Storyline

Single mother Grace is working in an ancient church restoring it and finds a hidden crypt that contains a book of resurrection. Father Cornelius asks her to go home and forget her findings. Her son Nathan is a sensitive and shy teenager bullied by Samson at school. He has a crush on his friend Jessica, but he does not declare his love to her. His best friends Diggs and Henry schedule a date for Nathan with Jessica, however her father grounds her in her bedroom and when Nathan calls Jessica, her father tells him that she has gone on a date with a good looking guy in a car. Jessica sneaks out through the window, but Nathan and Jessica fail to meet up with each other. When Jessica takes a ride in Kenneth's car, Nathan mistakenly believes that she is dating the schoolmate. He goes home, drinks whiskey and puts a rope around his neck. When Grace comes home, she opens Nathan's bedroom door and accidentally hangs her son. She then resurrects Nathan, but soon finds that something went wrong ... Written by Darkwalker173

Harmless comedy fun
16 April 2006 | by SteveRaccoonSee all my reviews

Boy Eats Girl is the kind of film to watch when you're in a non-committal mood, something that demands only vague attention and which doesn't try to be clever. If you want a horror or a zombie movie then look elsewhere, it's neither nor does it try to be.

It is a comedy, let's get it straight right now, not a zombie film. Romero's legacy to pop culture and the film industry certainly gets a good outing here, but this isn't a film to make gorehounds feel fat and happy, nor will zombie purists find anything to debate over.

A lot of the characters are like those from sappy American Teen comedies but with Irish accents and in situations involving blood and throw-away limbs.

Perhaps this helps: It's California Man with gore.

It entertained me for the short running time (about an hour I made it) and I liked it enough to cough up £5 for it. If you give it a chance as a silly gory comedy, you may well like it too.
