Grabbers

(2012)***1/2

Since this has been reviewed already I will spare you the long synopsis. Basically an alien sea creature is brought back to a remote Irish isle where the inhabitants discover the only way they can remain safe to fight it is to be completely inebriated. They gather at the local pub and tank up while they figure out a plan to fight the alien.

In the fashion of Attack the Block and The World's End, Grabbers mixes the right cocktail of humor and danger to make it a really fun film to watch.

Yeah, this one's a winner. Among other things I liked the way the main character's raging alcoholism was bluntly and honestly portrayed (although maybe he gets over it a little quickly).
