Child Eater - 2012 - 6/10
“I’m telling you, there’s a man in my closet!”
Ever was it so, the babysitter ignores the frightened child.
This brief shocker piles it on.
Dark fairy tales, childhood trauma, the horny, dismissive boyfriend.
Dialogue muffled at times, good camerawork, inventive use of meager budget.
Unsettling horror, especially for parents of young children.
Writer / director Erlingur Thoroddsen is now moving into features.
