Kickstart Sunday: CHILD EATER

  • Save
As a big supporter of independent horror, how can I not promote a film titled Child Eater?  Based on the previously Kickstarted short film, a feature length version from director Erlingur Thoroddsen is in the works, but it needs your help to get off the ground.

This Kickstarter project currently has 12 days to go with a goal of $15,000.  Click here to show your support and hit the jump for more info and to watch the original short.


CHILD EATER takes place over the course of one very long night. Helen isn’t thrilled about babysitting little Lucas and it certainly doesn’t make it any easier that he’s convinced he hears breathing coming from his closet. But it’s just his imagination, right?
When Helen goes upstairs to check on Lucas late at night, she’s shocked to find an empty bed. Lucas is missing … and his closet door is wide open. Now she’s got no choice but to follow his trail deep into the woods, the same woods where, decades earlier, an infamous serial killer preyed on children and ate their eyes in order to keep himself from going blind.
Needless to say, Helen is in for quite a ride …

Here’s the original short film:
