      dave s When a Danish artist arrives in a snow-covered Canadian town to accept a job at the local school, he finds himself saddled with an unexpected roommate, a lumbering mute who happens to be a sleepwalking cannibal. Despite the bizarre premise and the unpromising title, Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal turns out to be better than expected, a bone-dry comedy covered in blood and viscera. That's not to say that it's great (or even worthy of a recommendation), but it does have some laughs and more than enough ugliness to satisfy the gore hounds. While you get the distinct vibe that it may have been better off as an offbeat Canadian sitcom, it's not a horrible way to waste eighty minutes of your time. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member An Entertaining Horror Comedy. Better than most movies Hollywood makes nowadays. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member That was actually a surprisingly fresh take on a tired, worn out genre. At least the premise is sound. The light, and dry, but black humor was what made it appealing. I'd say give it a go. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Really enjoyed "Eddie The Sleepwalking Cannibal". It's well paced with a few gross bits to keep the gorehoundz happy. Overall a fun and entertaining movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member A strong premise with some great beats. It never enthralls or pushes the momentum to far, but was worth the watch. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Quirky original ooey gooey goodness! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Ben Sachs Chicago Reader This deliberately tasteless horror-comedy might appeal to gore hounds and fans of gross-out humor; but as with many films that strive for cult status, any potential exploitation-movie pleasures are overwhelmed by an air of smug self-awareness. Apr 25, 2013 Full Review Brian Tallerico HollywoodChicago.com Boris Rodriguez's movie sadly ends up being neither an effective horror movie nor a memorable satire. It just kind of, pardon me for going there, sleepwalks through its clever set-up. Rated: 2.5/5.0 Apr 25, 2013 Full Review Boyd van Hoeij Variety Thankfully, Lindhardt keeps things together with an appealing performance that constantly oscillates between drama and very light, dry humor without sacrificing the slightly otherworldly nature of his character. Apr 5, 2013 Full Review Patrick Cavanaugh The Wolfman Cometh Seamlessly blends together horror and comedy to make for an experience as original as its title. Rated: 4/5 Sep 20, 2023 Full Review David Bax Battleship Pretension Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal clearly had the inspiration but it lacks the stomach for the follow-through. Mar 17, 2021 Full Review Nicholas Bell IONCINEMA.com While the film never quite manages to go deeper than a superficial tongue-in-cheek trifling, there are enough oddly fascinating elements to sustain interest.
