Browsing through some of the new releases on Netflix recently, I saw a horror-comedy that I remembered enjoying the trailer for a while back. Turns out, the movie lived up to the trailer, as Grabbers is a fun monster flick in the vein of Shaun of the Dead.
The film centers around a small Irish island that becomes the mating ground for sea monsters. The monsters look like Shuma Gorath from the Marvel U, and they need two things to thrive--blood and water.
The tone of Grabbers is pretty light, and while there are a couple of decapitations, there’s actually very little gore in this movie. The special effects are pretty decent, which is really the only thing that elevates the movie above your normal SyFy Saturday night fare.
