Well… I know I’ve fallen behind yet again but here we finally are once more with another Review… this time, with a peek at one of the two films we saw at Sandra’s over Thanksgiving with the family. Yes.. yes… it seems now that I’m soooo darn loved and accepted by those wonderful folks that now they too will even put up with my terrible, terrible tastes in movies just like my sweetie. 😉
So what, pray tell, did I inflict upon them for our “Family Thanksgiving Movie Fest 2013”? Why the recently released Irish Monster Movie “Grabbers”….
The synopsis? How’s this: “On small, remote Erin Island, an idyllic fishing village off the coast of Ireland, charming but somewhat work-shy Guarda officer Ciaran O’Shea, is tasked with greeting Lisa Nolan, a straight-laced no-nonsense by-the-book young female officer who has arrived from the mainland for a temporary two week duty posting. Not that there is much for them to do, aside from dealing with the occasional drunk, and that’s usually O’Shea himself. But strange doings are afoot: first the crew of a fishing boat disappears, then whales start appearing dead on the shore, and finally local lobster man catches a strange tentacled sea beastie in one of his traps. Soon it becomes clear to O’Shea and Nolan that there’s something big out there, and that it’s hungry. It’s time to rally the villagers, arm the troops…and head to the pub.”
Sounds a wee bit like “Tremors”, eh? Oh yeah… well big honking tentacle beasties worked in that one so I suppose it’s only fair to see if adding some drunken Irishmen to the plot works even better. I was certainly game, and I knew my new “nephew”, Adam would be happy with some crazy monster fun. Heck… my sweetheart Carolyn would just be glad for a movie where they speak English… even if it’s with an accent. 😉
