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.
