Alcohol Will Save Your Life in 'Grabbers'


Who said alcohol was bad for your health? Well it actually is, so drink sensibly people, but in this upcoming Irish comedy/horror Grabbers, the more alcohol you drink the less appetizing you will become for these little creatures.

Wanna know what I'm babbling on about? Check out the synopsis:

"An idyllic remote Irish fishing village – replete with twinkly-eyed eccentric Waking Ned characters – is invaded by enormous tentacled creatures from the sea who are picking off the villagers one at a time. The inhabitants learn that the one thing the creatures don’t like is alcohol, it makes people taste horrible, so they realise that in order to stay alive, they’re going to have to get as pissed as possible."

We don't have a poster for the movie but we do have some fan art thanks to their Facebook page, check it out below:


According to STYD and the film's Facebook page, Grabbers is currently in it's second week of principal photography which is taking place on location at Belfast and Donegal, Ireland.

Grabbers is written by Kevin Lehane and directed by Jon Wright, the film starsRichard Coyle, Ruth Bradley, Russell Tovey, Lalor Roddy, David Pearse, Bronagh Gallagher, Pascal Scott, Clelia Murphy, Jonathan Ryan, Barbara Adair, Stuart Graham, Roz McCutcheon, Louis Dempsey, Killian Coyle, Billy Clarke and Ned Dennehy. 

Grabbers is said to be heavily influenced by the 1990 cult classic Tremors and well if it's anything like the original Tremors then sign me up as this just sounds a whole lot better.

Sony Pictures has acquired the UK rights for the film, and is scheduled for a 2011 release date, no word on U.S release news as of yet.
