Director Jon Wright’s Tremors influenced Irish horror comedy Grabbers has been on our radar for a while now, but only today did it receive a release date. IFC Films will release on July 19 under the IFC Midnight banner in select theaters and on cable VOD, iTunes, Amazon, Xbox Zune, PlayStation, SundanceNow.com and other digital VOD outlets Grabbers stars Richard Coyle, Ruth Bradley and Russell Tovey in a film that takes to “a sleepy Irish fishing village that’s forced to fend off a blood-sucking sea creature.” The new international trailer has now hit featuring new looks at the film’s creature. IFC acquired the film out of Sundance 18 months ago.
Ryan Daley said this about the Sundance Film Festival selection: “I liked the hell out Grabbers, but if it had revealed its monster just a little less often, and been just a little more menacing in its approach, it could have transcended mere likeability on the way to horror greatness.” Read his entire review here.
