Storyline

Following the death of his elderly grandmother, Mike Franks travels with his wife Pam and 10-year-old daughter Amy to his grandmother's old house where he accidentally finds an old letter hidden behind a portrait of George Washington. A morbid letter supposedly written by Washington about killing and eating children. In trying to verify the authenticity of the letter, Mike becomes the target of 'the Washingtonians'; a secret society of various and powerful people who protect the secret life of the 'Father of the Country', and whom, like Washington... are cannibals.

Just plain dumb.
21 July 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Okay, I must admit that this episode of "Masters of Horror" has a really dumb premise. But I thought it might be funny or quirky...not just incredibly dumb throughout. The premise is that George Washington (yes, THAT George Washington) was a homicidal maniac who ate children...and his nutty followers are alive and well in 2007. But the dumb plot isn't really the problem--it's the bad acting, directing and writing that sink this one. I just can't understand how this was handled this poorly. For example, a 10 year-old is eating ice cream--and it's dribbling down her hand. What child eats this way who is older than 3 or 4? The reactions of the people are also very dumb--and they just don't act like folks who aren't brain-damaged. Even the smallest thing is way, way overdone and the show has zero subtlety...absolutely none. Sloppy and clearly a sign that this series was in decline...but at least I liked the portrait of Washington at the end of the show.

By the way, my daughter told me I should have expected this to be pretty dumb based on the plot. Well, to some extent that's true, but the writing and acting were really, really bad! And the way the Chinese guy is portrayed at the end....ugghh!
