Mildly interesting, but ultimately doesn't work
8 August 2015 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

It isn't every day that you get to see a feature film from Ireland. And it especially isn't every day that a feature film from Ireland turns out to be a horror comedy. That's what "Boy Eats Girl" is, but it turns out to be neither fish nor fowl. When it comes to comedy, the movie does have a few mildly humorous moments, but for the most part the movie isn't especially funny - it's either serious or the humor is so low key it almost isn't there. When it comes to horror, the movie does have a few somewhat pleasing bloody moments, particularly the climatic scene that in part rips off the climax of the Peter Jackson film "Dead Alive". But the horror for the most part isn't particularly bloody or chilling to observe. Looking at the comedy and the horror of the movie, I think I see what ultimately sinks the movie - it's directed in a way that lacks bite. The movie is too low key to frighten or induce giggles from the audience. And despite only lasting 80 minutes long, it moves somewhat slowly. It doesn't help that the movie also has a pretty cheap feeling to it, though I guess it looks okay for what had to be a rock bottom budget. The best part of the movie is the cast - they have charm and talent, and you get interested in them even though they are a bit too old to be playing high school students. They make the movie somewhat bearable to watch despite its many shortcomings. I can't recommend the movie, but I'll admit I've seen much worse.
