Novella McClure is like most struggling actresses in Los Angeles: she’s in her early 30s, her fake name sounded cooler ten years ago, and she hasn’t landed a role in three years. To top it all off, she’s developed a disturbing habit of eating her own flesh. Novella desperately tries to hide her strange condition from her motherly landlord, Eesha, and somewhat psychopathic best friend, Candice, but her body and mind continue to deteriorate in the depressing world of failed auditions and sketchy night clubs. Can a romantic relationship with her psychiatrist prevent her from self destruction? Or will her fatal habit continue to eat away at her?
EAT tells the story of the unsuccessful actress Novella McClure how hasn’t landed a role in three years. Someday she starts to eating her own flesh and developing a bloody cannibalistic addiction. With his first feature length movie delivers director Jimmy Weber a strong mix between gory horror and deep human drama. Main actress Meggie Maddock gives a very, a VERY strong performance as a young woman how falls deeper and deeper into a dark addiction. Another strong point of the movie is the way the story is told. Thanks full the movie takes his time to work out a realistic scenario and becomes after that more and more dark. To the finale some very great gore scenes comes up how are not easy to watch.
