I can't imagine why this movie isn't better known. It should have a huge cult, like "Tremors." In fact, it would make a terrific double bill with "Tremors." The acting is great, the comedy is appropriate, it's scary when it needs to be, the creature effects are terrific, and there aren't any...
good movie17 April 2014
For all its clichés and low-budget, Grabbers is quite enjoyable, and managed to make me laugh out loud several times.
think you need to be irish20 January 2013
not an overall terrible movie but very laid back and little bit slow, maybe would have been better about 5 years ago but for todays si fi just diddn't quite do it for me
to be sure, to be sure...19 January 2013
an irish version of "shaun of the dead" with aliens instead.
good characterisation, no really ridiculous inconsistencies except for...where are the children?
all in all, worth watching if you got some spare time and want to expand your library.

Are you Irish? Of Irish descent? Or do you generally like Ireland? Then you might like this movie.
Be prepared for some lovely nature shots from around the countryside near the seashore. Be prepared for some people speaking in a teriffic Western Irish accent.
This is a good entertaining creature feature. It clearly owes a lot to Tremors but it's not a knock-off and I can't imagine it disappointing anyone. The imvb number is way too low. Personally, I'd put this one in the upper 7's range.

I have to agree, I didn't expect to like it and thought the rating must be wrong, but it was very good.
Surprisingly Good Movie! Give it a go!12 December 2012
I love SyFy monster movies and some movies can be worse then high school projects. But Grabbers is funny, has fair acting and a good plot. Perfet for a rainy day!
