Plot: Lars Olafssen, once a young celebrity in the art world is slipping away fast into the land of has-beens. His long-time art dealer, Ronny, is now an ungracefully aging hipster who desperately wants his meal ticket back. But Lars refuses to paint. His creativity comes at too high a cost - his inspiration is carnage - blood, guts and limbs. Not surprisingly, this lead to a dreadful breakdown in the past. Nevertheless, an eager Ronny arranges a teaching job for Lars at an art school in Koda Lake, a small Canadian town in the middle of nowhere. It's a "therapeutic" measure for Lars - a means to conquer his need to paint in the "safety" of a country retreat... That is, until Eddie comes into his life. Runtime: 90 mins Release Date: 11 Jul 2012
Interesting, good actors and very good director. I really like this film ! Watch it, you won't regret it. This film is entertaining. In addition to receiving international awards , he received fine reviews in the media. Well done. Boris Rodriguez the director offers us a feature film quality. Without revealing the content, I especially like the opening scene of the film with the deer. The art of mixing humor and horror is a difficult art in cinema, Boris Rodriguez delights us with Eddie. I did not know these actors and am pleasantly surprised with their performance. You're gonna like <more>
easily the character of Eddie as Dylan Scott Smith . Horror friendly and humorous moments . I think this is a movie to watch !
This is exactly the shot in the arm that Canadian film needs at the moment. Quiet Revolution Pictures has made it their priority to work with other international companies to create edgy and unique films. Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal is no different. The beginning sets the tone for the whole film. A man tries to navigate himself along a snowy Canadian landscape, and accidentally hits a deer. He pulls over and makes the humane choice to kill the suffering animal, but the only suitable tool at his disposal is a rock. After some initial bestial grunts, the deer is quickly dispatched. The <more>
driver, however, seems to have an odd fascination with the smashed skull and continues to pound the poor deer until he is interrupted by a local policeman. This exquisite and wordless opening provides everything you need to know to our main character Lars. He's lost, embarking on a destructive path, fascinated with bloodshed, and he quickly gets on the wrong side of the town's police force. What follows is the story of a downward spiral that has its share of cringe worthy gore, light hearted humor, and unexpected touching moments. It is an interesting watch and a must- see for those interested in Hollywood-alternative cinema.
I really enjoyed this one when I saw it at the Edinburgh International Film Festival: it's consistently funny, and reminiscent of the UK's Shaun of the Dead, except obviously with a Danish-Canadian spin. I'm not going to bore you with a summary of the film, as you can easily find that elsewhere on this page, but I will say that it was well cast, well acted, and very well paced. Great comedic timing, and a really interesting character dynamic, in that you feel sorry for almost everyone involved; you don't just feel sorry for Eddie, whose cannibalism is almost being taken <more>
advantage of by Lars, but also for Lars, who has trouble finding inspiration, and Lesley, who doesn't understand why he's acting so strangely. That makes for a really compelling story, which is wrapped up perfectly at the end. I left the cinema very satisfied, and it's one of my highlights from the whole festival.
Great debut feature from an up and coming director. (by geodrake-71-627198)
With a title like that, how could I resist! This is the first feature film from director Boris Rodriguez who, on the strength of this movie, I predict great things from in the future. Mixing horror with comedy is a delicate balance. Here though, equilibrium is mostly achieved. Humour is genuinely funny whilst Eddie's kills are suitably gruesome. Lars Olafssen, Thure Lindhart an artist who's slipped from the limelight he once graced, takes a job at an art school in an isolated Canadian town called Koda Lake. He's been very unproductive recently, to the annoyance of his quote <more>
spewing agent the wonderful Stephen McHattie . At his new home, Olafssen unwittingly finds himself taking in Eddie; a lovable mute with learning difficulties who's been left homeless after the death of his aunt; a major patron of the art school. Eddie is shy and good natured, apart from his habit of going on sleepwalking killing sprees when he's under emotional stress. Olafssen finds this bloodletting to be his muse, enabling him to start painting again. But will he keep encouraging Eddie's homicidal wanderings in order to keep up his own productivity? And how long will it be before sardonic Police Chief Verner Paul Braunstein catches up with the duo? Casting for this movie is near perfect. Rodriguez wanted a natural star for the role of Olafssen. Unable to find any in his native country, he looked abroad and found Lindhart; who manages to purvey his character so well that even when he's manipulating Eddie into ripping folk apart, the audience still roots for him. Eddie is played by Dylan Smith also known as Dylan Scott Smith . He gives Eddie's two natures such distinctiveness that sometimes it's hard to equate the Eddie smeared in blood chasing victims with the Eddie who sits quietly and smiles bashfully when his paintings are praised. Smith and Lindhardt are an effective team. When Olfassen deliberately tries to upset Eddie so that he goes out to kill it is genuinely unpleasant as we can believe that Eddie loves him. Look out for Smith in the 2012 'Total Recall', where he has a small role. Another important character is Lesley Georgina Reilly , who also teaches at the art school. She provides Olafssen's love interest, drawn to him by his former fame and how the paintings he's suddenly producing are financing the school's survival. There's nothing particularly noteworthy about Reilly's handling of the role, but importantly, she holds her own with the leads. Humour is jet black farce and surrealism, helped along with some snappy dialogue; especially from Chief Verner. Only once does the comedy fail – the voice-over during the beginning of the closing credits felt too silly and at odds with the rest of the movie. I also thought the end plot twist was unnecessary Interestingly, the original script had a writer getting inspiration from the killings of a werewolf he befriends. Rodriguez drew inspiration from David Lynch's high tone approach to horror and the performances in the Cohen Brother's 1996 release 'Fargo' whilst directing. If you are a fan of horror movies, or dark comedies you are almost guaranteed to enjoy this film. Rodriguez has been so taken with the reception horror lovers have given his work that he now plans to work in the genre again. Let's hope he does.
EDDIE: THE SLEEPWALKING CANNIBAL pretty mush says it all; you gets what you pays for. While it's beautifully crafted from beginning to end, EDDIE ultimately lacks that little something extra that distinguishes good movies from Great ones. If SHAUN OF THE DEAD or JUAN OF THE DEAD didn't milk the notion of zombies for all it was worth, then they certainly set the bar a bit high for anyone who followed in their footsteps. Sure, technically speaking, EDDIE isn't so much a zombie movie as a movie about a sleepwalking cannibal, but that's just six of one, half a dozen of the other, <more>
right? Midway through, EDDIE begins to get rather predictable and one can see the end coming, but the performances especially by Lindstadt and Braunstein are outstanding and the aforementioned craftsmanship is undeniable. Worth a look.
