New British comedy horror 'Grabbers' premiered at the Sundance festival yesterday and hopefully everyone who managed to get in thoroughly enjoyed the Jon Wright helmed project. Twitch Film managed to score an exclusive clip from the movie which features stars Richard Coyle ('Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time'), Russell Tovey ('Being Human') and Ruth Bradley ('Primeval'). Sadly the clip doesn't reveal anything of the "tentacled aliens". If you didn't already know the action takes place on an island off the coast of Ireland that is invaded by bloodsucking aliens. And the only way to survive? To get drunk!! That's right, all the locals have to get totally wasted in order to fend of these bloodsuckers. Sounds like one hell of a plan, or excuse. Bronagh Gallagher, Ned Dennehy, Stuart Graham, Lalor Roddy, Jonathan Ryan, Barbara Adair, Louis Dempsey and David Pearse also star. Check out the new clip below.
"Something sinister has come to the shores of Erin Island, unbeknownst to the quaint population of this sleepy fishing village resting somewhere off Ireland's coast. First, some fishermen go missing. Then there is the rash of whale carcasses suddenly washing up on the beach. When the murders start, it's up to two mismatched cops--an irresponsible alcoholic and his new partner, a by-the-book woman from the mainland--to protect the townsfolk from the giant, bloodsucking, tentacled aliens that prey upon them. Their only weapon, they discover, is booze. If they want to survive the creatures' onslaught, everyone will have to get very, very drunk!
Director Jon Wright's whimsical throwback to classic monster flicks relishes in delivering perfectly timed thrills and madcap antics. In true cult fashion, Grabbers imparts the great fun of a spooky old carnival ride with an Irish twist. Don't forget to grab a drink!"'Grabbers' Artwork
