Nice movie, entertaining

I was skeptical about this movie, I didn't have any feedback about it and I was expecting a poor and boring movie but it turned out to be quite okay.

The movie is about a painter that hadn't produced nothing new in years and that found himself living with a sleepwalking cannibal. Watching his companion eating and murdering people, he finds that the thrill of killing gives him the inspiration that he needs to paint and starts exploiting his partner to make new paintings.

The actors were well chosen, mainly the sleepwalking cannibal. The soundtrack of the movie is pretty good too. I just wish that they worked more in the background story and expanded the relationships between the characters.

In despite of some clichés throughout the movie, it's a good and entertaining one.

Night Munches

Artist create art, but often they need a bit of inspiration to get the vision of their creation. Artists Lars Olafssen is in a bit of a funk, he has not produced anything in over ten years. So he find a home in a school as a teacher, there he still cannot break his silence. He befriends Eddie, who is a bit slow and an outcast. Lars has the patience to bring him into his confidence and discovers a hidden secret, when Eddie sleeps he craves flesh and his dreams get him carried away as he becomes the sleep walking cannibal. This gruesome discovery excites Lars and he finds inspiration in what would disgust others. This showing was part of opening for the new home of Cineprov! at the Plaza Theatre, where local arts use their improv talent to add color to the scenes on the big screen.

The snow will run red...

I have no idea where the notion that this was a musical had been instilled in my mind; perhaps I mixed it up with "Cannibal! The Musical" from 1993. Not really sure. But regardless, then I sort of put off watching this movie until now.

I will say that it is a fairly entertaining, albeit stereotypical horror comedy.

The story is about Danish painter Lars (played by Thure Lindhardt) who has come to Canada to work at an art school. The artist has been in a dry spell for 10 years and have no plans to return to making art. However, as he is stuck with having to taking care of a reclusive mute named Eddie (played by Dylan Smith), Lars finds inspiration for his new paintings as he finds out that Eddie sleepwalks, and does so pretty vile stuff while sleepwalking.

Storywise, then "Eddie" (aka "Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal") was entertaining and had a funny - but dark - twist to it. I enjoyed the storyline, because it was a tad bizarre and out there.

The movie was really brought to life by some great performances by the people who were hired for the various roles and characters.

"Eddie" is good entertainment for anyone who enjoys a dark and bloody horror comedy.
