Editorial Reviews

On Erin Island, an idyllic fishing village off the coast of Ireland, charming inebriate Ciaran O Shea (Richard Coyle, Pusher) is tasked with showing straight-laced police officer Lisa Nolan (Ruth Bradley, Primeval, In Her Skin) her new beat. Not that there s much to police, as most of the community s troubles are caused by O Shea himself. But strange doings are afoot: the crew of a fishing boat disappears, whales start appearing dead on the shore, and a local lobsterman catches a mysterious tentacled creature in his trap. Soon it becomes clear to O Shea and Nolan that there s something unnatural out there, and that it s hungry. So it s time to rally the villagers, arm the troops...and head to the pub.

Very fun movie.

The CGI alien monsters look a lot like the giant facehugger that brings down the engineer towards the end of Prometheus (2012).

I love silly cult-ish movies like this one.

I am constantly looking for new monster movies to watch, hopefully enjoy and then add to my movie collection. Unfortunately, more often than not, these films end up being comparable to a Syfy Channel movie of the week (in other words, it sucks). Thankfully, every once in awhile one comes along that stands out. Such is the case with the 2012 release of GRABBERS.

I first read about this film in HorrorHound Magazine, and though it was getting good feedback, the premise certainly could’ve gone either way. Blood-sucking, tentacled aliens invade the coast of Ireland where the locals’ only hope of survival lies in their ability to get drunk! So how good could this film actually be? REALLY good!!!

This horror-comedy is actually an Irish production and definitely stands way above any Syfy Channel original film. Fishermen accidentally catch an alien cephalopod in their lobster pots. They eventually realize that this species feeds off of the blood of humans (of course) but that if they have a strong alcohol content in their blood, it can hurt, and even kill, the alien menace. Obviously the aliens are not that smart if this is their weakness and they arrive in Ireland.

This movie has great characters, with great chemistry. The two leads, Ciarán O’Shea and Lisa Nolan, bring the whole thing together. They are both police officers, with Lisa covering for a vacationing officer. Ciarán, played by Richard Coyle is an alcoholic trying to quit and Lisa, played by Ruth Bradley, has never had a drop of alcohol in her life. This makes for a good plot twist as Ciarán quits drinking to impress Lisa and Lisa must get wasted to save the town.

The characters are all very likeable and they all put on a great performance of being drunk.

"Grabbers" is a ridiculously fun monster movie. It's in the vein of "Critters" or "Tremors," but with a more modern spin on it like "Slither," "Attack the Block," or even Bong Joon-ho's "The Host." There's just as much of an emphasis on comedy that there is on horror though like "Shaun of the Dead." It's refreshing to see a horror film of this caliber utilizing well executed CGI for its creature effects. It only adds to the film's long list of excellent features.

The film starts off simple with a meteor landing in the sea with its contents wreaking havoc on a fishing boat. You're introduced to O'Shea, his drinking problem, and his shocking ability to function with a hangover. You're also introduced to Lisa Nolan (Ruth Bradley), a strictly by-the-books police officer sent to help out the island. Lisa's evolution over the course of the film is extraordinary considering how uptight she is at first. She naturally loosens up once she begins drinking and is quite a hilarious drunk. The relationship that develops between O'Shea and Lisa is also something that slowly bubbles to the surface in a natural kind of way. Richard Coyle and Ruth Bradley share a scene in a car in the second half of the film that is genuinely touching.

Other elements in the film are just as impressive. Christian Henson's score for the film is noticeably superb. At the beginning of the film, there's this scene where Paddy Barrett (Lalor Roddy) walks onto the beach and the camera is directly behind them. It's early in the morning and it's a beautiful scene, but then the camera finally pans up and you're able to see what's lying on the beach. The score does this amazing job of faking you out. It has this incredible tone shift from completely happy and carefree to atmospheric horror that is astounding.

Very fun movie. It reminded me, more than once, of Shawn of the Dead. There's not much of a plot, but the characters are hilarious. Writing is good, but not consistent.
Most of the acting is good, with a few weak spots. The plot setup is done well -- just enough scenes to explain the movie monster and instill fear for the viewer to enjoy.
The climax is clever and makes sense. If you like Simon Pegg's funny stuff, this movie is very similar.

I love movies where I can see faraway places I'll never go. This film is set on an island area off Ireland's coast and featured likable people whose realness carries the film.

It's been a LONG TIME that I have watched a horror film where I cared so much for characters that I was terrified for their safety. Usually, I am so irritated by the selfishness, sarcasm, and general meanness of the characters that I am cheering when they die.

Not so in GRABBERS. I loved these characters and their fondness for one another. GRABBERS is like any other "desert island" film like NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD or TREMORS but what GRABBERS is missing is the "mean character" whose selfish motives endanger everyone. Just like in the film TREMORS, the characters in GRABBERS work together to defeat the monsters. Moreover, the characters in GRABBERS discover an interesting defense against the title boogers that I'll let you discover.

See this film and don't psychoanalyze it, don't look at it through a cultural lens, just watch it and enjoy the emotion and some of the coolest monsters I've seen in a while.
