Movie Info

This bizarre horror satire involves a rabies-like virus which is spread by a philandering fellow to several harried housewives in the same suburban community, turning them into savage cannibals. That's it for the setup -- what remains is a series of outrageously gory scenes in which the maniacal mommies begin hacking up, cooking, and eating everyone in sight, including local police, stray cats, their loutish husbands, and even their own children. It's up to a few surviving kids to unite against the neighborhood menace and join forces with a doctor to come up with a cure for their mothers' lethal affliction. Fans of "splatstick" gore-fests in the vein of Peter Jackson's Dead Alive and Bad Taste should find this one entertaining, poor acting and numerous technical flaws notwithstanding.

not intended to be taken seriously in any vein, but unfortunately it's not apparent that anyone involved with the production is actually in on the joke

Audience Reviews for Flesh Eating Mothers

A low-budget comedy horror about neighborhood women turning into super-strong cannibals by way of a falanderer carrying a venereal disease which causes this behavior that only manifests itself in those who have mothered a child. A lot of ugly people in this movie - recommended for those who enjoy stuff live Microwave Massacre, Big Meat Eater, Deadly Spawn etc. More goofy than gross.


This was one of those cheese ball, campy horror movies I cherish and continually seek out! It doesn't take itself seriously so if you do then please don't watch it! Flaunts some good gore effects including a wicked sick finale kill! The only flaw I saw with the good old 80's makeup effects this film boasts was that the blood was too thin, it would splatter and then shrink and bead up just like water would. Lots of funny one liners and bad jokes, overall I thought it was very fun and had a lot to offer to fans of corny horror comedies.

Perfect movie. Great gore, super corny, boobs, and best of all plenty of great one liners. Seriously, this movie is dripping with puns. "...our Moms are gonna chew our asses out!"
