In addition to releasing a trailer for The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs series, Shudder has also released a trailer for Critters: A New Binge. The show is based on the ’80s horror movie franchise, and follows lots of little hairball aliens with intergalactic bounty hunters on their tails wreaking bloody havoc on humanity.
The series, as you’ll see, looks absolutely ridiculous. I mean…there’s a freakin’ Critter taking a smoke break. And of course, the infamous Critterball makes an appearance. But I don’t think fans would have it any other way.
Continue below for more info on Critters: A New Binge and to check out the trailer.
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?
The original Critters came out in 1986, and was one of my favorite horrors growing up. It’s been over 25 years now since the last movie was released, so it’s good to see the little buggers back in action.
The first season of Critters: A New Binge is set to arrive on Shudder on March 21st.
