The red stuff saves this one.
1 September 2008 | by (Happy Land, who lives in a Gumdrop House on Lolly Pop Lane) – See all my reviews

Story about a teenager who accidentally kicks the bucket, but only to return as a zombie like teenager. Thirst for blood and need for human flesh included. Throw in some lovey dovey side-plot crap and you basically have Boy Eats Girl.

The flick most importantly, isn't that bad. It's actually kinda entertaining. With a decent amount of grue and silly Irish teen humor, it ain't that bad.

But the flick just wasn't that memorable. With alright gore, alright acting, and alright ideas being presented, it just doesn't grab you like a comedy or a horror should. It wasn't truly funny or scary. It's basically a rehash of everything you've probably seen before in the Zom/Com/Rom sub-genre.

I can tell you one thing, there was a female character in this flick, that desperately needed to get naked. But she did not. She played the bitchy slut, and showed off her cleav throughout. I guess the makers thought they were making a flick that didn't need it. Wrong. Note to all horror film-makers everywhere: If you're gonna have a slutty chick in a movie (with big tits in this case), have her show some damn skin. Only good can come from this.

Boys Eats Girl is a pretty damn average RomZomCom flick that was entertaining based solely on the amount of blood it spilled. But where it matters, like in the laugh and chills department, it just didn't get it done. Though it is recommendable, it has a "teen movie" charm, uses a slightly different approach to zombie flicks and, yep, the blood.
