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.

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.

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

This would-be cult item runs out of steam after its establishes its wickedly satirical premise.

The results may get muddled when tonal shifts are forced, but Eddie nonetheless entertains with enough originality to forgive its otherwise familiar tropes.

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

[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."

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.

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.

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

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

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