Boy Eats Girl Review
Synopsis:A boy declares his love for his girlfriend, only to die the same night. He is brought back to life by his mother as a flesh-craving zombie, who sires more teen undead while trying to control his, er, appetite for his beloved.
Boy Eats Girl (2005) is a comedy horror movie that was filmed in the Republic of Ireland, UK. Director Stephen Bradley (Noble (2014), Sweety Barrett (1998), No, No, No (2003)) did a fantastic job executing this movie. Boy Eats Girl contains sexual references and sexual content, violence, gore, bad language, frightening scenes, thrills, suspense and zombies. One of the gory scenes was when Jessica uses a tractor to kill the zombies.
Grace (Deirdre O’Kane) finds a hidden crypt in a secret passageway one day while working at the historic town church and later finds a voodoo book. She was interrupted by Father Cornelius (Lalor Roddy). Grace’s son, Nathan (David Leon) secretly likes his friend Jessica (Samantha Mumba) whom he has known for a very long time. They both attend a nearby school together, and Nathan is scared of Jessica rejecting him and ruining their friendship, so he chose not to confront her about his feelings. Samson (Mark Huberman) confronts Nathan and warns him to stay away from his girlfriend Cheryl (Sara James) after seeing his girlfriend talking to Nathan in a flirtatious way. Nathan’s friends Henry (Laurence Kinlan) and Diggs (Tadhg Murphy) are furious with him not telling Jessica how he really feels and force them to meet each other after school. Jessica sneaks out of her home after her father forbids her to leave while Nathan writes what he will say to Jessica while waiting for her at an old shack in the middle of nowhere. Nathan is confused by Jessica not showing up or being late and leaves a note behind. Jessica found the note, but it was a little too late as Nathan went home and started drinking whiskey because he wanted to hang himself but changed his mind. As he changed his mind, his mom entered his room and knocked the chair over that he was standing on to hang himself causing him actually to be hanged.
Nathan’s mom was so distraught for causing her son to die that she went to the church and used the voodoo book to bring her son back to life. Father Cornelius warns Grace that all those who are brought back to life by the book will eat human flesh. Nathan does not remember what happened to him and went on to having somewhat of a normal day at school with super strength and feels no pain. Jessica asks Nathan out, and he declines because he believes what he heard Kenneth telling his friends about what Jessica did the night before. The movie got interesting at this point when the students went back to the school for a school dance. Cheryl dances with Nathan and then kissed him, but Nathan was feeling the urges that the priest spoke about. He runs away, and Sampson follows him in a rage that lead to Sampson fighting him and getting bit. Needless to say, Sampson turns into a zombie and starts the trend of turning others into zombies and walla - we got a zombie movie that is not filled with too much zombies.
If you would like to know how this movie ends then by all means, please watch it with an open mind and enjoy. It is a great movie that was made in 2005. I was so smiling at the end of this movie. I gave this movie a six because the setting, acting; cinematography and sound effect were good but not excellent. The movie had potential, but it reminds me too much of My Boyfriend’s Back (1993) and Ginger Snaps (2000).
