GRABBERS Gets a New Poster and US Trailer

  • Save
The goofy Irish horror comedy Grabbers is finally making its way Stateside and with it comes a new US trailer and a fantastic looking poster.  The film plays out similar to Tremors, though it’s much more tongue in cheek and features a lot more drinking.  Turns out, the only way to prevent this monster from grabbing you, is to be completely sloshed.

IFC Midnight picks up the North American rights and is set to release the film on VOD July 19th.  Hit the jump for the new trailer, poster, and synopsis.

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.
