‘It appears there are hundreds of hairy balls descending from the air!’
It’s been more than thirty years since Critters first hit the silver screen and they’ve continued to endure as one of the weirdest and most beloved horror monsters of our time among cult audiences. Now, the aliens are back to raise hell again in Critters: A New Binge, an eight-episode horror-comedy that will air on Shudder, a horror streaming network that I honestly didn’t know existed until this trailer dropped.
If you are one of the lucky ones to subscribe to Shudder, you’ll get to see all 8 episodes when the series drops on March 21st. Critters: A New Binge stars Joey Morgan, Stephi Chin-Salvo, Bzhaun Rohden, and Kirsten Robek star, with appearances from Gilbert Gottfried and Thomas Lennon.
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?
Coming to Shudder March 21.
