About the Film

Novella McClure (Meggie Maddock) 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.  Her motherly landlord doesn't know whether to kick Novella to the streets or let her live there for free.

To make matters worse, Novella keeps running into Tracy (Dakota Pike); her “nemesis” who books job after job.  The stress turns Novella’s nervous habit of biting her fingernails into something much more serious.  Novella hides her condition, but it’s hard with rotten bandages and missing appendages.  

While clubbing with her best friend Candice (Ali Frances), Novella meets Simon (Jeremy Make).  He’s a charming doctor and appears to really care for Novella.  Can Dr. Simon help Novella through her hardships and overcome her disorder?  Or will this condition continue to eat away at her until it’s too late?


EAT will affect you like few other horror films do. It will twist your heart while it churns your stomach. Not just a gorefest, but a gorefest with character and depth.

Only the die-hard gorehound will be watching this bloodthirsty piece of entertainment, which would be a real shame as this groundbreaking title deserves a wider audience.
— Influx Magazine
Weber has also edited and scored the film, giving it a consistency of vision rare even among auteur filmmakers, and considering the restrictive budget he was working with, has produced what amounts to a minor masterpiece.
— Starburst Magazine
With a mix of humor, seriousness, social commentary and some awesome gore, EAT delivers the goods and looks beautiful doing it.
— Haddonfield Horror
The gore is really fucking gross. Like…really fucking gross.
— Modern Horrors
A clever, entertaining and extreme tale that really goes for the throat.

The score deserves special mention: in moments of quiet it’s very soothing; sometimes even beautiful. But when things take a turn for the bad, it changes to an audio sledgehammer to the senses that perfectly compliments the disgusting cannibal carnage on screen. The movie ends with a track called, ‘They See Me,’ a beautifully haunting, dreamy piece of music that’s been on shuffle for me since the end credits rolled. It’s a perfect piece to end the movie on, and one that plays in your head as you contemplate what’s just transpired over 90 minutes.
