[Sundance '12]: 'Grabbers' First Clip High On Character, Low On Octopus

 [Sundance 12]: Grabbers First Clip High On Character, Low On Octopus

Pegged as Waking Dead 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.

Earlier this month we landed an exclusive first look at the film and now Twitchfilm has landed a clip from the movie.

I think the clip shows a nice strength of economy in terms of both setting up the characters and the tone of the piece. It’s nice to see indie filmmakers embracing the jaunty spirit that studios used to allow in their horror comedies more often in the 1980′s. Nothing wrong with a horror film being fun.
