It’s always the quiet places where the madness happens. On behalf of IFC Midnight, we are pleased to share the official US trailer and brand new poster for the their upcoming horror-comedy, GRABBERS. When an alien invasion strikes in a sleepy Ireland town, the residents learn that the only way to stay safe… is to stay drunk.
The film was an official selection of the Sundance Film Festival and is sure to become a cult classic! Check out the official poster and trailer and see why IGN called the film “as ridiculous as it is entertaining.”
On Erin Island, an idyllic fishing village off the coast of Ireland, charming but somewhat work-shy Ciaran O’Shea, is tasked with greeting Lisa Nolan, a straight-laced young officer who has arrived from the mainland. Not that there is much for them to do, aside from dealing with the occasional drunk, and that’s usually O’Shea himself. 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. It’s time to rally the villagers, arm the troops…and head to the pub.
GRABBERS opens in select theaters and will be available on cable VOD and digital outlets starting July 19th
