Critters 2 (1988)

What this sequel lacks in originality and acting, it more than makes up for entertainment! The Crites are back, hatching from the eggs left over from last time, but luckily Brad Brown and the alien bounty hunters have returned to town in time to stop them. With a bigger budget, the creature FX have been vastly improved, allowing expanded physical capabilities that lend much more believability and personality to the creatures. The film also successfully recaptures the feel and humor of the original, with many returning characters and physical comedy instilled in it. Though the original is the better film, the sequel is slightly more enjoyable.

Rating: 7/10.
Entertainment: 8/10.
