Just over a year after going into production (see our earlier story here), news reaches us that Optimum Releasing have now confirmed a theatrical release for Stephen Bradley's romcomzom Boy Eats Girl throughout Ireland on September 23rd, with a UK release to follow shortly after. It is also hoped the film will premiere in the US early next year.
Boy Eats Girl - described as a 'comedy horror about a teenage date that goes disastrously wrong, bringing bloody mayhem to suburbia' - stars Samantha The Time Machine Mumba and David Leon, was written by Derek Landy and directed by Stephen Bradley on a reported budget of around $5 milllion
You can check out a great trailer for the film (complete with Batman-esque 'thought' bubbles) and see some cool images from the movie if you visit the official website at www.boyeatsgirl.com. The site also contains details of all the Irish cinemas that will be showing the film come September 23rd.
"The night 17-year old Nathan Maguire chooses to tell Jessica that he is in love with her is the night he dies. Fortunately, through the ancient power of Voodoo, his mother brings him back from the dead. But he's not the same. He can't feel pain. He has no pulse, and he has a strange desire to eat human flesh.
One careless bite in a fight with the school bully and the infection spreads. The town is soon being torn apart by teenage zombies and Nathan is the only one who can save his friends and Jessica before he turns against them."
