Slimy, booze-soaked monster madness of the best kind. Funny, gory and with some feckin’ good CGI
New comedy horror feature Grabbers, which filmed on location in Belfast and Donegal, will open in cinemas across Ireland (NI and ROI) on Friday 10th August. Click here for a full list of cinemas showing Grabbers.
Grabbers tells the story of Ciarán O’Shea, a charming but heavy-drinking local Garda who is tasked with greeting Lisa Nolan, a straight-laced young officer who has just arrived to a small fishing village off the West coast of Ireland. Not that there’s 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 Garda 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!
Grabbers was directed by Jon Wright (Tormented, Fancy Dress) and written by Kevin Lehane (The Fourth Wall, Gonnabes), it stars Richard Coyle, Ruth Bradley, Russell Tovey, Lalor Roddy, David Pearse and Bronagh Gallagher.
Grabbers filmed on location in Belfast in December 2010 and was financed through the Northern Ireland Screen Fund supported by Invest NI and part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
