I reckon they get overlooked. Very fun monster flicks. Any fans here?

Love them. Been a long time since I sat down and watched them, but great movies indeed.

"We're here for the Crites."

I loved those films. The first one is a classic, the second was good. Third was good and the fourth was a good conclusion to the series. I'm going to get the four movie special. I think those movies were better than Gremlins and Munchies, Ghoulies were right up there with the Critters movies.

Fookin brilliant! Didn't think much of the 4th film. Critters 3 starred Leo Dicaprio in one of his early films.

Ghoulies were horrible if I remember correctly... or I might mixed them up with that softcore\horror Critters rip off... Can't remember what's the name of the title, but I think it's Full Moon production.

Critters was kind of exciting on first viewing but I've rewatched it twice and it's not impressive the more you see it. Just silly and really kind of boring. The music is blah. The family is blah. The humor is blah. The action is blah. There's not even violence. It's not creative or subversive. In fact, it's kinda old-fasioned. And not in the fun kind of way.

The sequel is more fast paced (which is good with a Gremlins rip-off), actually has some gore, a better sense of humor. The characters are still mostly boring. But, I consider this a superior film than the original.

Missed parts 3 & 4.

I'm a hard person to bore and I stay away from things that don't interest me anyway.

Some bad movies can never bore me... others on the other hand just annoy the hell out of me.

I usually prefer really bad movies that try to be very serious. Those are usually the funniest.... but in most cases when bad movies try to be bad, they just end up being annoying and really bad... which is the case in most Troma movies for the last few years.
