Horrorfest 2013 Presents: Critters 2: The Main Course (1988, Mick Garris)
Sometimes a goofy horror movie is just what you need. Critters 2 fits that bill, managing to be even more outrageous than the first film. Even though it takes a while to get going as it fills us in on what’s taken place since the Browns last had to fight off the Crites on their farm. Young Brad has returned to see his grandma and the townspeople are not happy to see him.
They would rather forget about what happened, right up to even voting in a new sheriff. When the Crites return they are forced to turn to the old sheriff and even Brad to try and survive. In wonderfully entertaining fashion of course. Like many 80s films its created to be goofy fun although for the sequel Mick Garris and company decided to up the amount of death and gore.
Not to mention a moment that is hilarious and crazy. I don’t want to spoil it but when you end up seeing it you will either laugh in amazement or groan. I did the former for the record because I like a movie like this one that manages to combine dark humor with monster moments. Even though its decent at best as far as many horror sequels go this one is better than most. Now to view the rest of the series.
