Grabbers (2012) Plot & Synopsis


Starring Lalor Roddy, Laurence Doherty, Ned Dennehy, Roz McCutcheon, Ruth Bradley

Directed by Jon Wright

Grabbers featured an odd couple detective team join up to protect a small Irish fishing town of Erin Island from tentacled alien invaders. The older hard drinking Ciaran O’Shea (Richard Coyle) is paired with younger Lisa Nolan (Ruth Bradley) in this horror comedy. The pairing alone seems to suggest that this team up if done right should be loads of laughs.

The extraterrestrial alien creatures have an aversion to alcohol so the towns folk must get insanely drunk in order to vanquish these monsters.

Grabbers seems like a new horror comedy that everyone has to see for themselves this upcoming July 19, 2013.

Synopsis: Police officer Lisa Nolan comes to Aran Island, Ireland, to take charge during a colleague's two-week holiday. Simultaneously, blood-thirsty, sea-dwelling aliens arrive at the quiet island to propagate. As dead whales wash up on shore and people start mysteriously disappearing, officers and a few locals slowly discover their peril along with one sure defense - high blood alcohol levels, which the aliens can't stomach. As a storm approaches, enabling hungry hatchlings access to the locals, an open bar kicks off a desperate bid for survival as inebriated police and friends stagger to remain cognizant long enough to thwart the alien invasion.

Tagline: Last call at the bar.

Storyline: When an island off the coast of Ireland is invaded by bloodsucking aliens, the heroes discover that getting drunk is the only way to survive.
