On Valentine’s Day there really was no other zombie film I could bring for Zombie Film Friday but Boy Eats Girl. It’s a 2005 film out of the UK that took the ZomCom to the next level by adding a little Rom. It’s cute and funny and even a little core at times—a perfect zombie film for Valentine’s Day!
The restorer and single mother Grace is working in an ancient church and she finds a hidden crypt with a voodoo book of resurrection. However, Father Cornelius asks her to go home and forget her findings. Her son Nathan is a sensitive and shy teenager bullied by Samson at school. He has a crush on his friend Jessica, but he does not declare to her. His best friends Diggs and Henry schedule a date of Jessica with Nathan. However her father grounds her in her bedroom and when Nathan calls Jessica, her father tells that she has dated a good looking guy in a car. Jessica flees through the window, but Nathan and Jessica fail to meet each other. Jessica takes a ride in Kenneth’s car and Nathan believes that she is dating the schoolmate. He goes home, drinks whiskey and puts a rope around his neck. When Grace comes home, she opens Nathan’s bedroom door and accidentally she hangs her son. Grace resurrects Nathan, but soon she finds that something did not work out when her son bites Samson and…

I think I remember this! Yes–I definitely remember the hanging scene. I’m reminded of My Boyfriend’s back…and that odd scene in Better Off Dead where the mom pushes her vacuum into the garage just as John Cusack talks himself out of hanging himself. Dark comedy ensues as he tries to regain his footing. Do you remember that?
There’s a Cusack film I haven’t seen?? How is that possible?? I’m going to have to rectify that soon! Thanks Michelle 🙂
Enjoy it–it’s my favorite of his. 🙂
I’m definitely going to look for it 🙂
