* In the second film, a few Crites get stuck in a vent, with the heroes in the room on the other side. Mostly safe, because they can't get into the room, right?

Added DiffLines:

* There's something terrifying about small creatures that can eat 20 times their weight, move very fast, jump high, are extremely strong for their size, and are highly aggressive. Also the fate of the Captain in the fourth movie where a baby Critter jumps in his mouth and bites at the back of his throat.
