Boy Eats Girl (2005) movie

Boy Eats Girl (2005)

Director: Stephen Bradley
Writer(s): Derek Landry
Genre: Comedy, Horror, Zombies
Rating: 4

Inspiration: Weekly Zombies - check out September Zombies for more zombie posts and this work for my Helluva Halloween challenge too


A boy declares his love for his girlfriend, only to die the same night. He is brought back to life by his mother as a flesh-craving zombie, who sires more teen undead while trying to control his, er, appetite for his beloved.

Zombie speed: fast

Zombification: first zombie created with voodoo and then others formed by being bitten

Zombie mode: feral except for the voodoo one who zombifies at a slower rate

My thoughts:
In-a-word(s): nothing like a mother's love


Teen raging hormones and zombie flesh eating tendencies are no different in Ireland. Yes, along with fairy inhabitants there are zombies in Ireland. ;-D

This flick had enough zombie action to keep you entertained. The gore factor was low but funny in keeping with its campy feel.

Ewww moment: lawn mower segment

Interesting to note: the girl the guy ends up falling for in this movie and in the German film I reviewed earlier, Night of the Living Dorks, are non-white. I like seeing these racial mixes.

*Forgot to mention: there is a cool part I liked which was when zombification of the main character takes place. Flashes of scenes and sounds were used effectively.

  1. I didn't make it through this movie the first time I watched. I was bored and it didn't really hold my attention. I think I'll give it another chance because of your review. Thanks, Velvet!
