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.

While writer Kevin Lehane was backpacking across the world and being bit by mosquitoes, he heard the urban legend that eating Marmite (a vitamin B rich yeast spread) prevents mosquito bites. Hearing that, he wondered whether mosquitoes also got hungover from drunk people's blood. The thought stayed with him until he returned home and wrote the script for Grabbers based on the premise 'get drunk to survive'. See more »
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.
