Critters

Trivia: The name of the town in the film is "Grover's Bend." This is a bit of a reference to the town of "Grover's Mill," which was the town where the aliens supposedly first landed in Orson Welles' infamous "War of the Worlds" broadcast.

Trivia: One of the Krites is biting the head off an "E.T." doll. Dee Wallace coincidentally co-starred in both "Critters" and "E.T." as the mother of each film's respective young protagonist.

TedStixon

Trivia: While the film is often viewed as a knock-off the movie "Gremlins," the script had actually been written some time before "Gremlins" came out, based on a nightmare the writer had when he was child about being chased by tiny creatures.

More quotes from Critters

Question: Why does Brad take the blame for Charlie for shooting April with the slingshot? If he tells dad that Charlie had done that, he would've told him it was an accident.

Trainman

Answer: Charlie had become a chronic drunk and the town considered him a crackpot with his claims about alien abductions being foretold through his dental work. Even though it was an accident, he could have been declared incompetent and a danger to himself and others; he possibly could have been involuntarily committed. Brad is protecting him.
