Cameras Roll on Irish Creature Feature Grabbers


Full cast and plot details…

Principal photography is underway in Belfast and Donegal, Ireland on the horror-comedy Grabbers, directed by Jon Wright from an original screenplay by Kevin Lehane.

Richard Coyle (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time), Ruth Bradley (Flyboys) and Russell Tovey (Being Human) head the cast.

Director Jon Wright re-teams with producers Tracy Brimm and Kate Myers of Forward Films following their collaboration on 2009 teen horror Tormented.

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has acquired UK rights to the project which provides a comic twist on the classic suburban monster horror, as a sleepy Irish fishing village is forced to fend off a blood-sucking sea creature with an unlikely weapon…alcohol. The enchanting Erin Island community is shattered by an invasion of giant squid-like creatures from the sea, known as “grabbers,” who start picking off the villagers.

Local policeman O’Shea (Coyle) is forced to sober up and team up with uptight, teetotal policewoman Lisa (Bradley) to protect the island’s population from the tentacled, fang-jawed, barb-tongued creatures.

Supporting cast members include Bronagh Gallagher (Sherlock Holmes) and Lalor Roddy.
