Hey, that’s not right shooting a rearview mirror like that. Now Bob has to turn around to see who’s chasing him! You have it easier. Just see how many of these movies you can identify with a quick mirror check.

These are all pics of people looking in their rear-view mirrors. What do I win? Think number 5 is Lep in Space….?
This is the technology we had to use before rear cameras. I’m afraid you don’t win a set of steak knives or a copy of our home game. I’ll look around the house and see if I can find something recyclable to stand in as a prize . . .
Could I win a boxed set of Critters movies or are they in use?
They don’t allow us to ship Critters, or Critters movies, out of country. It’s a quarantine thing. You know what happens when they get loose.
Well, I dodn’t, because I’ve never seen a critters film. I take it they get up to mischief? I had previously thought they were fictional creatures, but your comment suggests that they’re a real problem in your neighbourhood?
Think Gremlins, only rounder. Originating in outer space, they first erupted in the U.S. but have since migrated north. You don’t want to let them into Scotland.
So actually a real thing? Like a haggis?
Haggis is a highland myth. Critters are real-ish.
And your library stock this boxed-set to help critter farmers in the area? Are they livestock, vermin, what?
You don’t farm Critters. They farm you!
Yikes. This has happened to you or people you know?
I’ve seen it happen in movies. As will be chronicled in the coming days.
Wow, so these are documentaries, and a grim warning of something happening soon?
They sort of function as public service announcements, yes.
This is going to break the internet, when do the reviews begin?
Tomorrow. Fraggle seemed keen on hearing more.
I am agog.
I’m taking a month off work to read this scholarly work. Should be a cracker!
A veritable cracker of Critters is expected by us all.
It’s gonna be wild! Cancelling all other plans for this…
Get the haggis and ironbru at the ready!
I’m having huge video screens installed so I can savour every word.
A liitle OTT perhaps.
Not for Alex’s thoughts on FIVE Critters movies, plus a tv show. This is going to blow our tiny minds. And he says that the Critters are real too!
I will not be doing Critters Attack! Or the TV show, despite it being filmed in Canada. Just remember there are no refunds.
Oh, FFS! What’s the point then? Why waste our time if it’s not a complete overview? Fake news! fraggle was all excited too!
I repeat: there will be no refunds! Especially for those who didn’t pay!
As a taxpayer, I feel I have contributed to your library, and therefore demand a refund.
Your taxes only support your local library, and the last time I was in there they only had copies of Trainspotting, Local Hero, and Whisky Galore! on VHS.
When were you in my local library?
You’d think it would have been some time ago, given the number of VHS tapes they had on the shelves. But it was just last week.
My library have nothing but the most up to date DVD’s, and no Lep or Critters films, funnily enough….
Those aren’t DVDs. They’re laser discs.
Actually, come to think of it I think they were vinyl . . .
8mm reels of highlights?
Saw those too. They were right next to the 8-tracks. Actually, it was a pretty groovy library. Disappointing about the franchise horror collections though.
Why are you not doing the complete Critters? What’s holding you back?
*sigh* I’ll look into it.
We DEMAND the whole story! No critter left unturned. The eyes of the world are watching!
Well, Scotland anyway. And some place in the north of England.
Fraggleland, or Fraggle Rock I think is the proper title.
Well they have to be real or how else would they be in a movie silly!? 🙄
I know, but there’s special effects too; I’m sure Alex will point out which ones are real or not!
Of course he will he’s a consummate professional.
I can never tell which critters are real….
have you seen some already then?
There’s some in our loft, and there’s scratching sounds in the walls that I think must be critters. They have pointed teeth.
More likely to be rats or mice. Alex said they can’t get out because of quarantine. Mind you, the French can be sneaky so you never know….
Critters do what they want, they come from space…
French in general.
It is a tetralogy! But each movie does feature a cracker of Critters.
Excellent, I am a triple gog.
I thought 18 might, and this is a shaky might, be Atomic Blonde. That’s all I got.
That’s right! Charlize was rocking a dramatic wig in that one.
