1) The actors could act. Other than a few of the actors who little a little long in the tooth to be playing high school kids, everything was fine.
2) It was nice to see a zombie infestation resulting from a voodoo incident, instead of from outer space or some chemical or viral infection.
3) The plot was good, and didn't stray hardly at all with sub-plots involving secondary characters, unless it tied into the main storyline. Grace is working at a catholic church, cleaning and rehabbing much of the insides and catacombs in the basement levels. She finds the book by accident, and then later when she needs it, she sneaks it out of the church.
4) The blood and gore was plentiful. People are getting killed & eaten left and right on screen for all your gratuitous pleasure. During the blood drenched finale, a character ends up driving what I will call a "tree / wood chipper on wheels" and to fight off the attacking zombie mob, she drives right into it. Many a leg and arm are sent flying as the zombies are pretty much "chewed up and spit out."
5) The zombies in this flick are "Snyder Runners." They don't stalk or shamble, they just run to attack their next victim.
6) The cure, the cure, the cure. There really aren't a lot of zombie flicks where a zombie can be cured after turning. Nathan, the zombie / hero lead whose well-intentioned mom brought back from the dead, is cured of his condition. A few times in the movie, he gave in to his carnal urges and killed and ate a few people.Read more ›
There's enough humor, gore, and likable characters to make this enjoyable. It doesn't exactly reinvent or revitalize the genre, but it makes a pretty good addition.
The emotional torment brought upon by the schoolyard bully or the desire to fit in can't hold a candle to the soul-shredding terror of realizing that your high school sweetheart has become a flesh-eating ghoul, and when a lovelorn teen develops a taste for his fellow classmates, the stage is set for a frightful good time in this horror comedy from director Stephen Bradley. Starring Samantha Mumba.
I bought Boy Eats Girl in a movie six pack DVD at my local Walmart for only five dollars. I wasn't expecting much from the movie. It starts out a little slow for the first twenty minutes, and then I was hooked on it. It is a combination of Shaun of the Dead and My Boyfriend's Back.
I have watched a lot of unconscionably bad horror movies over the past week, and that may have something to do with why I was so taken with Boy Eats Girl, a silly, fun Irish zombedy from screenwriter Derek Landy, who's currently working on bringing the mega-popular Skullduggery Pleasant books to the silver screen. Sure, it has its flaws, but compared to some of the junk I had the misfortune of seeing this week, it's Oscar material. It put me in mind of such classics of stupidity as Night of the Creeps and Beware! The Blob, and I say that with all the affection it sounds like.
Nathan (RocknRolla's David Leon) is an Irish schoolboy with a mad crush on his childhood friend Jessica (Irish pop sensation Samantha Mumba). The night he plans to declare his love for her, egged on by his two lunkheaded friends, a series of badly-interpreted encounters leads Nathan to kill himself instead. Nathan's mother, who's been working on the renovation of a local church, happened to discover an ancient book in the crypt with the power to bring the dead back to life, and so Nathan wakes up the next day very thirsty and with an odd paleness to his skin. Other than that, though, life in high school is no different. Until, that is, the school bully angers Nathan, who ends up not only throwing him halfway across a football field, but chowing down on his insides...
We should probably state right off that Boy Eats Girl is not a horror film, in case you didn't pick that up from the title. This is a high school angst comedy that happens to feature zombies. (The more recent American equivalent, Dance of the Dead, was one of the best American films of 2008.) And that's what makes Boy Eats Girl such an enjoyable excursion; it never really tries to be a horror movie. It knows its limitatons, and it plays to them. Think of it as 10 Things I Hate About You with a dead Patrick. Oh, wait, that's tasteless. But the point still stands. *** ½

Finally, a Manx Zombie film worthy of our attention. Manx means Isle of Mann, the island in the Irish sea with the odd and antique relationship to the rest of the United Kingdom. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Andy McKinney
