Is Grabbers the next Tremors? That's been the buzz since shooting on the creature feature (in Ireland) was first announced last year. But from the looks of a new still that just arrived online, Grabbers also looks a little like Alien. See what I mean when you check out the full image after the jump.
Shock Till You Drop just got the above exclusive still from director Jon Wright's Grabbers, which will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 23rd, as part of the Park City at Midnight program. Here's the film's official synopsis...
Something sinister has come to the shores of Erin Island, unbeknownst to the quaint population of this sleepy fishing village resting somewhere off Ireland's coast. First, some fishermen go missing. Then there is the rash of whale carcasses suddenly washing up on the beach. When the murders start, it's up to two mismatched cops—an irresponsible alcoholic and his new partner, a by-the-book woman from the mainland—to protect the townsfolk from the giant, bloodsucking, tentacled aliens that prey upon them. Their only weapon, they discover, is booze. If they want to survive the creatures' onslaught, everyone will have to get very, very drunk!
