One of the greats of 80s horror cinema, with a soft spot for the classic horror writers and outlandish gore. Though a true 80s relic, I have to say I prefer his somewhat more subdued 21st century work. Required viewing for horror fans.

Eater poster

Fun and rather gruesome film that brings together a late night shift at the police station and a cannibal from the bayou. The result is a moody and atmospheric little film that shows Gordon's early millennium stuff is well worth a try. Solid actors, nice effects, good pacing and tense when it needs to be. Best of the Fear Itself shorts so far.
