Product Overview

The horror of shcool takes on a whole new meaning. Forget about the threat of the classroom bully the anxiety of the football field or even the dread of being spurned by the girl you fancy: when your schoolmates develop a taste for human flesh it pays to know who your friends are and what they've been eating.

ReviewSource TheUrbanWire
Review Part satire and part romantic-comedy, Boy Eats Girl should be looked upon as a homage to the classic 70s horror genre and not a poor effort at recreating the success of Shaun of the Dead. Hailing from Ireland, the movie takes plenty of liberties in its character's settings and mannerisms. Not wholly European as you'd expect, but it works on most levels, just not so much on the humour however...The plot 'borrows' heavily from a handful of movies, especially the 1993 cult classic, My Boyfriend's Back with virtually the same sub-plot of unrequited love between the unfortunate undead and his high-school sweetheart. As most will use Shaun of the Dead as a touchstone in understanding the film's comedy/gore tandem, it's intended use of black comedy and detached humour falls short...Most satires take themselves too seriously at some point and Boy Eats Girl is no different...From start to end, its campy throwback to nonsensical horror-comedy masks its inability to find its feet and its problematic attempts at satire. Suffering from a painfully short running time and an overly brisk pacing at the end, Boy Eats Girl does not fulfill the potential it has. What it does achieve is a quick and harmless way to spend just over an hour when bored.

BeyondHollywood.com ...a lot here for horror fans to sink their teeth into...gorehounds will choke on the blood and guts. The movie is, in a word, bloody.
HorrorWatch Mix up elements of Shaun of the Dead, Dead and Breakfast, and the Dawn of the Dead remake and you get Ireland's Boy Eats Girl.
