Part muse. Part sleepwalking cannibal.
A once-famous painter rediscovers inspiration when he befriends a sleepwalking cannibal. When I Found Eddie the Sleepwalking Cannibal, I knew from the tittle and the film being a Dark Comedy, I wanted to share it with all my readers on The Movie Guide Blog.

Synopsis of Eddie the Sleepwalking Cannibal:
Lars Olafssen, once a young celebrity in the art world is slipping away fast into the land of has-beens. His long-time art dealer, Ronny, is now an ungracefully aging hipster who desperately wants his meal ticket back. But Lars refuses to paint. His creativity comes at too high a cost – his inspiration is carnage – blood, guts and limbs. Not surprisingly, this lead to a dreadful breakdown in the past. Nevertheless, an eager Ronny arranges a teaching job for Lars at an art school in Koda Lake, a small Canadian town in the middle of nowhere. It’s a “therapeutic” measure for Lars – a means to conquer his need to paint in the “safety” of a country retreat… That is, until Eddie comes into his life.
