Check out the trailer for the Irish horror/comedy creature film, GRABBERS!
IFC Midnight films recently released this new horror/comedy film, GRABBERS. It looks like a fun film and will do for creature films what SHAUN OF THE DEAD did for zombie films! Here is the plot synopsis from the film's official website:
Directed by Jon Wright, GRABBERS tells the story of Ciarán O’Shea, a charming but heavy-drinking local Garda who is tasked with greeting Lisa Nolan, a straight-laced young officer who has just arrived to a small fishing village off the West coast of Ireland. Not that there’s 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 Garda 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! Starring Richard Coyle (W.E, THE WHISTLEBLOWERS) and Ruth Bradley (LOVE/HATE, TITANIC) GRABBERS is a monster comedy from Irish screenwriter Kevin Lehane.
The film is not out on DVD yet for the U.S, but is available now on Amazon Instant Video and iTunes!
