Hellbent on eating anyone or anything that stands in their way, these space invaders make their way to the Brown farmhouse. There, they proceed to terrorize the Brown family, and matriarch Helen Brown (Dee Wallace) spends her time shrieking in horrified desperation.
Fortunately for all concerned, two bounty hunters from outerspace arrive, dressed from head to toe in brown leather and armed with what look to be telescopic bazookas. The leader of the two looks like a rock singer. The other bounty hunter cannot quite seem to make up his mind as to whom he wishes to look like. What follows on the heels of their arrival is sure to keep the viewer entertained.
We start off in space and the 'Krites' have just escaped from their maximum security prison. They steal a space ship and crash land on Earth. Poor Bastards!
The Krites look like a cross between a Porcupine and a Hedgehog, only with big teeth, and an appetite to match. They will eat anything, even humans. And so the fun begins.
The action takes place in a small American town, and mostly on a farm a good stretch away from the main town.
This is a very funny film, and maybe a little scary to youngsters, but they shouldn't be watching this anyway.
I highly recommend this film and it's sequel, which is even better.
