Poor Bastards of Cinema: Critters 2 (Part 2)

This 80s classic brings us one more tale of a man whose only crime was being a nameless character in a horror film.

In the film's climax, the eponymous creatures morph into one solid ball of death and roll down the street in pursuit of our heroes.  As they reach a certain point, a crowd is rushing to help them.  When they see the giant fur ball, however, they all book it out of there.  One man is not so lucky and ends up being killed by the thing, his whole body being eaten in one roll-over.

Of course, the whole point of this is to show us that the thing would kill you, as if a 30-foot ball made out of voracious predators would do anything else!

Next up, a man is violently-killed in another dimension for the crime of doing his job.  As a bonus, this film is a comedy!  Stay tuned...
