H.P. Lovecraft. Is there anyone cooler in the world of horror? His slimy, creepy, creatures of the underworld are so hideous that they’re beyond description. I’m an immediate sucker for anything related (which is probably why John Carpenter’s In the Mouth of Madness and Stuart Gordon’s Re-Animator are among my favorite horror films of all-time.)
Pegged as Waking Ned meets Tremors with tentacles, Jon Wright directs the Irish horror comedy Grabbers that stars Richard Coyle, Ruth Bradley and Russell Tovey in a film that takes to “a sleepy Irish fishing village forced to fend off a blood-sucking sea creature with alcohol.”
We’ve already shared with you some teaser stills, but now we’ve got something much more special: your first ever look at the official quad and character posters for the film aiming for release in 2012. The pic will be on sale at this week’s Cannes market.
“An idyllic remote Irish fishing village 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 realize that in order to stay alive, they’re going to have to get as drunk as possible.”
I’ll drink to that!
