How far are you willing to go for the sake of art? Lars Olafssen was once a promising artist, but the luster of that short rise to fame has now faded, and he’s hiding out in small town Canada, taking on a job teaching art to children. This is where he meets Eddie, a mute man-child who likes to draw and harbours a dark secret. Check out the film’s title and you’ll know what I’m getting at.
Suddenly and shockingly inspired to paint by Eddie’s nocturnal adventures, Lars is torn between their friendship and the rush of creative juices as Eddie’s behavior spirals out of control.
EDDIE: THE SLEEPWALKING CANNIBAL does well to balance quirky comedy with bloody violence, and ultimately ask us, how far would you go?
“A unique and satirical dark comedy, Eddie – the Sleepwalking Cannibal masterfully balances its quirky humor and its cartoonish eruptions of grotesque violence as Lars finds himself torn between his duty to his friend and his duty to his work. As the situation gets increasingly out of control, Eddie remains ultimately a story about friendship, and also a story about art—and how far into the abyss one is willing to go for either.” – Cara Cusumano (Tribeca Film Festival)
Smart horror satire films are a joy to watch and EDDIE is a great example. It is a tongue in cheek look at the inspirational process behind art combined with a story about friendship yet also contains enough blood to please the horror fans. – John Allison
