I've never heard of this flick until recently and the title appealed to me because it was similar to Rabid Grannies, which I enjoyed. The two films are somewhat similar themed, but Rabid Grannies is far superior in gore and entertainment in my opinion. Although I think the comedy might be a little better in this one.

Move over Desperate Housewives, here come Flesh Eating Mothers, where the plot is as thin as it gets, and instead of sleeping with the neighbor, they eat him!; no one is spared! We follow a group of "teens" as they attempt to put a stop to the cannibal outbreak from their mothers, after they somehow contract a mysterious viral infection. Apparently it only affects older women, thus, all the moms and wives go mad with hunger and soon realize that dinner is better left served straight from the source, I.E. any human nearby.

The movie drags a bit in parts, but if you look passed that and the cheesy acting then you might find yourself enjoying this. The gore effects are pretty decent, and there's a lot of nice scenes involving flesh-tearing from the arms and such that reminded me a bit of the original Dawn of the Dead.

80's cheese at its best. Decent gore and an interesting plot, if you enjoyed Rabid Grannies you might also enjoy this.
