Stephen King's favorite filmmaker, Mick Garris, steps into the director's chair for this "Critters" sequel - and, appropriately enough, attempts to turn it into King material. There are a few swipes at the church and small town bullies, but the movie lacks the immediacy (and terror) of the first entry since the locals mostly stand around slack-jawed while the Critters roll through town like killer tumbleweeds.
