Erlingur Thoroddsen: Child Eater

Please tell us about the film.

Child Eater is an old-school type of horror film about Helen, a babysitter battling a bogeyman out in the woods after he abducts Lucas, the little kid she’s been watching. And this particular bogeyman likes to eat the eyes of children to keep himself from going blind. The idea was to make a fun – but also scary – movie that could appeal both to people who are big fans of the horror genre as well as people who maybe don’t watch horror movies that much . . .
