An idyllic remote Irish fishing village is invaded by enormous bloodsucking tentacled creatures from the sea. With islanders turning up decapitated and drained of blood, the inhabitants learn that the creatures called “Grabbers” are allergic to alcohol, making intoxicated people toxic to eat. Overrun and under attack, the hopeless locals realize that in order to stay alive they’re going to have to band together and get as drunk as humanly possible.
Grabbers is an upcoming Irish-flick, low-budget , monster movie directed by Jon Wright (Tormented) written by Kevin Lehane, and special effects by Paddy Eason. The film stars Richard Coyle (Strange), Ruth Bradley (Primeval), Bronagh Gallagher (The Commiments) and Russell Tovey (Being Human) amongst an ensemble cast of Irish actors.
