DVD & Blu-ray review: Grabbers (15) Jon Wright (94mins)


It's never a great sign when the DVD and cinema releases are a week apart, but this droll horror bucks the norm.

Grabbers, slimy, many-tentacled aliens, descend on an island off the coast of Ireland, slaughtering the populace. Richard Coyle's sozzled Garda is charged with destroying them, along with his new partner (Ruth Bradley) and Russell Tovey's forensic scientist. Shaun of the Dead, Gremlins and Evolution all spring to mind watching this perfect-for-DVD caper.
