Monster Mash! continues over at Trailers from Hell, with director Mick Garris introducing his own "Critters 2."

Garris’ slapstick sci-fi opus is the second in a quartet of Critters movies that popped up in the wake of the success of Gremlins. In this installment the citizens of the unassuming town of Grover’s Bend, Kansas suffer yet another infestation of the preposterously toothy aliens and band together to snuff them out. Screenwriter David Twohy went on to pen 1993′s The Fugitive.
