New York Post

By V.A. Musetto
The movie's title might sound like a splatter-fest by Rob Zombie. But despite the theme, “Eddie” goes easy on gratuitous gore. What we get is a cerebral horror movie and a satire of the art world.

The A.V. Club

By Mike D'Angelo
Beneath the surface outrageousness lies a surprisingly, satisfyingly dark little fable about the essentially cannibalistic nature of artistic inspiration.

Village Voice

By Nick Schager
While secret handshakes are amusingly depicted as the key to building trust and friendship, it's Stephen McHattie's greedy agent...that truly hammers home the film's depiction of the art world as fueled by rapacious, kill-or-be-killed bloodlust.

The Playlist

By Christopher Bell
It's a very competent black comedy, one that should please audiences looking for something with some bite.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

By Liam Lacey
The movie ends up exactly what it sounds like: a good film for filling the midnight slot at a review cinema or genre festival.

The New York Times

By Jeannette Catsoulis
This witty first feature is a flawed but diverting meditation on finding inspiration while losing your soul.

Slant Magazine

Because the film clearly aims for satire, Boris Rodriguez isn't entirely guilty of indulging gruesome spectacle for its own sake.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Frank Scheck
It winds up as little more than a mildly fun spatter picture that will be best enjoyed by undemanding patrons at midnight screenings.

Time Out New York

By David Fear
As its title suggests, this is more of a self-conscious attempt to court quirky cult-film status. Nice try.

The holes in the plot, not in Eddie’s diet, are the real joke.
