Get ready for Tremors meets H.P. Lovecraft meets Gremlins!
Bloody Disgusting scored a first look at a trio of hi-res images from the Irish comedy horror Grabbers, two of which “tease” the creatures — personally, I’d rather be surprised than have them send us a bunch of photos ruining the look of the monster. You?
Helmed by Jon Wright and penned by Kevin Lehane, the creature feature stars Richard Coyle (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time), Ruth Bradley (Flyboys) and Russell Tovey (The History Boys). It sees a sleepy Irish fishing village forced to fend off a blood-sucking sea creature with alcohol.
“Ciarán o’shea, the handsome though washed up policeman of sleepy erin island has a daily routine consisting mainly of hanging out at the local pub with the local drunks and various other charmingly eccentric characters. but his day is about to go horribly wrong. teamed up with the unwanted help of lisa – an uptight workaholic policewoman from the irish mainland – they suddenly find themselves dealing with dead whales, decapitated fishermen and weird alien creatures or “grabbers”. like a giant squid, with tentacles, fanged jaws and a three foot barbed tongue, they’re making mincemeat of the locals.
faced with another imminent attack, o’shea and lisa figure out that the only person to survive the last onslaught only did so because he was so drunk his blood was literally toxic to the monsters. so there is only one thing for it. they have to get the entire village as drunk as possible in order to survive the night. a task that the villagers apply themselves to with gusto.
but one person must remain sober, so for the first time in years, o’shea has to face up to things without a drink. when things don’t go to plan, an extremely drunk lisa and a very sober o’shea have to reconcile their differences and somehow save the day.”
