The biggest issue with Grabbers is that it's more slick than squirmy. Aside from a few good low-fi gross-out scenes ... Grabbers has the look and style of a big-budget action epic, not a scrappy little indie-horror.
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.
Out of all the bad decisions you've drunkenly made, one viewing of Grabbers makes up for the lot of them. With or without beer goggles, Jon Wright's film is equally entertaining - and without any regrets the following morning!
This Irish/British horror-comedy deals with menacing tentacles of an extraterrestrial kind, with an inspired premise, appealing cast and mix of laughs and thrills ensuring it's destined for cult status.
