An idyllic remote Irish island is invaded by enormous bloodsucking tentacled creatures from the sea. With islanders turning up decapitated and drained of blood, the inhabitants learn that the creatures—called Grabbers—are allergic to alcohol, making intoxicated people toxic to eat. Overrun and under attack, the hopeless locals realize that in order to stay alive through a storm that’s keeping everyone trapped on the island, they’re going to have to band together at the pub and do their best to survive the night
They had me the second I saw drinking and tentacles. What does that say about me? I try not to think about that too much. I came across this trailer which screams Lovecraftian terror mixed in with drunken humor. That’s pretty much all I need to know to throw my money at it. Nice special effects as well. I can’t wait to see Grabbers.
Grabbers is directed by Jon Wright and stars Richard Coyle, Ruth Bradley, and Russell Tovey. Grabbers will becoming out to select theaters soon and on video on demand around July 19th.
