Thankfully, Lindhardt keeps things together with an appealing performance that constantly oscillates between drama and very light, dry humor without sacrificing the slightly otherworldly nature of his character.

Film Journal International

A dark comedy driven by spot-on digs at academia, cutthroat art-world competition and the quest for inspiration.

Despite the theme, "Eddie" goes easy on gratuitous gore. What we get is a cerebral horror movie and a satire of the art world.

A flawed but diverting meditation on finding inspiration while losing your soul.

Beneath the surface outrageousness lies a surprisingly, satisfyingly dark little fable about the essentially cannibalistic nature of artistic inspiration.

[VIDEO ESSAY] Fine-tuning the nuances cannibals, rather than zombies, proves modestly rewarding in a dark little comedy that owes more to Roger Corman's "Bucket of Blood" than it does to "Dawn of the Dead."

An unlikely-buddy horror flick which figured a viable way of walking a fine line between the sadistic and the sublime.

As far as it goes, Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal is a well-paced and calibrated blend of juicy gore and low-key comedy.

This deliberately tasteless horror-comedy might appeal to gore hounds and fans of gross-out humor; but as with many films that strive for cult status, any potential exploitation-movie pleasures are overwhelmed by an air of smug self-awareness.

Boris Rodriguez's movie sadly ends up being neither an effective horror movie nor a memorable satire. It just kind of, pardon me for going there, sleepwalks through its clever set-up.

A quirky but unfulfilling Canadian-Danish horror-comedy that has a substantial helping of originality on its side, but not much in the way of inspired execution.

It's not often I question content in a horror film, but after sleepwalking dully through Rodriguez's movie, I can only shrug and ask myself what just happened - with the least amount of interest.

Because the film clearly aims for satire, Boris Rodriguez isn't entirely guilty of indulging gruesome spectacle for its own sake.

Allegedly a horror-comedy, it's neither comic nor, despite several scenes of a bloodied Smith in his tighty-whities, particularly horrifying ...
