Upcoming Irish boozy horror flick Grabbers has just released two rather wonderful new clips. If you haven't come across the movie yet, here's a 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.

Obviously, if you're averse to spoilers of any kind, this won't be your bag. That said, they're very entertaining clips and I thoroughly recommend you whetting your appetite for some more sea-monster mayhem with them. There's a lovely Shaun of the Dead vibe to the film with the pub as the safe refuge from the supernatural chaos and the charmingly slacker-esque characters.



Grabbers is currently out in selected theaters and on various VOD platforms.
