Child Eater started off as a short film, kicked some ass, won some awards and now it’s a full length feature from director Erlingur Thoroddsen. The film is said to be “a creepy, stylish roller-coaster ride inspired by the classic horror films of the 1980’s.” I’m sure that’s something we can all get behind and judging from the teaser below, it’s looking to be just that. The creature of the child eater itself looks like a cross between Nosferatu and the zombies from Shock Waves… or is that just me? Child Eater is coming to DVD, Digital and VOD on March 28th.
In Child Eater, little Lucas (Colin Critchley) goes missing from his bedroom in the middle of the night, his babysitter Helen (Cait Bliss) ventures out into the deep, dark woods armed only with a flashlight. But these are no ordinary woods. They were once the home of Robert Bowery (Jason Martin), a serial killer who years ago came for children’s eyes in order to keep himself from going blind. But Robert Bowery was stopped and killed… or was he?
