Critic Reviews of "Grabbers"Seattle TimesAugust 01, 2013
Off to the pub!RogerEbert.comJuly 19, 2013
The movie never aspires to be more than a cookie-cutter creature feature-the kind of film that can be washed back with a pint and then forgotten in the morning.AV ClubJuly 18, 2013
The tough thing about genre hybrids is that they have to fulfill both genres, and Grabbers only nails one of them.VarietyJanuary 26, 2012
A polished, watchable genre entertainment that nonetheless lacks the inspired dialogue and situations needed to make a memorable impression.TheHorrorShowAugust 26, 2015
A group of Irish villagers have to stay drunk to keep alcohol-fearing alien monsters at bay. Yup.OregonianAugust 02, 2013
Recommended only for those peering through the thickest of beer goggles.Examiner.comAugust 02, 2013
Grabbers combines horror and comedy into one extremely satisfying octopus-like baby that results in some of the most fun you'll have with any film this year.We Got This CoveredJuly 23, 2013
Out of all the bad decisions you've drunkenly made, one viewing of Grabbers makes up for the lot of them. With or without beer goggles, Jon Wright's film is equally entertaining - and without any regrets the following morning!The PlaylistJuly 19, 2013
Perfect fodder for a late-night audience, UK/Irish co-production Grabbers, directed by Jon Wright, is a fun ride, and while it doesn't reinvent the "Tremors" and Slither modern-b-movie wheel, it adds a few neat touches to that formula.The DissolveJuly 18, 2013
The biggest issue with Grabbers is that it's more slick than squirmy. Aside from a few good low-fi gross-out scenes ... Grabbers has the look and style of a big-budget action epic, not a scrappy little indie-horror.Slant MagazineJuly 16, 2013
Good, clean genre entertainment, the sort of harmless yet endearing brand of moviemaking seemingly unattainable in today's Hollywood system.
