FILM REVIEW: Grabbers

We’ve all been there, sitting on the sofa, proximal to one’s better half, or perhaps alone with only tears to sweeten one’s Ovalteen, infuriated with Netflix. “Just choose something”, “But what do you want to watch?” “I don’t know, what do you want to watch?” and so it goes as if the Gods mock you
