Critters 3 (1991)

The Crites have returned, and this time they are taking over a downtown apartment building in the city! Now, the tenants must find a way to destroy the furious fur-balls once and for all along with the help of everyone's favorite intergalactic bounty hunter, Charlie (Don Opper from CRITTERS 1 and 2). CRITTERS 3 holds together perfectly with the same formula and light tone found in the previous two entries. The creature designs are as creepy as ever, this time differentiating a few of the Crites with battle scars to give them more character and personality. While the series has never been known for having huge body counts, there are a decent number of bloody deaths that keep the action steady. CRITTERS 3 is most often remembered for being one of the early film debuts of a young Leonardo DiCaprio, who appears as the son of the evil landlord. Though it may not require much thought to enjoy, this third film still makes for plenty of safe scares and silly monster fun.

Rating: 7/10.
