I’ve always been a fan of the Tremors series and most movies that involve creatures/monsters terrorizing humans. So, I’m pleased to show you a movie from director Jon Wright that features these tentacled beasties that attack a bunch of Irish-folk on Erin Island. The townsfolk come up the brilliant idea to get drunk so that the monsters won’t attack them due to the ‘poison’ in their blood. Bloody great concept to me. Take a look at the trailers below.
Ciarán O’Shea, the handsome though washed up policeman of sleepy Erin Island, has a daily routine consisting mainly of hanging out at the pub with the local drunks and various other charmingly eccentric characters. But his day is about to go horribly wrong.
Teamed up with the unwanted help of Lisa – an uptight workaholic policewoman from the Irish mainland – they suddenly find themselves dealing with dead whales, decapitated fishermen and weird alien creatures or “grabbers”. Like a giant squid with tentacles, fanged jaws and a three-foot barbed tongue, they’re making mincemeat of the locals.
Faced with another imminent attack, O’Shea and Lisa figure out that the only person to survive the last onslaught only did so because he was so drunk his blood was literally toxic to the monsters. So there is only one thing for it: They have to get the entire village as drunk as possible in order to survive the night … a task that the villagers apply themselves to with gusto.
But one person must remain sober so for the first time in years O’Shea has to face up to things without a drink. When things don’t go to plan, an extremely drunk Lisa and a very sober O’Shea have to reconcile their differences and somehow save the day.
Grabbers is expected to be released VOD and to video stores later this year. The film stars Richard Coyle, Ruth Bradley, and Russell Tovey.
