Somewhere in the middle of nowhere, USA: Helen (Cait Bliss) is to babysit young Lucas (Colin Critchley), a bit of a weird boy who seems to be unfazed by the horror film they're watching together, but is afraid of a "monster in the closet", something he ties to a creepy man he has seen wandering the woods time and again and who he's sure is out to get him ...

The house Lucas and his dad (Weston Wilson) are living in has a very creepy history though, as it was once inhabited by Robert Bowery, a blind man who has come to the belief that he would see again if he ate the eyes of preferably young children. And while he might have been blind, he knew the surroundings like no other and had very acute hearing, and was thus very effective in tracking down his prey - until one girl, Ginger, got away ...

As it's almost customary for babysitters it seems, Helen receives a visit from her boyfriend Tom (Dave Klasko), and that somehow ticks off Lucas - and then all of a sudden he's gone. And while initially Helen and Tom still think he has just run off and is hiding somewhere close, more and more evidence points to him having been abducted by Robert Bowery, who apparently hasn't died after all - and then he kills Tom, and on the run from him, Helen stumbles upon Ginger (Melinda Chilton), now a grown-up who has set out to defeat Bowery - only problem is she's bat-shit crazy and might do more harm than good. So Helen finds herself between a rock and a hard place, and she knows she has to do everything to save little Lucas, too ...

 

Ok, in story alone, Child Eater is your rather typical slasher flick with a few especially macabre details attached - but that's not doing the film proper justice, actually: For one, Child Eater is dead serious, so no post-modern genre re-interpretation, so eye-winking injokes for genre fans, no camp moments, silly oneliners or gore effects for the gore's sake. Instead the film is strong on characters and treats the story as a whole more like a mature thriller than a simple stalk-and-slash revue, favouring suspense over effect, atmosphere over shocks (though there are plenty of those still. So even if slashers are totally not your thing, you might enjoy this!
