CHILD EATER REVIEWED
“Child Eater” follows a lone babysitter, as she’s tired of watching the biggest brat on the planet. Unfortunately, he’s wandered off into the woods as tales of a Child Eater bounce around the local area. Is this supernatural killer real? Does he actually eat the eyes of children to stave off going blind? Will any of this scare a viewer over the age of 13? The answer is a swift…meh.
While not terribly dumb, there’s nothing about this film that creates any sort of memorable impact. While the cast is strong enough and I enjoy the basic bones of the film, it’s just such nothing. After taking the time to hunt down the original short film, I feel that brevity was this story’s greatest ally. When stretched to 82 minutes, it becomes a bit much.
