We though so, but we weren’t 100% certain–until now.

In addition to Shudder’s series Critters: The New Binge, there’s a new feature film coming down the pike. Critters Attack! is a reboot of the Critters franchise (launched in 1986) and features OG Scream Queen Dee Wallace (who played Helen Brown in the original) as “Aunt Dee”.

Today, we’ve got a trailer (embedded at the top of the article) and synopsis (below) to share; and while we don’t have an exact release date, we’re being told to look for Critters Attack! on Digital and Blu-ray/DVD sometime this Summer.

Dee Wallace (E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial), who starred in the original Critters as Helen Brown, will sink her teeth into the franchise for a second time in the mysterious role of Aunt Dee. Inspired by the film series from the ’80s and ’90s, Critters follows 20-year-old Drea (Tashiana Washington), who reluctantly takes a job babysitting for a professor of a college she hopes to attend. Struggling to entertain the professor’s children Trissy (Ava Preston) and Jake (Jack Fulton), along with her own little brother Phillip (Jaeden Noel), Drea takes them on a hike, unaware that mysterious alien critters have crash-landed and started devouring every living thing they encounter. Coming This Summer to Digital and Blu-ray.
