There’s enough to like about this Irish film, a comedy with alien monsters in it, but not really a horror comedy, to give it a pass for its flaws. It’s a film I desperately wanted to see kick everything up a notch the whole way through because it has such a great premise. Lovecraftian, water-loving aliens crash into the waters off Erin Island and they come to land to lay eggs and eat the population. However they have an aversion to alcohol, which is a deadly weakness when attacking Irishmen.
Unfortunately, they only don’t like it when they ingest alcohol, which makes the townspeople safe from being sucked dry, but that doesn’t help them from just being killed by the variety of squishy tentacled bad boys attacking the little pub that they all decide to hide out in. Amidst all the craziness is a drunk cop in a love triangle with the teetotaller beautiful new guard and the local nerdy physician.
Having it be a plot point that your main characters have to be drunk in order to fight a monster is kind of genius, but the plot is erratic and the film seems to be more concerned with making sure we see connections to Jaws, Tremors and Critters than it is about telling its own story.
However, the cast (Richard Coyle, Ruth Bradley and Russell Tovey) are all solid, the supporting characters genuinely fun and the CG (minus a few key exceptions) is surprisingly good. Don’t be surprised to catch this one on Netflix in a year’s time and have a fun time with it. With the premise and obvious technical skill I was just hoping the movie would have been more than decently fun.
