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.

A Truly Fabulous Film
29 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Alright, this had the potential to be a really scary concept and true horror film. While it failed in that respect it succeeded by leaps and bounds at being incredibly hilarious and terribly campy. I was literally shaking with glee at the funny premises of this movie. Specifically, there is a phone-call scene between Mr. Franks and the Professor that is so perfectly timed and completely far-fetched that I spent the next week repeating it to everyone I met. Would I suggest watching this if you want a good scare? No. Not in a million years. But it does make a wonderful comedy on par with Santa's Slay and other ultra-campy "horror-esque" films.
