Cool gore, shame about the rest.
27 January 2018 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

A sexually transmitted virus, spread by a local lothario, transforms the mothers of a small town into cannibals. A group of concerned teenagers attempt to administer a cure cooked up by a really short coroner and a leggy blonde nurse.

Low budget, tongue-in-cheek horror Flesh-Eating Mothers features a few reasonably splattery gore effects, including a cop having his arm ripped off, a spurting bullet shot to the head, a cat being ripped in half, lots of flesh-eating, and a guy having his face torn away; it also boasts suitably freaky make-up designs for the cannibalistic women (think Jack Nicholson as The Joker with really bad teeth).

Unfortunately, it cannot escape the fact that it's a very cheap and essentially amateurish effort that suffers from a weak script and terrible performances (the actors carry on regardless whenever they fluff their lines).

3.5 out of 10, rounded up to 4 for IMDb.
