Watch An Exclusive Clip From Sundance Creature Feature GRABBERS
Premiering at Sundance later today is director Jon Wright's UK horror comedy Grabbers, a tale of ravenous monsters arising from the deep to feast on any available flesh. Unless, of course, the flesh in question has been drinking, these particular monsters not being fond of alcohol. So, quick, pass another pint. The festival describes the film like this:
Twitch is proud to present an exclusive first clip from the film. No tentacles or irresponsible consumption of alcohol here, though. No, this first bit chooses instead to focus on some character interactions and it looks absolutely spot on. Been waiting for a movie to come along and scratch that Tremors itch? This could be it.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!
