Critters Attack! is a horror-comedy film released in 2019 that revolves around the story of an ordinary babysitter, Drea (Tashiana Washington), and her wards young Jake (Jack Fulton) and his sister Trissy (Ava Preston). The story takes place in the peaceful town of Groverton, which is immediately haunted by an invasion of small carnivorous creatures called Critters.

The creatures arrived in Groverton in search of a new home and quickly started to wreak havoc on the peaceful town. These carnivorous creatures are not only small in size but also possess extraordinary strength and ferocious fighting abilities that could scare anyone away. But luckily, Drea and the two children are not the only ones fighting against these monsters. They team up with the town drunk and a friendly store owner, who is an expert in everything related to these creatures.

As the story progresses, the group finds themselves in the middle of a Critter attack, and they must use all of their wit and courage to survive. The Critters are everywhere they turn - in the park, at a carnival, and even in their home. The group must find a way to stop these monstrous creatures before they devour everything and everyone in their sight.

Throughout the movie, there are a lot of jump scares and tense moments that keep the audience on the edge of their seat. The film is rated PG-13, so the violence is not as brutal as in other horror movies, making it a perfect introductory film for young audiences that may not have watched horror movies before.

One of the best things about Critters Attack! is the humor. The film takes a lighthearted approach, balancing the horror elements with comedic moments that make the movie fun and enjoyable. The humor comes from both the characters and the creatures. The funny antics and witty comebacks of the human cast were hilarious and did not feel forced. The Critters, on the other hand, were a comedic highlight of the movie. Their appearance alone made them look like an abomination of the infamous Gremlins. However, their funny noises and movements will have the audience laughing out loud.

The acting in the movie is decent, with each actor portraying their characters well. Tashiana Washington as Drea was the standout performance; her ability to convey fear and courage was commendable. However, the children's acting was subpar, and it felt like they were mischievous rather than scared when faced with danger.

The special effects and makeup were fantastic, and it's impressive what they could achieve with a limited budget. The Critters looked convincing and menacing throughout the movie, and their design was spot-on. The film's low-budget effects could not be compared to other horror movies with big budgets and more advanced technology, but the filmmakers did the most with what they had.

In conclusion, Critters Attack! is a fun and enjoyable horror-comedy movie with a decent storyline, good acting, and special effects that could do with a bit more polish. It's funny, suspenseful, and has enough action to keep the audience entertained throughout. The movie is not too gory, making it an excellent entry point for young audiences or anyone that does not like horror movies that are too brutal or grotesque. So grab some popcorn and get ready to watch one of the best horror films of 2019.

Critters Attack! is a 2019 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 29 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.7.
