    San Francisco Chronicle

    Has a smart mix of things going for it, including a self-effacing sense of humor. show more

    Isn't tough to take as long as you've paid a matinee price. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    I can't say I was scared, but I wasn't bored. By way of full disclosure, Warner Bros. provided free popcorn at the screening. I gobbled up every greasy morsel. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    The movie's combination of unabashedly fun carnage, cool special effects, and tongue-in-cheek dialogue keeps the ball rolling (albeit at reduced speed), until the last of the titular terrors has bit the dust. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Neither particularly funny nor especially scary. But it's so cheerfully silly, you may just have fun with it anyway. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Has laughs, thrills, wit and scary monsters, and is one of those goofy movies like "Critters" that kids itself and gets away with it. show more

    Boston Globe

    Doesn't try to be anything it's not. It's happy being a funny, shoot-'em-up, run-for-your-life, green-guts monster movie. And as green-guts monster movies go, it's a beaut. show more

    Starts like a house afire and then suffers an imagination burnout. show more

    Jonathan Foreman New York Post

    Indeed, for all its jokiness, this isn't the film for anyone who suffers from even the mildest fear of ugly, scuttling, jumping creatures with spindly, furry legs that have a habit of hiding in your shoes. show more
