Yesterday, we were able to confirm the long-swirling rumors that there was a new Critters movie in the works with franchise staple Dee Wallace returning in a mystery role. It happened when a trailer for Critters Attack!, exclusively released by IGN, took the internet by storm. While we definitely took notice, the only thing we had in terms of a release date was “Coming Soon”–until today!

We can now report that Critters Attack! will arrive on Blu-ray/DVD and Digital beginning July 23rd via Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The release will be followed by a TV premiere on Syfy sometime this October.
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.
