"A near-irresistible Friday-night-out monster picture in the tradition of Lake Placid or Tremors, with a boozy Irish charm that makes it a distinctive addition to the catalogue of alien invasions."
- Kim Newman - Empire -
"Could Grabbers be the best alien invasion comedy ever? Very possibly."
- Sarah Dobbs - Den of Geek -


When an island off the coast of Ireland is invaded by bloodsucking aliens, the heroes discover that getting drunk is the only way to survive.
