Jon Wright’s “Grabbers”, kinda like the 1990 cult hit “Tremors”, but with Irish people, and lots and lots of liquor. Hey, at least Wright and company are embracing their stereotype, I guess. The film was recently acquired by the good folks at IFC Midnight, though there are no current release date for Stateside monster fans as of yet. But hey, don’t let that stop you from enjoying this first trailer for “Grabbers”.
An idyllic remote Irish fishing village – replete with twinkly-eyed eccentric Waking Ned characters – is invaded by enormous tentacled creatures from the sea who are picking off the villagers one at a time. The inhabitants learn that the one thing the creatures don’t like is alcohol, it makes people taste horrible, so they realise that in order to stay alive, they’re going to have to get as pissed as possible.
Starring Richard Coyle, Ruth Bradley, Russell Tovey, Lalor Roddy, David Pearse, and Bronagh Gallagher.
Irish fans get it first August 10, 2012.
