Storyline

Lars Olafssen, once a young celebrity in the art world is slipping away fast into the land of has-beens. His long-time art dealer, Ronny, is now an ungracefully aging hipster who desperately wants his meal ticket back. But Lars refuses to paint. His creativity comes at too high a cost - his inspiration is carnage - blood, guts and limbs. Not surprisingly, this lead to a dreadful breakdown in the past. Nevertheless, an eager Ronny arranges a teaching job for Lars at an art school in Koda Lake, a small Canadian town in the middle of nowhere. It's a "therapeutic" measure for Lars - a means to conquer his need to paint in the "safety" of a country retreat... That is, until Eddie comes into his life. Written by dobbinnian / rodriguez

EDDIE: THE SLEEPWALKING CANNIBAL pretty mush says it all; you gets what you pays for. While it's beautifully crafted from beginning to end, EDDIE ultimately lacks that little something extra that distinguishes good movies from Great ones. If SHAUN OF THE DEAD or JUAN OF THE DEAD didn't milk the notion of zombies for all it was worth, then they certainly set the bar a bit high for anyone who followed in their footsteps. Sure, technically speaking, EDDIE isn't so much a zombie movie as a movie about a sleepwalking cannibal, but that's just six of one, half a dozen of the other, right? Midway through, EDDIE begins to get rather predictable and one can see the end coming, but the performances (especially by Lindstadt and Braunstein) are outstanding and the aforementioned craftsmanship is undeniable. Worth a look.
