Police 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.Written by
The Grabber in this movie shares many characteristics of the Facehugger from the well-known Alien (1979) franchise starring Sigourney Weaver. The movie contains many allusions to the Aliens (1986) series, including recreating the famous scene where Sigourney Weaver takes on the Alien Queen in a futuristic forklift with the famous line "Get away from her you b**ch!"

Garda Ciarán O'Shea:
What killed him, Jim?
Dr. Jim Gleeson:
The fact that he's just a head. You bring me someone with a head cold or a headache and I could do something, but you bring me just a head and you're taking the piss. Jesus, they could bury him in a shoe box.
Garda Lisa Nolan:
Doctor, we need to know.
Dr. Jim Gleeson:
He was mauled in some way by some... animal or... something. I dunno. A tiger?

Aliens invade an Island in um...Ireland, the only way to survive is get drunk...book me a flight!!!
I had slightly low expectations, hopefully mildly amused at best, but how wrong was I.
Utterly engaging characters, dry,witty dialogue, a real fun B-Movie horror flick so reminiscent of such 'classics' as Tremors and Deep Rising, with even a knowing nod to the drunken exploits of Gremlins towards the end.The special effects are on the cheap side but this is a tiny criticism.
Great Balti & a Beer Saturday night (or any night) entertainment.
