Flesh Eating Mothers Eating My Brain!
27 May 2006 | by (Sleesburg, VA.) – See all my reviews

Well, Flesh Eating Mothers is definitely as "B" a movie as they come. Although, anyone who knows anything about "B" horror films will realize that this is by far not the worst out of the genre. Flesh Eating Mothers is a film with tacky comedy, a few decent gore moments, and several little kids getting eaten.

Basically, a venereal disease gets out in a small suburban town and a group of about 6 mothers catch the disease. It starts out with simple hunger then mutates into blood thirst. Soon after, these mothers don't know what they are doing and start eating their children and everyone else around them. The only hope for the town is a group of teenagers that won't stand by and see their mothers eating everyone. How can they stop the onslaught? I first saw this movie back in 1998 when I worked at a Video Warehouse. I had just about seen every horror film in there except for Flesh Eating MOthers and head to rent it. Well, I liked it enough to search for it 7 years later and now have a fairly decent copy of the film. Whether it is uncut, I don't know. But the gore is adequate in the film with a few scenes here and there. The best gore scene is when one of the mothers rips the side of her husbands face off. The acting was as expected, bad. But could have been even worse. The script was bad. Most of the movie was bad. Don't get me wrong, it is still a fun movie, just don't be expecting to see something like "Brain Dead" or "Premutos". 6/10
