Storyline

Police officer Lisa Nolan comes to Aran Island, Ireland, to take charge during a colleague's two-week holiday. Simultaneously, blood-thirsty, sea-dwelling aliens arrive at the quiet island to propagate. As dead whales wash up on shore and people start mysteriously disappearing, officers and a few locals slowly discover their peril along with one sure defense - high blood alcohol levels, which the aliens can't stomach. As a storm approaches, enabling hungry hatchlings access to the locals, an open bar kicks off a desperate bid for survival as inebriated police and friends stagger to remain cognizant long enough to thwart the alien invasion.

...finally, a great, great, great reason to get sloshed...
15 March 2014 | by bcheng93See all my reviews

...well, the idea for this horror comedy is fairly original, and it works in a wacky sorta way. i didn't expect much going in and totally enjoyed it. i would watch just about any movie as long as it has a couple of good-night rain scenes in it and this one has.

i don't think there were any A-listers in this movie but everybody in this movie did more than a competent job. like i said the idea for this movie is fairly original and that was the only reason i watched it. i just want to say that for me personally, the lead actress is totally gorgeous and a fine actress, i will look for more works of hers in the future.

i like horror movies cause i want to feel scared and tense...,to me it is not about the gore. this movie does that very tastefully as there was only about 15 seconds worth of gore in the whole movie and they all worked well. there was tension in parts of the movie and some scenes were scary. there were the usual cliché characters, but they all felt like they belong in the movie.

what is unique and hard to do though, is to blend the horror with the comedy and the movie did itself quite well in that department. this movie was pretty funny too! it seems like every British movie or Irish or Scottish is like a beautiful tourism commercial and this one is no exception...kudos to that!

everything about this movie was well done and nothing felt corny or hammy and BTW...for all you CGI fans out there, for what there was it was really well done too.

i'm surprise it took me this long to find this " gem " of a movie and i think i'm going to watch it again as soon as i'm done with the review.

mark my words, this will become a cult classic and i can't wait till the sequel comes out.
