Thoughts on Critters Attack

ThoughtsCritters Attack is the latest planned reboot in a horror franchise, this time, we get the Critters, which will return them to Earth after the last space adventure. This will look to bring the story back to the simple ideas of a small town coming under attacks from the furballs, with a new lead in Trea that must overcome the numbers to lead her brother to safety. This will give us a new idea behind the critters themselves, which will give us a new adorable version of the critters, while paying respect to the previous versions that will include the giant rolling ball of critters. The film will us the practical effects that made the originals so popular with how the creatures act. The comedy in the film works to make everything have that lighter touch, which is needed to make this film different from the rest of the creature features, maintaining the tone it has had through the whole franchise.

Final Thoughts Critters Attack is a welcome return for the critters to the horror world.
