Jimmy Weber‘s feature length directorial debut Eat definitely looks promising. You want proof? I’ll give you proof: a teaser trailer (and poster) for the whole thing! Described as the story of a girl who finds herself and then…well, eats herself, Weber’s indie horror should premiere this fall, which means now is the perfect time to check out the video & to let us know what you think!
Written and directed by Weber, and shot in March and April of 2013, Eat revolves around a struggling actress in Los Angeles who develops a disturbing habit of eating her own flesh.
Here’s what it looks like:
And here’s the official synopsis for the whole thing:
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 stars Meggie Maddock, Ali Frances, Jeremy Make, Maru Garcia and Dakota Pike, and as we mentioned at the beginning of this report – Weber and his team hope to premiere it in the Fall of 2013.
We’ll keep an eye on it, make sure you stay tuned!
