The horror-comedy Grabbers puts a unique spin on the alien invasion genre, centering on a small Irish fishing town that is rocked by a large alien creature. Local cops Ciaran O'Shea (Richard Coyle) and Lisa Nolan (Ruth Bradley) discover that this monster only attacks those who are sober, and the only way to protect themselves is to stay drunk. IFC Midnight has debuted two clips from this horror-comedy, directed by Jon Wright. Take a look at these scenes before checking out Grabbers in theaters and on cable VOD, iTunes, SundanceNow, Amazon Streaming, PS3 Playstation Unlimited, XBOX Zune, Google PLAY and YouTube.
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.
