Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Easter weekend is upon us folks, and what better way to celebrate than with one of the best and most underrated Easter horror movies, Critters 2 (WATCH IT HERE OWN IT HERE). Critters (WATCH IT HERE OWN IT HERE) hit theaters in 1986 and did surprisingly well. After its success at the box office and boom on VHS, a sequel was inevitable. Enter Mick Garris in his directorial debut with the fun, inventive, and Easter-themed sequel, Critters 2: The Main Course or just plainly, Critters 2.

Following the path of some of the best genre sequels, Critters 2 turns up the action, thrills and updates the Krites themselves into the adorable murderous porcupines you know and love today. As famous as the original Critters is, the Krites design and style the series is known for were developed and perfected in this sequel. It has a cult following but deserves a helluva lot more. On this Easter-themed episode of THE BLACK SHEEP, we dive into why Critters 2 is one of the best horror sequels no one talks about!

Critters 2 stars Don Keith Opper, Terrence Mann, Scott Grimes, Sam Anderson, Liane Curtis, and has the following synopsis:

Eggs of the small but voracious alien creatures called Crites are left behind on earth and, after hatching, set their appetites on the small farm town of Grover's Bend.

This episode of THE BLACK SHEEP is written, edited, and narrated by Lance Vlcek, produced by John Fallon, and Executive Produced by Berge Garabedian.
