The feeding frenzy begins on July 23 with the release of Critters Attack!, the newest entry in the delightfully bloody, live-action, horror/sci-fi/comedy film series that was launched back in 1986 with star Dee Wallace (The Hills Have Eyes). It arrives nearly three months before its TV premiere on SYFY.

Wallace returns for a second round in this latest film, which follows 20-year-old Drea (Tashiana Washington) as she takes the kids she’s babysitting for on a hike, unaware that mysterious alien critters have crash-landed and started devouring every living thing they encounter!

While being tracked by the ravenous critters, Drea and the kids encounter an adorable, seemingly harmless female critter named Bianca, an exiled royal fleeing the critter race. As the critters converge on the college campus, Drea and the kids, who are now inextricably linked to Bianca, rush to head them off. Will Drea discover her inner badass, and will it be enough to stop the critter onslaught? And is the critter princess as innocent as she seems?

Critters Attack! is written by Scott Lobdell (Happy Death Day) and directed by Bobby Miller (The Cleanse). Rupert Harvey and Barry Opper from the original film franchise are on as producers.

Bonus features on the discs and digital releases include the following:

  • Entineering Gore; Designing Critters (featurette)
  • Critters: An Out-of-this-World Experience (featurette)
  • The Critter Ball (featurette)
  • Scene Specific Commentary with Director Bobby Miller and a Critter
