Storyline

Peace officer Lisa Nolan comes to Aran Island, Ireland, to take charge during a colleague's two-week holiday. Simultaneously, blood-thirsty, sea-dwelling aliens arrive at the quiet island to propagate. As dead whales wash up on shore and people start mysteriously disappearing, officers and a few locals slowly discover their peril along with one sure defense - high blood alcohol levels, which the aliens can't stomach. As a storm approaches, enabling hungry hatchlings access to the locals, an open bar kicks off a desperate bid for survival as inebriated police and friends stagger to remain cognizant long enough to thwart the alien invasion.

Standard monster horror movie, but well done, good humour and drunk Irishmen
6 September 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I will rate this higher than average because, well, it was a decent film. It brought everything we know an love in a monster film, but it didn't botch it up.

The plot is also pretty funny, without being completely ridiculous: a space alien that looks a lot like a mouth with many tentacles decides to make our sea its home, unfortunately for some of the local fauna and fishermen. Also, it drops near the shore of Ireland, unfortunately for the alcohol allergic blood sucking monster. Some people soon learn of the man eating monster and hatch out a plan: get p!ss drunk and fight the alien. Many funny moments follow.

The movie is alright, with a tasteful mix of standard monster movie recipe and cultural stereotyped comedy. Some of the people in the cast are known actors: Richard Coyle (Prince of Persia), Russell Tovey (Being Human), Ruth Bradley (Primeval). I liked it.
