Little aliens invade a farming town in Nitehawk’s Country Brunchin’ presentation of CRITTERS. Includes a live pre-show musical serenade by The Brooklyn Bluegrass Collective!

When a band of hardened extraterrestrial criminals escapes from a maximum-security prison asteroid and steal an escape craft, the flesh-eating ETs unwittingly head to a small, unsuspecting planet–Earth–pursued by a pair of awesomely powerful, if unbelievably inept, bounty hunters. Now, it’s the humans against the very hungry, man-eating aliens in a battle for the future of mankind!  

Also part of Nitehawk’s March LIL’ TERRORS series.
