Critters Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Critters, an amusing horror comedy directed by[[Performer~P94115~Stephen Herek~stephenherek]], is the story of a family menaced by eight basketball sized creatures from outer space who arrive at their Kansas farm in search of food. Helen Brown ([[Performer~P68458~Dee Wallace Stone~deewallace]]) and Brad ([[Performer~P28899~Scott Grimes~scottgrimes]]), owners of the farm find themselves held hostage as the creatures roll, jump and bounce around during the night. They are pursued by a pair of inept, intergalactic bounty hunters, Charlie ([[Performer~P105111~Don Keith Opper~donopper]]) and Johnny ([[Performer~P45104~Terrence Mann~terrencemann]]) who can shape-shift at will and are packing weapons capable of taking care of any creature they encounter. The special effects of this humorous thriller are extremely good and the creatures themselves have distinct and separate personalities. ~ Linda Rasmussen, Rovi
