Outer Space Ne'er Do Wells CRITTERS Coming To Television
What the hell is a "go90?" The short answer is Verizon's very own channel full of original content. While you may be scratching your head and wondering why this even exists, well, we now have an answer. That is Critters: A New Binge.
Not too much has been revealed about the new project but we do know that it will focus on the alien mischief makers returning to Earth and landing in good ol' Burbank, CA. They're on a mission, to find one of their own who was left behind years ago, and furry space critter antics are sure to ensure. Original producers Barry Opper and Rupert Harvey will return alongside Zombeavers scribes Al and Jon Kaplan. Sometimes Critters gets brushed off but the series actually has a lot of prestige with creature effects from the Chiodo Brothers, director Mick Garris helming one entry into the series, and having featured future stars such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Billy Zane.
With the recent trips down nostalgia lane, it may be time to revisit the evil Gremlins analogues. With such fun screenwriters attached to the project, and a non-cable channel, we might get some truly R rated fun. Plus. We sure hope these guys come back.
