Eaters is a 2011 Italian zombie horror feature film directed by Luca Boni, and Marco Ristori. The movie stars Rosella Elmi, Guglielmo Favilla and Elisa Ferretti.
The world – devastated by the Great Epidemic – is governed by hordes of living dead. Three men – Igor and Alen, two hunters of dead and a scientist, Gyno – try to give an answer to what has happened to the human race.
Alen and Igor leave for two days of hunting to find new ‘guinea-pigs’ for Gyno and meet the most varied characters: a crazy painter, fascists and a mysterious girl, daughter of the feared Plague-Spreader, supposed craftsman of the epidemic.
“It’s great to see two young directors go at a project like this with such gusto. Zombie movies are two-a-penny these days and, while the post-apocalyptic survival scenario is not the most original, the sheer number of sub-plots and different ideas crammed into the film means that there’s something for everyone.” Horror Talk
“Making good use of news footage and flashbacks to effectively create its apocalyptic setting, the film is atmospheric throughout, and whilst the premise is far from fresh, it least looks far better than most other low budget productions.” Beyond Hollywood
