IFC Grabs Rights To Irish Horror-Comedy GRABBERS

IFC has acquired the rights to the horror/comedy GRABBERSJon Wright directed the Irish film  that stars Richard Coyle, Ruth Bradley and Russell Tovey. The movie was a huge hit at Sundance earlier this year.

An idyllic remote Irish fishing village is invaded by enormous tentacled creatures from the sea who are picking off the villagers one at a time. The inhabitants learn that the one thing the creatures don't like is alcohol, it makes people taste horrible, so they realize that in order to stay alive, they’re going to have to get as drunk as possible

From Jonathan Sehring, President of Sundance Selects/IFC Films;
 “GRABBERS is a great time at the movies and an ingenious update of the classic monster movie. We look forward to working with director Jon Wright when we release it later this year.”
From  Brimm and Meyers;
"We are delighted that IFC Midnight will be bringing GRABBERS to the US as well as South America. We have great faith in the IFC team and their enthusiasm for the film combined with a unique distribution model make them the perfect partner for the film.”
