Critters are fuzzy tubby aliens whose appetite never seems to be satisfied. Causing an explosion during a transfer from the asteroid-based prisons they are kept in, they escape and land in a rural USA town. Chased by intergalactic bounty hunters they attack a farm. The story was inspired by the Kelly-Hospkinsville encounter, where a family of farmers had allegedly been attacked by aliens.
