MovieScore Media releases Christian Henson's score for Grabbers, a 2012 alien invasion film set on a small island off the coasts of Ireland. Starring Richard Coyle, Ruth Bradley and Russell Tovey, the action/horror/comedy starts out like any good alien invasion film with blood-thirsty, sea-dwelling aliens arriving to Erin Island. Their path of terror is marked by whale carcasses and mysterious disappearances, but a full-on attack is thwarted by an unlikely escape route to our heroes. The aliens can’t tolerate alcohol, so as long as the residents of the island can fend off the invaders while they’re drunk enough, they may have a chance of survival...

Christian Henson's score for Grabbers contains 22 tracks (1 hr, 02 min, 52 sec). The music, on the whole, works well outside the confines of the movie.

Henson (The Devil's Double; Hysteria; Malice in Wonderland; The Secret of Moonacre; Sinbad), delivers some impressive themes here. As well as the loud and brash, sci-fi-esque action segments you'll be expecting, there are a number of quirky themes (most notably housed in tracks like 'Night Cap' and 'A Tender Moment'.)

While not an essential purchase, it is certainly one of Henson's more impressive offerings and certainly works well as a standalone album.
