Grabbers Trailer

"It's always the quiet places where the madness happens." IFC Midnight has released the full US trailer for Grabbers, an indie sci-fi monster movie from Ireland about some weird octopus-like aliens that find their way into a small fishing village off the West coast of Ireland. Richard Coyle, Ruth Bradley and Russell Tovey star in this drunken, comedic sci-fi thriller that looks like it might have some good FX work hidden throughout. The amusing setup is that if they drink alcohol their blood will be poisonous to the creatures, keeping them safe, or something like that. The poster art is pretty damn cool as well, added it below. Enjoy!

Here's the latest official US trailer for Jon Wright's Grabbers, originally from IGN:

Directed by Irish filmmaker Jon Wright (Tormented), from a script by Kevin Lehane, 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. 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 O'Shea and Nolan that there's something big out there, and that it's hungry. First premiered at Sundance and Edinburgh 2012.

And here's the new poster for Jon Wright's Grabbers, also from IGN via IMPAwards:

It's the sheedley dee Ireland, like the version of Scotland in Highlander where everyone just gets drunk and goes to Céilidh's. Though, to be fair, wnever I go back to Ireland to visit, it is a little bit like that. Weirdly the last time I was back, i met one of the actresses from this film.

Maybe around the rest of the world, but in the US... July 19, 2013. At least that's what IFC Midnight is planning.

I saw this last year at the Bergen International Film Festival. Kinda boring.

I saw this when it played at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival last fall. I enjoyed it.

That is the best poster ever.

Go watch it and stop being so cynical you other lot, it's brilliant! Very funny, clever for such a low-budget film with great effects AND...think Tremors but in a pub.

Saw this in the UK. Had some very good CGI and was beautifully shot in places but it wasn't funny enough to be a comedy or scary enough to be a decent horror and had terrible pacing.
