FILM -- Boy Eats Girl


This movie was originally released in 2005, but it was overseas...so I didn't get to see it til about 2008. Anyhow! The main character is Nathan and he is an unpopular student who is also a no-one-really-cares-about-me athlete. He's in love with his life long friend Jennifer, played by Samantha Mumba. Nathan decides one night to FINALLY confess his love. Whelp, unfortunately on the night he plans to confess, he goes to meet Jennifer at a secret location but there is some type of conflict between Jennifer and her father.

So, Nathan leaves the secret location. Right after Nathan leaves, Jennifer sneaks out of her house and goes to meet Nathan. But when she reaches the location, Nathan isn't there. What she ends up finding is a crumbled piece of paper. Jennifer leaves and catches a ride from a classmate who's known to be somewhat of ladies' man. Nathan is walking home in the rain when he sees his Jennifer in this compromising situation!

Well, Nathan goes home and is killed in an accident involving his Mom. Blunt? Yeah. Sorry. Anyway, Nathan's mother, not wanting to lose her son, uses an old pagan spell book hidden within the walls of a church to bring her son back, which OF COURSE comes with consequences! The next morning, Nathan is fine...well, that is before he has the symptoms of the undead and an unwavering craving for human flesh.

This movie was directed by Stephen Bradley and stars: David Leon, Samantha Mumba, Tadhg Murphy, Laurence Kinlan, Sara James, Mark Huberman, Sarah Burke, Paul Reid, Jane Valentine, Conor Ryan, Deirdre O’Kane, Doreen Keogh and, last but not least, Bryan Murray!










I was interested in seeing this movie, honestly for the title. BUT not in a sexual way, I knew it was a zombie flick! Personally, I always like teen/zombie related horror movies. If zombies were in my High School, I would have had so much more fun!

Anyhow, it's not a BAD movie, it's just very playful. I liked it. It does have some corny dialogue but it fits the film. Also, it does have plenty of blood, guts & gore! I think this could actually be a great date movie. :P

  1. Clever title. :) Sounds like there's a lot of drama at the high school in this movie!

    By the way, I thought of a remake I liked: True Grit.

  2. I saw this movie years ago and liked it, I just recently had Cian watch it with me and he was like, "that was a waste" but I thought it was still cute and I like the solution to the zombie virus. I also love Irish accents!

  4. I think I was a bit harsher on this than you were - looking back it doesn't seem so bad, but at the time I didn't enjoy most of it. Check me out at

  5. @Justine it was a fun movie! You can tell by the title. :P I haven't seen True Grit. But what did you like it?

    @Random Girl Irish accents are so awesome. I'm so bad at doing one though...I want a real Irish accent. ;\

    @Lisa Fee it's a playful zombie movie. ;)

    @DrBlacksteed I can respect your opinion!

    @Damon. Thanks for reading.

  7. Well, the movie was as gritty as its title suggests. The acting was convincing, and I cared about the characters. The movie was rough and emotional. The characters were multidimensional, so they seemed like real people. That movie is one of the less sugar coated ones I've ever watched. When I was done watching True Grit, I felt the way I did after watching No Country for Old Men. I was left with serious thoughts I mulled over for days!

  9. Playful sounds good.

    If you haven't seen it, there's one out there called Wasting Away that's also pretty playful. About this group of kids who eat neon green ice cream (laced with some chemical) and die, don't realize they have become Zombies, and wander around trying to understand why everyone acts so strange around them. BEG sounds fun, though. I'll check it out.

  10. I'm pretty sure "Boy eats Girl" is also a porno. :D BTW this movie looks delightfully cheesy and I must see it!
