User Reviews

From bad to worse.
22 June 2018 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

Well, the least I can say after watchin Child Eater is that I am not impressed at all. The poster looked like it could be something creepy but in the end it's just mediocre. Not only the story, but also the acting. It was just not that great, to say it politely. It might be a low budget movie, and there is nothing wrong with that, but that doesn't mean it has to be of mediocre quality, and unfortunately it is. The end, where the climax should be and where it normally always is, is sometimes so dumb you wonder how they come up with it. How the hell can you be afraid of a blind evil creature? How can you not outrun that or just kill it easely? All questions that you will have at one point, and for that alone Child Eater is just a stupid movie.
