Revealing mistake: After the bounty hunter, who changes three times throughout the movie, changes into the Reverend, he is in front of someone else who is a stand-in for the real Reverend but is obviously not.

Visible crew/equipment: At the end when Harv leaves, you can see a crew member reflected in his car window. It's not any of the Brown family members, because they are walking to their house. (01:21:20)

Audio problem: When Brad puts his plate on the floor, the cat comes out from under the bed. You can hear it meow, but it's mouth doesn't move. (00:22:50)

Continuity mistake: After Charlie shoots April in the ass with the slingshot, she immediately turns around to see who did it. Charlie is holding it as he says "Oops" and Brad takes it from him, all the while April is turned completely towards them. Couldn't she see it was Charlie and not Brad?

Deliberate mistake: The explosion of the ship at the end of the film is actually another angle of the explosion of the house from a few seconds earlier. The craft's explosion is much too small for what is shown in the film.

Other mistake: When the family is leaving and the door is shut you see the floor lock (common in older homes) on the door engage. When Brad goes back in through the window you see him run down the stairs. He gets to the door and unlocks 2 locks on the upper part of the door but not the floor lock.

Ug: We're here for the Crites.

Trivia: While the film is often viewed as a knock-off the movie "Gremlins," the script had actually been written some time before "Gremlins" came out, based on a nightmare the writer had when he was child about being chased by tiny creatures.

Question: The movie's called Critters yet they're referred to as Krites. Which name is correct and why the two names?

Answer: "Krite" is the official name of the creatures, but "critters" is an apt explanation of what they are. The audience would have no idea what a "krite" is, because it's a made up word. So the title of the movie is "Critters" because they are disgusting little creatures. The fact that "krite" sounds similar to "critter" is wordplay on the part of the film-makers.
