about

A re-envisioning of the events contained withing the Critters film franchise. This story follows the path of Charlie McFadden, the only recurring character in all of the films and the tale's only true protagonist. This concept follows Charlie as he develops from a bumbling, social pariah to the galaxies only hope. As he battles the Crites, Charlie not only becomes a space Bounty Hunter, he eventually becomes the Ultimate Killer, and the Crites only real threat.

In the films, Charlie was expertly played by Don Keith Opper. He served as a great source of inspiration for this work. It is his portrayal of Charlie McFadden that provides the real over-arching story within the Critters films.

Track Name: I'm A Bounty Hunter
The people in this town cast their stones, they think I'm quite insane
But the day the creatures arrived was not a figment in my brain
The boy, my only friend, he put his trust in me
He believed in what I knew, what the others could not see

The hunters came down in their ship, the changers chose my face
I too would change that day, a defender of my race

I am more than just a lost soul I have forged a new path
I am now a Bounty Hunter, a bringer of death

I know bombs, the a lay of the land
I will not abide the loss of my fiends

Ug: We've traveled across the galaxy, but our numbers are few,
Will you join our ranks?
Our resources dwindle but, not our desire
Not one Crite left alive!

All the while the creatures multiply
will this town become food for the Crites?!

I know bombs, the a lay of the land
I will not abide the loss of my fiends

Ug: We bring superior weaponry, but you have something we need
Will you join our ranks?
The work we complete tonight saves more than just this town.
Not one Crite left alive!

All the while the creatures multiply
will this town become food for the Crites?!

Stalking through the night
eliminate all we find
follow trails of blood
for the family I fight

I was not prepared
enemies joined to one
they must not escape
if Earth is to survive

Ug: We've traveled across the galaxy, but our numbers are few,
Will you join our ranks?
Our resources dwindle but, not our desire
Not one Crite left alive!

I know bombs, the a lay of the land
I will not abide the loss of my fiends

The people in this town cast their stones, but it was I who saved their lives.
They will know I'm a Bounty Hunter as I take into the skies.
Track Name: The Town that Wouldn't Die
Another successful hunt deep in space when we receive a call
the Crites once again threaten Earth but I wish not to return
Ug: Fear not my friend
My friend has come back to his home distrusted by the town
This young man can not hope to win on his own. We must lend him aid.

blood is being spilled once again
nothing can stop them as they multiply
I am called to hunt once again
in this town that wouldn't die

together we lead these people to fight. No jaws can claim the survivor's heart
With fire and blade we reclaim what's ours. The bond we share is what makes us strong.

blood is being spilled once again
nothing can stop them as they multiply
I am called to hunt once again
in this town that wouldn't die

Ug: My partner is now lost to me, a warrior of the highest grade.
Despair taking over me. I reject this war,I give up my face!

I know I can end this hunt here on Earth if I must sacrifice myself
All of our other plans have failed. Without hope, these people stand no chance.
The final blow yet shall be mine, I fly my ship to it's doom!

Ug: To honor your bravery I wear your face
No better hunter has lived!
I'll continue to track and kill when I'm called
Exalting the life that you give.
Track Name: From One, Many
I wonder through the woods, again on the hunt
Alone with no help from my friends
I left my role as protector of the town to continue the search for the Crites
CRITES!!!

I happen upon some children, to them I seem quite mad
I warn them to always be on guard
By the time I speak these words the attack has begun
Unknowingly they have fallen into total peril

Having followed these people back to their homes
The Crites now unleash their hunger
If I do not arrive in time
These families will be lost

From one, Many
Doom multiplied
Many, from one
Death with the reddest eyes!

The Crites continue their lust for blood
Others in the building fall
The survivors scramble to the roof
To imagined safety they climb

From one, Many
Doom multiplied
Many, from one
Death with the reddest eyes!

Ever higher, they ascend. Clinging like rats to the beams
Continuing to search a way out above, escaping the flames, smoke, & teeth
The Critters, they laugh and toy with their prey. Enjoying the fear & the meat
Their chaos is total, destroying the homes of the people they eat

I arrive with weapons made by hand, moving from one room to the next
I have killed many Crites before, I mean to kill the rest
Through fire & teeth I maintain my edge, eradicating the nest
As a Bounty Hunter, none can deny, I remain the best!

A pod crashes down from over me,
Ug: I request the two eggs that survive!
Reluctantly, I relinquish the spawn
But now I'm trapped inside!
Track Name: The Ultimate Killer
Nearly fifty years have passed as I awaken on a scavenger ship
I am stricken with fear to see I have not aged a day

Trying to recall the events that lead me to the desolation of space
Ug would not allow me to kill the last surviving Crites

This crew is untrustworthy, they can perceive no threat
Seeking only to sell the Crites to Tetra, the man I once knew as Ug!

Ug: Hand me the eggs!
Charlie: What happened to you?!
Ug: Do as I say!
Charlie: We hunted as one.
Ug: You can not escape!
Charlie: Then neither will you!

Ug: I'm here for the Crites!
Charlie: They're killing again!
Ug: No matter to me.
Charlie: This was our job!
Ug: Things change.
Charlie: Only you have...

Charlie: You have been bought.
Ug: You have grown weak.
Charlie: Your mission is lost.
Ug: It's lost to the past.
Charlie: You were my friend!
Ug: You're in my way!

Charlie: I don't understand.
Ug: Real power, I have.
Charlie: So, now I'll hunt you.
Ug: You don't have the strength.
Charlie: Things change...
Ug: PUT DOWN THAT GUN!

Ug is dead
We must evacuate
Reactor critical
Take off now.

TAKE OFF NOW!!
