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.

are you kidding me?
7 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this was awful. just awful. i probably am of that mind because i actually READ the short story this is based on. i adore Bentley Little and his ability to take the mundane and terrify you with it.

the premise is awesome. but the acting was horrible, and the added stuff took away from the story.

though i DID quite enjoy the bit about "tastes like chicken". that was about the only redeeming thing in my opinion.

none of the acting was believable.

at all.

sorry, it just wasn't.

maybe i'm expecting too much from a TV series, but i was so disappointed by what i saw.
