      Moira MacDonald Seattle Times Off to the pub! Rated: 3/4 Aug 1, 2013 Full Review Ian Buckwalter NPR Wright checks off the expected genre boxes with the gleeful mischief of a gremlin trashing a plane engine. Rated: 6/10 Jul 26, 2013 Full Review Jessica Kiang The Playlist Perfect fodder for a late-night audience, UK/Irish co-production Grabbers, directed by Jon Wright, is a fun ride, and while it doesn't reinvent the "Tremors" and Slither modern-b-movie wheel, it adds a few neat touches to that formula. Rated: B Jul 19, 2013 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins Drinking and acting stupid are activities better suited for stereotypical teenagers. Rated: 4/10 Dec 3, 2020 Full Review Nicholas Bell Intentionally goofy, and drearily written, your reception of the film will all depend on how high you set your stakes. Aug 22, 2019 Full Review Daniel Green CineVue Wright's boisterous, boozy hybrid more than deserves to be placed alongside recent horror-com genre greats. Rated: 4/5 Feb 7, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Julie B Great cast, laughed so much. Highly recommend this movie! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/25/24 Full Review Susan Wilson E Funny smart creative and beautifully shot, this is one of my favorite movies. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/17/24 Full Review Logan D Human eating aliens who are vulnerable to alchohol make the mistake of landing in Ireland. Another humorous horror film from Ireland. There are some great special effects and certainly somewhere along the line Lovecraft influenced the design. Boys from County Hell is better but, still, Recommended Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/03/23 Full Review One of my favourite films, every time I watch it, I notice something new. Think 50's B movie, set on a beautiful Irish island full of your usual Irish characters... Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/13/23 Full Review Tod C I really enjoy this movie.If you focus on Paddy's dialogue it's hilarious.I don't see it as a horror movie even though it's a decent creature feature.The only drawback for me is the entire soundtrack sounds like I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause 😀 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member A competent and well done, refreshed take on the sea monster genre. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Read all reviews
