Comedy is the focus of New York City’s Friars Club Film
Festival, but the 2012 event has a number of entries with horrific themes,
including a couple of eagerly awaited titles.
The lineup for this year’s Friars Club fest, running
October 24-27 at assorted NYC venues, includes Jon Wright’s Irish/UK opus
GRABBERS (showing Wednesday, Oct. 24 at 9:30 p.m.), in which small-town
residents besieged by hungry aliens discover that alcohol—and the consumption
thereof—is the key to combatting the invaders. Speaking of consumption, Noboru
Iguchi’s DEAD SUSHI (Saturday, Oct. 27 at 6:30 p.m.) is about a young woman
(Rina Takeda) striving to be a sushi chef whose martial-arts skills come in
handy when her workplace is threatened by lethal seafood (see review here).
And in Casey Walker’s A LITTLE BIT ZOMBIE (Thursday, Oct. 25 at 5:30 p.m.), a
groom succumbs to an undead virus and tries not to let it spoil his impending
wedding while dodging an obsessed zombie hunter (review here). See the
trailers for all three flicks below. There’s lots of other craziness on the
Friars Club Fest schedule, so check out the official website for ticket ordering and other info.
