Storyline

Peace officer Lisa Nolan comes to Erin 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.

This whimsical tale of alien creatures attacking the inhabitants of a small Irish village hits the bulls eye in providing laughs and scares in generous quantities. Grabbers is a prime example that with a witty script, taught direction and excellent ensemble playing, you don't need a huge budget to deliver a first rate comedy-horror picture. Grabbers has the same comedy-horror tone of Gremilns, to name just one example, combined with the atmosphere of Local Hero.

Grabbers could well end up on the midnight cult movie circuit whilst Richard Coyle, its male lead, is destined for bigger things. A thoroughly enjoyable movie which is heartily recommended.
