Forced to take an unwanted vacation, police officer Lisa Nolan instead makes it a working holiday by taking over part-time on Erin Island, so that the senior officer can take his own holiday. This shouldn't be much of a problem on a sleepy little island until, that is, the alien menace crashes into the sea just offshore. With tentacles waving, and maws gaping, the islanders look to become a tasty treat for these visitors from somewhere else. Unfortunately for the newcomers, they suffer from an allergy to alcohol. In fact, its an allergy of lethal proportions, so dietary precautions would seem to be the word of the day. Therefore, splashing down off the coast of Ireland is either the worst invasion strategy in history, or at least ludicrously bad travel planning. From official release/information:
Product Description: On Erin Island, an idyllic fishing village off the coast of Ireland, charming inebriate Ciaran O Shea (Richard Coyle, Pusher) is tasked with showing straight-laced police officer Lisa Nolan (Ruth Bradley, Primeval, In Her Skin) her new beat. Not that there s much to police, as most of the community s troubles are caused by O Shea himself. But strange doings are afoot: the crew of a fishing boat disappears, whales start appearing dead on the shore, and a local lobsterman catches a mysterious tentacled creature in his trap. Soon it becomes clear to O Shea and Nolan that there s something unnatural out there, and that it s hungry. So it s time to rally the villagers, arm the troops...and head to the pub.
