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.

Should be "Masters Of Comedy" for this episode.
31 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

Where to begin with this one. Not much to add, all reviews have covered the 5th grade story line, the slander of a great President, and some of the finest "bad acting" you've ever seen. The sad thing was, I got it, but there just wasn't anything to get. I wanted to like it when reading about it before I viewed it, and the Movie art (poster/avatar) looks cool, but that ended up being the only cool thing about it. Even if you're a big horror fan, even if you like movies like "Monster Dog" I still advise you to not waste your time on this one, you won't get it back. Go watch paint dry, you'll be more entertained. I gave it two stars instead of one just for the unintentional comedy.
