Grab A Refreshing Look At the Trailer and Art For ‘Grabbers’

grabbers

Jon Wright’s horror comedy Grabbers (read our review) is finally getting released here in the States.

IFC has unloaded the U.S. trailer and illustrated one-sheet for the film’s July 19 theatrical and VOD release. The Lovecraftian poster is a joke on the film’s plot, in which the town’s people are saved by alcohol.

On Erin Island, an idyllic fishing village off the coast of Ireland, charming but somewhat work-shy Ciaran O’Shea, is tasked with greeting Lisa Nolan, a straight-laced young officer who has arrived from the mainland. Not that there is much for them to do, aside from dealing with the occasional drunk, and that’s usually O’Shea himself. But strange doings are afoot: the crew of a fishing boat disappears, whales start appearing dead on the shore, a local lobsterman catches a strange tentacled creature in his trap. Soon it becomes clear to O’Shea and Nolan that there’s something big out there, and that it’s hungry. It’s time to rally the villagers, arm the troops…and head to the pub.

    finally! this movie looks and sounds hilarious. when i first read about it i don’t think i ever laughed so hard at just a synopsis alone.

  • lilmarkuk

    its a great movie, I watched it ages ago here in the UK

    BUT I know it wont be big in the US simply because when you watch it you will see it seems to be more for the UK public and not worldwide or the US as such

    with the humour and accents etc.

    nodoubt it will be a massive cult movie because its great

      actually sometimes in movies like these the accents make the movie even funnier. i’m not really sure why. sometimes the slang used in british movies goes over my head though. i’m sure it will achieve cult status because it looks so funny/awesome

    lilmarkuk, i agree! this movie was great! it balances comedy & horror perfectly (like SHAUN OF THE DEAD did), has a very likable cast (werewolf Georgie from the awesome UK “BEING HUMAN”) and the creature design and FX are top notch!

    i highly recommend the movie!
