Us VHS 1980’s era kids were blessed to have witnessed the beginning of a glorious Gremlins rip-off with the Critters franchise. Cute little furry carnivorous aliens take over a small town and only the local small town boy and alien bounty hunters can save the planet. Well now Shudder is behind a brand new series that is exclusive to their streaming service.
“Critters: A New Binge is a comedy-horror Shudder exclusive series that picks up the tale of the Critters – hairy, carnivorous, insatiable aliens – from the beloved 1980s film franchise. Pursued by intergalactic bounty hunters, the Critters return to Earth on a secret mission and encounter Christopher, a lovelorn high-schooler, his best friend Charlie, his crush Dana, and his mom Veronica – whose past will come back to bite them. Who will survive? And who will be eaten?“
Check out the trailer and remember to KILL THE CRITE! The series premiere March 21.
