Storyline

For some strange reason, never explained, a few of the local PTA-going mom's suddenly turn on their offspring. For much of the film they walk around town, looking mutated and making unfunny wisecracks. Written by Michael Cucinotta <cucinott@brick.purchase.edu>

So Bad That Becomes Funny
4 June 2015 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In a small town, the mothers unexpectedly become cannibals, eating their husbands and children. The police officer Cylde McDormick (Mickey Ross) kills his ex-wife when she attacks him after eating their son, but the chief of police Dixon (Ken Eaton) accuses McDormick and arrests him. Meanwhile a group of sons and daughters flee from their mothers. When McDormick escapes from prison, he meets the coroner Dr. Lee Grouly (Michael Fuer) that believes in him. Dr. Grouly researches the tissue from McDormick's ex-wife and his nurse Felicia Dodd (Carolyn Gratsch) discovers a venereal virus and the antidote. Meanwhile Dixon sends Officer Hitchcock (Morty Kleidermacher) to kill McDormick. What is Dixon hiding?

"Flesh Eating Mothers" is a trash so bad that becomes funny. The story and screenplay are ridiculous; the production, direction, performances, camera and lighting are amateurish; the sets and scenarios are poor. The special effects are laughable with lots of ketchup. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "Festim do Inferno" ("Feast from Hell")
