A little-known, forthcoming UFO/alien movie is brought to our attention in the October 2012 hard-copy edition of Empire magazine. Its title: Grabbers!
"Grabbers sounds like an insanely fun monster movie about a sleepy Irish coastal town that is invaded by octopus-like space aliens," says Empire.
The twist, though, is that the aliens are allergic to alcohol, meaning the whole town needs to get drunk to effectively fight off the space 'Grabbers', which, according to director Jon Wright, are "reminiscent of arseholes, cocks and vaginas."
"[It's] all very weird and uncomfortable," says Wright. "When [the Grabbers] come close, you think, 'Ahh, I don't want that thing on my face!', which, of course, is where it ends up."
The film's star, Richard Coyle, tells Empire: "I'm playing an alcoholic but it's not a film about alcoholism. It's a fine line, I know, but Pretty woman isn't a film about prostitution, is it? The script is very funny. The Irish do like to have a drink and a laugh, but this film is not saying, 'What a bunch of pissheads!' It's about an island community of lovely people."
Prepare to be 'Grabbed' at cinemas in 2013.
