It's been two years since the fiendish Critters first terrorised the town of Grovers Bend and sent the Brown family packing. But the "boy who called Critter", Brad Brown (Scott Grimes), is back...and just in time. Critter eggs have been hatching lethal litters and the bloodthirsty hairballs are eager to partake in their favourite pastime - eating. In no time, the eggs are popping open everywhere - a field full of livestock becomes a gigantic feeding ground, and local residents are disappearing by the mouthful. Fortunately, three bounty hunters from space, Ug, Lee and Charlie, are flying back to eradicate the problem. But can they wipe out the Critters before Grovers Bend is erased from the map?
