Goofs

(at around 8 mins) When Charlie relates his Critter history to Annie and Josh, he says it all started in 1984. (at around 32 mins) Yet Mr. Menges' tabloid newspapers (and the release date of the first film) would indicate the first attack was in 1986. See more »

Quotes

Marcia: You know if we can make it to the roof, I can get to the junction box outside, tie into the phone lines, call for help.
Josh: You can do that?
Marcia: Hey, I can do anything. I work for the phone company.

Very cheap – but some trashy fun to be had
29 July 2002 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

A young family stop off at a lay-by on their way home. At the lay-by they meet bounty hunter Charlie who warns them about something living in the woods. However that `something' has just attached it self under their mobile home and hitches a ride back to their tenement block where the critters cause havoc amongst the residents.

Lets be honest – no one say to be shocked to discover this is a cheap little film that doesn't have too much going for it. The plot is the usual – people hunted by critters – stuff, this time in a building so it's like Die Hard with aliens….err no! The story doesn't matter as the action is what counts.

Sadly the action is poor – it's not really gory and the critter attacks are always more funny than thrilling. There is no real excitement or tension and it's all a bit predictable – take a guess who'll live and who'll die – the cute kids or the evil landlord? See! The one thing it does have though is a sort of humour – the critters have senses of humours and are cruel and some of this is amusing.

However the comedy is nowhere near the one it aspires to – Gremlins, and really the funniest bit is how silly the whole thing is. Needless to say the acting is poor – some people can't even be mauled convincingly. But it's interesting to see DiCaprio's debut, even if he looks about 9 years old!

Really this is a bit of dumb fun that is daft and slightly shoddy. It's may just pass the time but there are much better horror/comedies out there if you want them.
