Sobriety kills? Yep, in John Wright
‘s upcoming horror comedy Grabbers
, the only way to survive (and escape some creepy, bloodsucking aliens) is – to get drunk
! Definitely looks promising, head inside to check out the official US trailer and (an awesome!) poster for the whole thing in the rest of this report.
In case you’re not so familiar with the movie, let us first inform you that Jon Wright
directed the pic from a script written by Kevin Lehane
, which is set in an idyllic fishing village off the coast of Ireland, where people are saved by alcohol.
Or, if you prefer the official synopsis:
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.
