Movie Review: Grabbers

Directed by: Jon Wright, 2012

Pros: decent looking monster, fun characters, humorous


When workaholic Garda Lisa Nolan comes to an island off the cost of Ireland to cover for a co-worker, she’s not expecting her new partner to show up drunk.  Nor is she expecting alien sea monsters to attack.  Luckily, the blood drinking creatures don’t like alcohol in their meals.

Leaving aside the origin of the monsters, this is a fun, entertaining horror film that will remind you of Tremors.  The special effects are pretty good, the acting is excellent, and the characters fun.  While I didn’t find it laugh out loud funny, there are some humorous bits.  It’s a decent time waster.
