AFM 2010: First Look at the Sales Art & Full Synopsis – Grabbers

Fans of H.P Lovecraft will have their hearts melted and their funny bones officially tickled by this latest bit of artwork for a film called Grabbers that just caught our attention at AFM.

This UK/Irish horror comedy directed by Jon Wright (the equal parts funny and badass Tormented) will be in the style of Gremlins and Tremors.

Ciarán O’Shea, the handsome though washed up policeman of sleepy Erin Island, has a daily routine consisting mainly of hanging out at the pub with the local drunks and various other charmingly eccentric characters. But his day is about to go horribly wrong.

Teamed up with the unwanted help of Lisa – an uptight workaholic policewoman from the Irish mainland – they suddenly find themselves dealing with dead whales, decapitated fishermen and weird alien creatures or “grabbers”. Like a giant squid with tentacles, fanged jaws and a three-foot barbed tongue, they’re making mincemeat of the locals.

Faced with another imminent attack, O’Shea and Lisa figure out that the only person to survive the last onslaught only did so because he was so drunk his blood was literally toxic to the monsters. So there is only one thing for it: They have to get the entire village as drunk as possible in order to survive the night … a task that the villagers apply themselves to with gusto.

But one person must remain sober so for the first time in years O’Shea has to face up to things without a drink. When things don’t go to plan, an extremely drunk Lisa and a very sober O’Shea have to reconcile their differences and somehow save the day.

Now that’s a plot we can get behind!

      And then some. That synopsis is just brilliant.

      I have to agree.

      And being British the odds of the humour being funny are significantly higher!
