Critters Attack (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

Critters Attack (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Anyone that know’s me knows I have a fondness for all thing s 80’s horror.  Especially cheaply made horror franchises… and they’d not get any cheaper than Critters Attack, the latest in the very long running (and long dormant) Critters franchise.  Yup the nasty Crites return to Earth to… well kill people… but this time there’s a new Critter and… well who cares right? Simply put if you have never seen a Critters film this probably isn’t your jumping off point as there is little new or fresh here.  But for those that have it’s more of the same… it’s silly, cheap and fun, passing the time with its high kill rate and short run time.   Just don’t expect an Academy Award winner here…

Best Bit: Critters ball!

Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell is the 6th film in the popular and endearing Tremors franchise and once again sees the return of Michael Gross as Burt Gummer once again fighting those pesky Garboids.  This time in the Canadian artic.  Hmmm.  Okay so by this point you kinda know what you are going to get with a Tremors films – low budget, silly, OTT and perfunctory.  And Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell delivers on those low expectations.  It’s not terrible by any stretch but it does little new.  So passes the time for sure but little else.

Best Bit: Capturing a graboid.

Tremors 5 Bloodlines – A Quick Capsule Review (Revisited)

Tremors 5 Bloodlines – A Quick Capsule Review (Revisited)

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Okay so if you are new to the Tremors film this probably ISN’T the place to start, but Tremors 5 is a fun return to form after the somewhat lacking Tremors 4.  Okay it still feels super cheap but i’ve always had somewhat of a soft spot for these silly creature features. So if your idea of fun is underground worms killing people on a low budget there’s few films that do it better.  Fans will love it.

Best Bit: Hell – Ass Blasters always make me laugh!

Phil’s Top 5… Monster Movies!

Phil’s Top 5… Monster Movies!

Other Cr*p Top 5

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: Monster Movies!


Close but no cigar: King Kong (1933), Godzilla (1954), Cloverfiled, Troll Hunter, Lake Placid

5 – Tremors
Okay so not on the same par as many here, but Tremors was the monster movie done on a budget with a splatter of humour and a dollop of Kevin Bacon.  And it works.  Full of heart and charm, Tremors remains a gem of a movie.

4 – The Fly
Cronenberg does body horror better than most, and here Jeff Goldblum slowly turns into the horrific brundlefly after an scientific mix up.  It’s scary, it’s brutal, it’s brilliant.

3 – Alien
Alien is the monster movie set in space.  The unstoppable killer born from an egg, hatched in a chest and then released on an unarmed and (mostly) unsuspecting crew. And it’s good.  Really good.

2 – Jaws
Jaws was the perfect example of necessity being the mother of invention. Had everything gone to plan we’d have seen much more of Bruce the shark.  As it was the fault animatronics caused Spielberg to get creative and a legend was born.

1 – The Thing
Carpenter’s horror remake of sorts was a commercial flop on its release. But years later it’s not only considered a cult favourite but by many one of the best horror monster films of all time. Even today, years later, its almost perfect.
