First Details on Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal


Art and synopsis for the horror-comedy

One of the many films being repped at the Marché du Film in Cannes is Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal, director Boris Rodriguez’s horror-comedy.

The Canadian production stars Dylan Smith, Thure Lindhardt, Georgina Reilly, Alain Goulem and Pontypool‘s Stephen McHattie.

Lars Olafssen, once a young celebrity in the art world is slipping away fast into the land of has-beens. His long-time art dealer, Ronny, is now an ungracefully aging hipster who desperately wants his meal ticket back. But Lars refuses to paint. His creativity comes at too high a cost – his inspiration is carnage – blood, guts and limbs. Not surprisingly, this lead to a dreadful breakdown in the past. Nevertheless, an eager Ronny arranges a teaching job for Lars at an art school in Koda Lake, a small Canadian town in the middle of nowhere. It’s a “therapeutic” measure for Lars – a means to conquer his need to paint in the “safety” of a country retreat… That is, until Eddie comes into his life.

This is Rodriguez’s feature debut. Stay tuned for release plans as they come in!
