IFC Midnight to Bring the Irish Horror Flick Grabbers to the US

No Comments

I know this will probably sound like a paid sales pitch to a lot of overly cynical people, but I really like IFC Midnight. They’ve brought a lot of cool features to the US — they are, after all, responsible for bringing us “Stake Land” and “Vengeance” — and the list of cool titles keeps growing every year. Director Jon Wright’s Irish creature feature “Grabbers” is the latest to be acquired by the genre-friendly distributor, though, as of this writing, a release date has not been set.

Unfamiliar with “Grabbers”? Check this out:

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.

“Grabbers” stars Richard Coyle, Ruth Bradley, Russell Tovey, Lalor Roddy, David Pearse, Bronagh Gallagher, Pascal Scott, Clelia Murphy, Jonathan Ryan, Barbara Adair, Stuart Graham, Roz McCutcheon, Louis Dempsey, Killian Coyle, Billy Clarke and Ned Dennehy. I can’t wait to see a trailer for this one. While we’re waiting, take a look at the quad poster below.
