Who isn’t a mood for a little tentacled aliens from outer space? I know I do. So grab a pint or Samuel Adams (or whatever it is that you drink) and sit down and grab some, cause Jon Wright’s tentacle-lious creature feature “Grabbers” invades selected Stateside theaters, cable, VOD and digital outlets starting July 19th courtesy of IFC Midnight, but until then, check out a new swanky poster and a U.S. trailer for the film.
In case you missed it, you can read James Mudge’s review of the film here.
On Erin Island, an idyllic fishing village off the coast of Ireland, charming but somewhat work-shy Ciaran O’Shea, is tasked with greeting Lisa Nolan, a straight-laced young officer who has arrived from the mainland. Not that there is much for them to do, aside from dealing with the occasional drunk, and that’s usually O’Shea himself. But strange doings are afoot: the crew of a fishing boat disappears, whales start appearing dead on the shore, a local lobsterman catches a strange tentacled creature in his trap. Soon it becomes clear to O’Shea and Nolan that there’s something big out there, and that it’s hungry. It’s time to rally the villagers, arm the troops…and head to the pub.
The film stars Richard Coyle, Ruth Bradley, Russel Tovey, Lalor Roddy, David Pearse, Bronagh Gallagher, and Pascal Scott.
