if you avoid it or never even knew it existed, like me until I stumbled upon it completely by accident. I kind of wish I hadn’t.
“Critters Attack!” is a funny trash that recalls the campy Troma´s films. The cult Dee Wallace also participates in the role of Dee, giving a possible status of cult to this lame production. The bad acting, awful story and funny evil creatures together make a love or hate film. I liked it! My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): Not Available
Well that’s typical for today’s films.
Not only are the characters obnoxious. Not only does most of the story not make sense. Not only do characters say and do the stupidest things. But worst of all they CHANGED things from the original 4. I hate when they change things from the standard they created. It was great seeing Dee Wallace and the teethy fur balls. But even if you’re a fan, this is only, and just barely, worth one watch.
