No where near as good as the first two films, but hey, it's got Leo DiCaprio!

"OK, folks, stick to the program here. I'm tired of reading reviews that doesn't even talk about the movie! Sure Leonardo was in it, but so what? Who gives a care? I know I don't. Critters 3 was an OK movie. Just not enough Critters in it. It's about these new critters that start to hatch and head for aN L.A. apartment building, where there they find "fresh meat". While Ammie and her brother stop at the gas station, they wonder off into the far field. But without watching the brother, he soon wonders off leaning over a short edge cliff, but a kid (Leo) stops him. As they all go off into the woods, a strange man erupts out of the ground, (Don Opper). And there, the critters hatch from under their van as soon as they arrive at the apartment buliding. Charlie McFaddin must help find the critters and help the family before the Krites get to them. Stellar movie, just not enough Critter action in it."

"I LOVE CRITTERS 3. IT'S ONE OF THE BEST OF THE SERIES. I OWN ALL THE CRITTERS MOVIES. I WISH THEY WHEREON DVD. I LIKE THE LITTLE FUR BALLS. MY FRIENDS ALSO THINK THE CRITTERS MOVIES ARE GREAT. THIS MOVIE IS ABOUT CRITTERS RUNNING AROUND AN OLD APARTMENT BUILDING SCARING PEOPLE AND EATING SOME. I LIKE IT WHEN THE CRITTERS PLAY IN THE KITCHEN. I LIKE IT WHEN ONE OF THEM START EATTING A TIPPED OVER BOLW OF CHILLY. IT'S SO FUNNY. THE COPY I HAVE IS BROKEN SO I'M ORDERING A NEW ONE. THERE ARE 4 CRITTERS MOVIES. AND THEY ALL ROCK. SEE IT YOU'LL LIKE IT."
Critters 3 (1991)

"Director: Kristine Peterson
Cast: John Calvin, Aimee Brooks, Christian Cousins, Joseph Cousins, William Dennis Hunt, Nina Axelrod, Leonardo DiCaprio, Don Keith Opper.
Running Time: 86 minutes
Rated PG-13 for violence and mild language.
"Critters 3" starts on the open road as Clifford (John Calvin) his teenage daughter Annie (Aimee Brooks) & his young son Johnny are heading back home from a vacation. Suddenly the tyre on their van blows & they have to stop at a public rest area to fix it. While there Annie and Johnny meet a kid named Josh (Leonardo DiCaprio in his Hollywood debut) who in turn all run into Charlie McFadden (the films co-producer Don Keith Opper) from the previous two "Critters" films. Charlie tells them the story of the Krites and the town of Grovers Bend but they don't believe him, meanwhile back at the van a critter lays some eggs on it's underside, out of sight from everyone. Once Clifford has fixed the tyre the trio set off for their home, a run down urban tenement block in Los Angeles somewhere complete with Critter eggs along for the ride. Upon arrival the eggs hatch & the Critters head straight inside the tenement block quickly disposing of Frank (Geoffrey Blake), the caretaker. As the night draws on the few remaining residents, a fat woman named Rosalie (Diana Bellamy), a telephone repair woman Marsha (Katherine Cortez), an elderly couple Mr. (Bill Zuckert) & Mrs. Menges (Frances Bay) must come together with Clifford & his kids to fight the Critters. Josh also makes an appearance as his Stepfather (William Dennis Hunt) owns the building. But will the group be able to defeat the Critters & prevent themselves from becoming dinner?
Let's be honest, no one say to be shocked to discover this is a cheap little film that doesn't have too much going for it. The plot is the usual: people hunted by critters, this time in a building so it's like "Die Hard" with aliens. Sadly the action is poor, it's not really gorym and the critter attacks are always more funny than thrilling. There is no real excitement or tension and it's all a bit predictable The supposed comedy is nowhere near the one it aspires to (Joe Dante's "Gremlins") and really the funniest bit is how silly the whole thing is. Needless to say the acting is poor and some people can't even be mauled convincingly; however, it is interesting to see DiCaprio's debut, even if he looks about 9 years old! Overall, "Critters 3" is a ridiculous bit of dumb fun that is daft and slightly shoddy, not nearly living up to the previous two installments in the series. It may just pass the time but there are much better horror/comedies out there if you want them."
