"He Eats Small Animals?" Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal Has Arrived! (Trailer)
Boris Rodriguez's award-winning dark comedy appears to hit all the right notes.
Thus far, Boris Rodriguez's new dark-comedy flick 'Eddie: The Sleeping Cannibal has won the Black Tulip Award at the Amsterdam Film Festival and the Grand Prize of European Fantasy Film at the Leeds International Film Festival. There's plenty of buzz around the film and we get our first look in a brand-new trailer.
The movie stars Thure Lindhardt as Lars Olaffsen, a once famous artist who loses inspiration and takes a teaching post in a very small Canadian town. There he meets Eddie, a mute man with mental health problems who Lars takes under his wing to impress an attractive colleague. The problem is, Eddie is a cannibal and feasts on the bodies of the small animals while sleepwalking. When Lars discovers human remains near Eddie's home, he begins to use it as inspiration for a new set of masterpieces, though how far should he push it before turning Eddie into the cops? Though few have seen the movie, the Globe and Mail gave it a glittering review. "As far as it goes, Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal is a well-paced and calibrated blend of juicy gore and low-key comedy," said Liam Lacey. The Wall Street Journal called it "outrageous."
Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal should delight a select audience when it hits U.S. cinemas on 4th April, 2013.
