* out of 4.
14 August 2002 | by brandonsites1981See all my reviews

The mothers of a small town that have been sleeping around find themselves infected with a virus that causes them to want to eat their children. Just awful film features a romance sub-plot involving a midget and a rather tall female, hardly any on screen deaths, cartoonish effects, and an awful sense of humor. What they could have done with this premise.......

Unrated; Graphic Violence.
