Since starting The Walking Dead, I've been on a bit of a zombie craze, and decided it was time to check out and old movie that had a really interesting cover. Unfortunately, the cover is the only interesting thing about Boy Eats Girl. This was a low budget, independent film, made in Ireland, and boy does it show. The story centers around teenage Nathan, played by a much older guy, who is having girl problems. Nathan is all worried about his female trouble, when he has a fatal accident, or at least one that should be fatal. His mom, not wanting to let go of her son, uses an ancient book on voodoo to bring her son back. The story was very typical for this kind of film, however the budget was so low that parts of it looked like an episode of Goosebumps. Technical I suppose the movie is still considered rated R because of gore, even when the blood looks like V8 juice, but this film is anything but scary. Boy Eats Girl, promises a zombie film for the ages, but it's more laughable than anything else. The film is a mess of mumbled line and some of the worst effects I have ever seen.
Hilarious! The movie follows a close group of friends in a small town. Nathan and Jessica secretly like each other, but cannot find the courage to tell each other about their feelings. At the insistence of Henry and Diggs, Nathan decides to tell Jessica. Cruelly, Jessica's father tells him that she's on another date. On his way home, he sees her in a classmate's car. Assuming that she's not at all what she appears to be, Nathan gets drunk and accidentally hangs himself. Distraught, his mother decides to use a voodoo book to bring him back. Although it didn't completely work, Nathan is led to believe he's fine until he can no longer curb his hunger which causes an outbreak of reanimated people. Jessica, Diggs, and Henry must fend themselves off.
Great cast- David Leon, Samantha Mumba, Sara James, Laurence Kinlan, Tadhg Murphy, Deirdre O'Kane, and Mark Huberman. Worthy!
The gore doesn't really kick off until the end, but it contains many humorous moments, great dialogue and acting, and some original ideas. It could have been much better, but it's still a fun little zombie flick. A good way to kill 2 hours and fill up with popcorn and candy.
Ok take part American Pie add Part zombie flick and sprinkle in some Irish accents and what do you have? This. not the worst zombie movie I've ever seen, rather run of the mill actually. I think it wanted to be the next Shaun of the Dead but failed miserably. I didn't really "laugh out loud" at all during this. There wasn't much humor and it wasn't much horror. It seems to have failed on both fronts. Not to mention the ability to "cure" the affliction was a bit far fetched. I know some may argue that becoming a zombie is far fetched but I'm telling you it's biologically possible and it will happen. There is a bug out there that can take control over an organism and it has the same type of results as zombification. Needless to sa this wasn't a winner and you wouldn't miss out if you decided to skip it.
