Welcome to the inaugural episode of The Liberal Dead's Critters Retrospective Podcast Series! In this episode, Jeff (@Jeff_FOTD) is joined by co-hosts James (@DrJimmyTerror) and Shawn (@TheLiberalDead) to tackle the franchise's initial installment, 1986's Critters.
How many times is "Power Of The Night" actually played in the movie? What the hell is up with Billy Zane's ponytail? Was Shawn deprived of a childhood? Is the movie just a rip-off of Gremlins?
Find the answers to these questions here - along with talk of the film's production history, themes and plot points, reception, and its place in the franchise. Most importantly, the guys give you a straight shot on whether or not it's worth your time.
Come for the discussion, but stick around for the Johnny Steele songs and ridiculous outtakes that follow.
iTunes listeners: Please take a moment to leave us a rating/review, and we will share it on an upcoming podcast!
And, as always, if you want to drop us a line to let us know what you think of Critters, or you just want to give us feedback on the podcast in general, please send an email to podcast (at) liberaldead (dot) com.
