Those space faring, voracious mullet sporting eating machines will be making their long awaited return. The Critters return in a Warner Brothers web series courtesy of the studio's Blue Ribbon Content Media in the form of eight episode, ten minute webisodes. From ZomBeavers director Jordan Rudin. CRITTERS:A NEW BINGE has the Krites returning to Earth to locate a lost Critter offspring. And on top of chaos heading Burbank ,California with the Krites and their progeny, a group of Bounty Hunters are in hot pursuit of the Critters.
Image
And they're willing to go through everyone and anything to take out their quarry. Also returning for the show, are the effects gurus of the original 1986 classic, the Chido Brothers. Who promise to keep the creature effects practical in the production. :huge:

Awesome! Loved Critters 1 and 2, 3 is cheesy fun and 4 is awful. Can't wait to have these guys back!

We need them and then Gremlins!

Critters is coming, some practical effects shots and best of all THE CRITTER BALL IS BACK! Looks to be a love letter to the Critters fan base.

Okay...so...

I'm an "old school" Critters fan from my childhood & I watched
both the first & second films on VHS countless times.

For many years I have wondered why the Critters franchise has
gone mostly ignored...despite nearly every other franchise in the
world being milked for every last drop...and now...it appears the
Crites are finally returning...

And I can only hope its as fun, creative & violent as the original
2 films...

Also...a topless female bounty hunter with large breasts would
be much appreciated.

:thumbsup:

Every. Single. Line. Read. Is. Awful.

Those are the performances that were considered good enough to help sell the show to an audience?

I completely understand, the Critters films while fun,goofy and toung-in-cheek were never the sort of so bad it's good type.

I really want that whole attitude towards things like Critters, to skreeonk off and die! As it's ruining horror cinema in my opinion.

This looks absolutely ridiculous, the acting looks horrible, the dialog is meh... and with that said IM IN!

The Critters themselves look fine given the extremely low budget, LOVED the Critter ball as I see they eat a lot of dumb people so believe it or not I am totally ready!

Plus I love how there keeping them talking in there own language, In the first when 1 Critter got shot the other said ''poop'' and ran and in Critters 2 the restaurant scene when the Critter gets his hair blown off he looks in the mirror and goes ''BITCHIN'' LMAO.

This. A lot of the "embrace the cheesiness, so-bad-it's-good" movement that seems to be an increasingly dominant force in sci-fi and horror circles sort of misses the point of a lot of the old movies they praise; while many of them are admittedly bad/hokey/whatever, they were borne out of something genuine. Be it a writer who wanted to tell a gripping story that just didn't translate well into film, a director who wanted to make a good movie despite not having much to work with, SFX artists who poured their heart and soul into making semi-decent effects despite a limited budget, or actors trying to turn in a decent performance, or even if everyone's just having fun making a movie, there's something genuine there; intentionally making a film to be bad just seems like laziness all around.

So, there's going to be a new film as well. It's going to be on SYFY, the people who produced the new Tremors movies are behind it and there's a rumor that Dee Wallace might be back for it.

I’m sorry, is there something I’m missing with Critters? Why is it getting so much new poop? The first film was a passable little monster film but definitely not four sequels and a TV show’s worth of interesting stories to tell.

I thought the same thing about Halloween, the first is a Classic but it's sequels never lived up to the potential but I liked the Reboot.

Critters is a fun B movie romp, Critters 1 and Critters 2 are both good. 3 is alright 4 I honestly don't remember at all.

Tremors was going to have two different series going until Kevin Bacon got his canceled. Chucky has now 2 different series going.
There's plenty of story they can make up for Critters as they are a intelligent extra terrestrial species known for causing terror wherever they go. I doubt earth is the only planet they try and destroy not counting all the bounty hunters that failed to kill them.


Plus if Critters can even be moderately successful, it can finally lead to another Gremlins film and something new? Besides Freddy is dormant, Jason is tied up in legal dispute, and both Aliens and Predator are clinging to life support. It's not like Hollywood has a whole lot of horror icon's left.

The head of special effects for the project, isn't too please about the reaction the trailer for the show is getting. Definitely the best response by a creator to fans critiquing their work, I've seen in along time. Hell, he'll he's just asking to give the show a chance.

I wish, that everyone working in the creative industries would act like this guy when faced with criticism. You know not calling the audience every horrible thing under the sun.

Saying that, people are aloud to make judgments about the show based on the trailer. Our time and money are not infinite, that's why we make judgments about things like movies and tv shows based on what's presented in trailers.

Hell Yes! I liked his response, personally I am with him I am just happy to have Critters back.

Personally I had no problem with the Critters themselves just the actors LOL the effects don't bother me.
Looking forward to see what SYFY has in store for Critters and see how there take differs.

Jesus. It's like learning about a childhood friend dying somehow twice during the same week. No franchise deserves this fate.
