Something Is Very “The Matter” With This Clip From ‘Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal’

In theaters and on VOD today, April 5 is Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal. Directed by Baran bo Odar, and starring Ulrich Thomsen, Wotan Wilke Möhring, Sebastian Blomberg, Katrin Sass and Burghart Klaussner, we now have a new clip from the film that features a Sheriff interrogating a cannibal and his friend. I haven’t seen this movie, but I’m not sure it’s for me.

When Lars’s art dealer Ronny arranges a teaching job in a small town as a “therapeutic measure” to stir up his creative juices, things don’t quite turn out as planned. At first, life in the peaceful small town seems rosy, as he settles in and impresses beautiful fellow colleague Leslie (Georgina Reilly) by taking in the brawny, mute Eddie (Dylan Smith) after the latter’s caregiver passes away. But Lars soon discovers that the façade of serenity hides something unimaginable: Eddie suffers from a rare form of sleepwalking that transforms him from a docile, cereal-obsessed art student into a ravenous sleepwalkingcannibal. Initially horrified by Eddie’s dark secret, Lars becomes enthralled by the not-so-gentle giant. Exceptional art comes at a very high price…and how far is Lars willing to go for his next masterpiece?

Head inside for a taste.

    This looks weird, quirky and fun. Definitely going to see this one. And hooray, a horror film thats not basing itself around anything paranormal or what not. Sounds original.
