A Canadian/Danish co-production, Eddie – The Sleepwalking Cannibal tells the story of Lars (Thure Lindhardt), a one-time painting protégée who has just taken a teaching post at a struggling art school in remote Koda Lake. Once there, Lars falls for the school’s resident sculptress (Georgina Reilly) and befriends disabled student Eddie (Dylan Smith), offering to take the latter in in an attempt to endear Lesley and appease the school’s principal benefactor. When he discovers that Eddie not only sleepwalks but eats people in the process, he finds the inspiration to begin painting again, covering his tenant’s tracks in order to re-live his glory days and reclaim his reputation.

If the film’s setting is purely Canadian (with Koda Lake an amalgamation of Eastern Ontario, Ottowa and Quebec), then its tone is distinctly Scandanavian, evoking comparisons to the sardonic likes of Troll Hunter and Jo Nesbo’s Headhunters. »
