Review: Boy Eats Girl

Boy Eats Girl (2005) **1/2 out of 5 asterisks
Director: Stephen Bradley
Cast: Samantha Mumba, David Leon

This Irish zombie movie (yes, you read that correctly) ignores the all-important horror film rule that someone must be murdered within the first 5 minutes. And that's the film's main flaw: it takes far too long for the movie to get interesting. But once it does (more than halfway in) it's an entertaining, gory, dark comedy in the vein of Shawn of the Dead, Slither, and Black Sheep (although not as good as any of those movies). The title alone gives you enough plot that you could fast-forward to the good parts without missing anything.
