Back For Seconds!
It's been two
years since the fiendish Critters first terrorized the town of
Grovers Bend and sent the Brown family packing. But the
"boy who called Critter," Brad Brown (Scott Grimes),
is back...and just in time. Krite eggs have been hatching lethal
litters and the blood-thirsty hairballs are eager to partake in
their favorite pastime - eating. In no time, Critter eggs are
popping open everywhere - a field full of livestock becomes a
gigantic feeding ground, and local residents are disappearing by
the mouthful. Fortunately, three bounty hunters from space, Ug,
Lee and Charlie, are flying back to eradicate the problem. But
can they wipe out the Critters before Grovers Bend is erased
from the map. With outstanding special effects, Critters 2 - The
Main Course is bigger and better - and sure to satisfy
everyone's appetite for action, thrills and horror!
Barry takes over the role of the grumpy, cussing retired sheriff
originally played by M. Emmet Walsh in the first episode of the
three part saga. Now that the Critters are back, Harv is asked
by Brad (Scott Grimes) to help him exterminate the
furry aliens. Harv is still angry for being voted out by the
people of Grovers Bend and turns the request down. Later,
knowing the town needs his leadership and impressive skills with
guns, Harv gives in and makes a timely comeback.

May 17, 1988: "Local moviegoers might want to check out
"Critters 2" because Barry Corbin, who has been
honored with a plaque on Lubbock's Walk Of Fame tries to lighten
the mood with an incredible hammy performance as the former
sheriff. Corbin first appears in a pair of briefs, later nails a
bunch of Krites like an old-fashioned gunfighter and finally
expresses dismay by drawling: "Them
man-eatin' dust mops got us roped up tighter than a bull."
