Flesh Eating Mothers Movie Review
This staple of late-night cable is as bad as its title could ever suggest, a micro-budget horror production that somehow found minor distribution back in 1989, probably due to its supposed "Christian values" and its anti-adultery message.
The film is a simple splatter flick: In a small, anonymous town, the mothers all suddenly turn into cannibals, chewing apart their children and husbands. They aren't zombies, mind you -- and they carry on regular conversations with one another -- they're just hungry. Meanwhile, the tonwspeople don't do much to fight the menace: They stand around and watch, mouths agape, as the moms slaughter away, ripping limbs off of their victims and gnawing on the rubber faux flesh.
The special effects, makeup, and music are awful but the acting is worse than all of these. Flesh Eating Mothers is so bad that no one involved with the film in any substantial way has ever made another movie since its release. And now you can get it on DVD.
