Boston Globe

Doesn't try to be anything it's not. It's happy being a funny, shoot-'em-up, run-for-your-life, green-guts monster movie. And as green-guts monster movies go, it's a beaut.

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Steven Rea
The movie's combination of unabashedly fun carnage, cool special effects, and tongue-in-cheek dialogue keeps the ball rolling (albeit at reduced speed), until the last of the titular terrors has bit the dust.

Has a smart mix of things going for it, including a self-effacing sense of humor.

Has laughs, thrills, wit and scary monsters, and is one of those goofy movies like "Critters" that kids itself and gets away with it.

New York Daily News

By Elizabeth Weitzman
Neither particularly funny nor especially scary. But it's so cheerfully silly, you may just have fun with it anyway.

Entertainment Weekly

By Lisa Schwarzbaum
Like many of the worst pop-referential parodies of the post-''Scream'' era, this one stalls on laughs once the big joke has been established.
