Synopsis: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?
First, let us talk about Joey Morgan for a second, Morgan's break out role was in A Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse. This Chicago native knocks it out of the park as he is in full control and kicking ass. Of course, his charter is an overweight teen just trying to get through his day and impress the love of his life played by Stephi Chin-Salvo. Chin-Salvo is a welcomed fresh face that really helps bring this Binge worthy show to the top. We also get a few good cameos with Gilbert Gottfried and Thomas Lennon to name a few.
Critters A New Binge try's hard to capture that early '80s fun but in some ways hurts it as well. I feel like the show tried to blend the 80s feel with a current decade style in terms of looks. What I mean by that I guess for example the green screen and space scene are fine but looking more like today's comic style of say Sharknado. And I'm ok with that, add in the goofy look of the puppets and you have pure gold! Smoother this bad boy in cheese wiz and enjoy! What the hell critics loosen up I get that you were born in the '90s and missed out on some of the greatest yet dumbest movies of all time that we happen to call Cult Classics (Toxic Advenger anyone?). This is like watching one of those movies that somebody found in their grandpa's basement that we all forgot about. Grrr, I like Critters A New Binge and you should too dam it.
Look this is silly fun and never takes itself to serious just like the '80s! It's low on gore so in many ways its an entry level kids ride as well. This it’s not going to be for everyone, but for those accustomed to New Binge’s brand of campy humor it makes for a perfectly mindless 74 minutes of cheesy comedy. Critters a new binge seems to be evenly split between “love it” and “hate it.” amongst fans this fan LOVES IT! Bring on more and here is to Dee Wallace returning to her role as the mom in the 1986 movie for SyFy movie later this year!
