1986’s Critters is kind of like Gremlins meets Star Wars meets E.T. meets a substantially smaller budget. The titular monsters are essentially Furby-esque toys with a thirst for mayhem. Directed by Stephen Herek of Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure fame, the whole thing had a fun B-Movie vibe to it, entertaining ’80s audiences enough to warrant several sequels (the second of which is directed by Rewatchability favourite, Mick Garris). But now, almost 25 years later, does the movie hold up in any way? We’ll let you know if it’s worth Rewatching, and if it deserves “Both Thumbs Up!”
