Boy Eats Girl (2005)

A depressive son is brought back to life through a voodoo ritual by his mother, who accidentally knocked the chair from beneath his feet when he was contemplating hanging himself. The newly-undead high schooler returns to class with only two things on his mind: meat, and meat. It isn't long before Nathan has infected half of the school while trying to win back his girlfriend. While it is humorous at times, the film would not be classified as a Horror Comedy. BOY EATS GIRL touches on serious notes like teen suicide, depression, and loss of individuality without becoming forceful on any of the topics. Once the premise has been established, though, the characters and plot are left with no where to go as they become caught in an exhaustive game of cat and mouse. Unlike most other teen zombie flicks, this entry offers a dark and somber mood that refrains from falling in to self-parody. Add to that a few key scenes of bloody violence, and BOY EATS GIRL manages to drum up enough interest to warrant a viewing.

Rating: 7/10.
Gore: 6/10.
Number of views: 1.

  2. I always thought this one seemed a little too depressing -- you know we at the Farm like a good laugh.
