Trivia

Terrence Mann's appearance as Ug is credited in the movie's end credits before he has even appeared in the movie. He only makes a short appearance in a scene running during the end credits, which ties the actions of this movie with the sequel Critters 4 (1992). See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 4 mins) Notice when Annie is shielding herself with the sign that reads "Outa Order" from the Critters shooting their spines at her. Charlie comes in and blows one of the Critters away causing its green goo blood to spray all over the sign. In the next scene Annie is shown holding the sign but now it's totally clean. See more »

Quotes

Annie: Hi.
Josh: Hi.
Annie: How are you?
Josh: I'm fine. So... uh... how about getting together sometime and doing something normal?
Annie: Normal like a movie?
Josh: Yeah.

the third installment was still pretty good
19 May 2013 | by kandrakoleSee all my reviews

The effects were still great, the acting worked, and I liked the characters... but it was missing something.I don't know what but it was. I still recommend it of course and I decently enjoyed it. Critters 3 was not as much horror and more funny but it still worked. The critter effects have slightly changed but still basically the same. The critters are now more slimy and darker in color. It was great to see Charlie return again Leonardo DiCaprio did a great job in his role as Josh. Having a critter main protagonist was interesting and fun, and I liked the development in the other critter's characters also. It was very slightly off beat but fun to watch and entertaining. To sum it all up it was not as good as #2 but stayed true to the original.
