showtimes and tickets

Thure Lindhardt (Keep the Lights On) stars in this quirky horror-comedy as Lars, a former darling of the art scene slipping away into the land of has-beens and struggling with lack of inspiration.

When Lars’ 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 by taking in the brawny, mute Eddie 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 sleepwalking cannibal. Initially horrified by Eddie’s dark secret, Lars becomes enthralled by the not-so-gentle giant: at long last, here’s the muse he’d been searching for! Exceptional art comes at a very high price...and how far is Lars willing to go for his next masterpiece?

"Boris Rodriguez's inspired first feature strikes just the right balance between camp horror and clever satire. Absurdly satisfying!" - Eric Hynes, Village Voice

"Pure fun from its first moment to its last. Lindhardt is superb. Eddie has "future cult film" written all over it." - Peter Gutierrez, Twitch Film

"Terrifically funny!" - Indiewire

"Outrageous." - Wall Street Journal
