The film is about a sea-full of tentacled monsters who descend on an island off the coast of Ireland and start sucking the blood of the hapless locals. However, as luck would have it, these beastly parasites are allergic to the taste of alcohol. Therefore, all that needs doing to survive is getting out-of-your-face drunk. Of course, fighting back while plastered is actually quite hard!
Also, the film benefits from seeing the monsters (in the full) early on. In other similar monster-movies, you only get to see a tentacle here or there until the final scenes (normally to save on special effects), but here you see them `full frontal' from pretty early on.
Most of the characters are hardly developed, but if they're funny then we can forgive that.
If you're a fan of such cinema greats (!) as `Deep Rising' then this is in the same cheeky little league of its own.
Set in Ireland `Grabbers' is an alien invasion movie that has the residents of a sleepy village being attacked by flesh eating monster aliens that are a cross between a jellyfish, some algae and loads of teeth. It is up to heavy drinking Garda Ciarán O'Sheaand and his straight laced partner Garda Lisa Nolan to save the day. Who will be the most useful, the drunk or the strategist? You may just be surprised.
`Grabbers' is a film that revels in many stereotypes of both the horror genre and how Irish people are perceived. However, both are done in a very light-hearted fashion and invite you to enjoy yourself, rather than be put you off. Richard Coyle is excellent as the lead, but the rest of the cast are also very amusing, giving the film a heart and characters that you care about. The plot itself is straight forward, but that is no problem, especially when the special effects are extremely impressive for a film of this scale. When things need to be played straight director Jon Wright is not afraid to do so and he manages to balance horror and humour superbly. A great popcorn flick for lovers of gory comedy films.
Don't worry about it being set in the "small isolated town with the space monster" theme..
This movie is SO MUCH better than others I've seen that have been raved over - others have obvious plot devices, poor scripting and me shouting at the TV that "They wouldn't do THAT, you tosser script-writer!!". NOT THIS ONE!
This movie is worth watching. It has very likeable characters, a little stereotypical humour, lovely video work and the CGI is really good. With some of these movies they hide cheap-arse CGI with darkness and tiny amount of 'tentacle-from-the-bush' scenes - not this one, the monster is THERE, house sized, eating things! And it looks GOOD, a proper amount of money has been used on the CGI work.
The theme is fun too - having to stay drunk so you don't get eaten.. with the problem that recurrent drinkers often need more to get drunk. the girl gets drunk on what another bar client has for starters!
I'm not saying it's award winning (although I would vote for it in a top 10). If you don't already like this sort of movie, it won't change your mind.
If you DO like this theme (Tremors, Slither.. any sort of space-alien tentacle monster or genetic escapee) then you WILL enjoy this movie.
Pull up the foot stool, grab the bowl of popcorn/packet of crisps, grab a beer/wine/fizzy drink and just have a GOOD TIME!
The plot is a bit threadbare in parts, but it soon recovers and rolls on nicely to the set-piece finale. It must have been easy to round up a few extras for the pub scenes as everyone had to stay as drunk as possible in order to survive - a nice bit of self-deprecating Irish humour!
Well worth a watch, and a great excuse to crack open a bottle of whiskey just in case...
