Cool Horror Videos: Trailer for SXSW horror short Child Eater

About to premiere at the highly-anticipated SXSW film fest is CHILD EATER, a horror short about... well, the title kind of says it all. And what's not to like about a boogeyman who chomps on children? Admit it, you're already smiling.

The short was written and directed by Erlingur Thoroddsen and produced by Perri Nemiroff. Hopefully soon after SXSW concludes, we'll be able to share the entire short, but until that time feast your eyeballs on the trailer.

It’s a typical night of babysitting little Lucas – tuck him in, turn on his nightlight, check the closet for the boogeyman. Helen convinces Lucas it’s safe to close his eyes and drift off to sleep, but little does she know, the legend of the local child eater is as real as ever, and it’s up to her to protect Lucas from the maniacal and murderous Robert Bowery.

If you're going to be at SXSW, CHILD EATER debuts on Saturday, March 9th.
