Michael Laemie (played by Brian Madorsky) is a young boy living in a typical 1950's suburbanite home... except for his bizarre and horrific nightmares, and continued unease around his parents. Especially his father, Nick Laemie (played by Randy Quaid). Young Michael begins to suspect his parents are cooking more than just hamburgers on the grill outside, but has trouble explaining his fears to his new-found friend Sheila, or the school's social worker.Written by

Michael, are you ready to behave? I thought I tell you a little story. Want to hear a story. I tell you a little story and I want you to shut up until I'm finished.

You eat people.
I've been watching you, Michael. You're an outsider, you're not like them. You're like us.
I don't love you any more.
Yes you do.
We're bound for life, no matter how much you hate us.

Young Michael (Bryan Madorsky) notices his parents have a strange fondness for meat and wonders where all the meat they eat for dinner comes from. And what goes on after he goes to bed.
Exceptionally well acted and crafted horror-comedy that takes place in the 1950's. The sets, costumes, style, detail paid to flavor of the 50's, and the cars & houses will WOW you and give you a feeling of nostalgia. A nice change of pace for Randy Quaid and it is nice to see Sandy Dennis at work again.
Be forewarned though this is one of the most disturbing films I have ever seen in my entire life. There is absolutely no letup.
My rating: 9 out of 10.
