In what should prove to be a smart pickup for the company, IFC Midnight have acquired US rights to Jon Wright's Sundance selected horror comedy Grabbers
Something sinister has come to the shores of Erin Island, unbeknownst
the quaint population of this sleepy fishing village resting somewhere
off Ireland's coast. First, some fishermen go missing. Then there is the
rash of whale carcasses suddenly washing up on the beach. When the
murders start, it's up to two mismatched cops--an irresponsible
and his new partner, a by-the-book woman from the mainland--to protect
the townsfolk from the giant, bloodsucking, tentacled aliens that prey
upon them. Their only weapon, they discover, is booze. If they want to
survive the creatures' onslaught, everyone will have to get very, very drunk!
Jon Wright's whimsical throwback to classic monster flicks relishes in
delivering perfectly timed thrills and madcap antics. In true cult
fashion, Grabbers imparts the great fun of a spooky old carnival ride with an Irish twist. Don't forget to grab a drink!
A clever little picture that hits the Tremors
vibe, this one should find a loyal audience on US shores. Check a clip from the film below.
