Officer Bannerman is assigned to watch after the police station with two other officers during the night. Things go routinely until a person is brought into holding, who is supposedly responsible for over thirty "Silence of the Lambs"-style killings. Now, as things go from odd to frightening, Bannerman must determine just who is who because this Cajun killer may be more than just a mere cannibal. Written by bioguyver43

Fear Itself: Eater (2008)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Elisabeth Moss plays a policewoman who is obsessed with horror movies and gets a big thrill when a serial killer is captured and thrown into her jail. This killer not only slaughters men and women but he's infamous for eating them and soon the policewoman starts to notice that something isn't quite right in the jail as her co-workers seem not to be their real selves. This is an extremely well made film from Gordon who is best known for Re-Animator and he doesn't shy away from the gore here. For being shown on Network television I was rather shocked at how much blood and violence they allowed in the film especially scenes where the killer is shown eating his victims. Gordon does a superb job with his direction and really creates some nice suspense mixed in with all the blood. The ending is extremely well done and Gordon also manages to make a film that doesn't also rely on laughs. This was the first time I had seen moss in anything but she really caught my eye and delivered a very good performance. She fits the role of the horror fan very well and she comes off quite natural as an actress so I wouldn't mind seeing more of her. The supporting cast are pretty good as well. I've never been a die-hard fan of Gordon's work as I find some of his films to be overrated but I was highly impressed here.
