[Sundance ’12] Review: ‘Grabbers’ Is A Fun Diversion That Ends Up Showing Too Much

Grabbers

Pegged as Waking Dead meets Tremors, with tentacles, Jon Wright directs the Irish horror comedy Grabbers. Richard Coyle, Ruth Bradley and Russell Tovey in the film that takes to “a sleepy Irish fishing village forced to fend off a blood-sucking sea creature.

The film premiered at the ongoing Sundance Film Festival and now BD’s Ryan Daley writes in with his review. I’ve been hearing good things about the movie and while Daley liked it well enough, I hope I like it just a little bit more.

I realize it sounds like I’m beefing with a completely enjoyable monster flick, and what’s my problem, right? Why not just leave it alone, let it be what it is? Because a monster movie can be both fun and scary. Don‘t get me wrong, I liked the hell out ‘Grabbers’, but if it had revealed its monster just a little less often, and been just a little more menacing in its approach, it could have transcended mere likeability on the way to horror greatness.
