Back in April we shared the news that IFC Films would be releasing Jon Wright's GRABBERS on July 19 under the IFC Midnight banner in select theaters and on cable VOD, iTunes, Amazon, Xbox Zune, PlayStation, SundanceNow.com and other digital VOD outlets. The Irish horror-comedy import grabbed audiences attentions at Sundance and Fantasia back in 2012 and has been on our radar for quite some time, so we've been counting down the days until the films release. To tide us over until July 19, we now have a look at the US trailer and new illustrated one-sheet for the creature feature, which you can check out below courtesy of IGN.
Something sinister has come to the shores of Erin Island, unbeknownst to the quaint population of this sleepy fishing village resting somewhere off the coast of Ireland. First, some fishermen go missing. Then there is the rash of whale carcasses found washed up on the beach. When the murders start, it’s up to two mismatched cops— the charming but somewhat work-shy Ciaran O’Shea and his new by-the-book partner from the mainland, Lisa Nolan—to protect the islanders from the giant, bloodsucking, tentacled aliens that are out to get them. Their only weapon, they discover, is booze. If they want to survive the creatures’ onslaught, everyone will have to get very, very drunk.
Richard Coyle, Ruth Bradley, Russell Tovey, Lalor Roddy, David Pearse and Bronagh Gallagher star. Check out the new US trailer for GRABBERS below.
