The first trailer for Erlingur Thoroddsen’s Child Eater has dropped to support it’s bow at the 2016 Stockhold Film Festival.

Taking its cues from dark fairy tales, the story concerns of simple night of babysitting which takes a horrifying turn when Helen (played by Cait Bliss) realizes that the boogeyman is real and is in little Lucas’ closet.

Child Eater is based on a 2012 short of the same name.

It looks like a jump-scare-in-your-face horror movie. Which we love. We don’t know if it will be in cinemas in South Africa (highly doubt it) but the movie promises to be a lekker Saturday night chill flick when it becomes available online or at the DVD store.
