MV5BMTU3NzE3NDE1N15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMDMyMjkyMjE@__V1_SX214_AL_Review (Spoils): Young boy Michael (Bryan Madorsky ) does not fit in at all with his own parents. His mother (Mary Beth Hurt) loves him but he father (Randy Quaid ) see’s him as an embarrassment. Poor Michael has strange nightmares or visions of blood, killer sausages and his parents having sex. Michael starts to suspect that there is more than average meat in the food and in the freezer. He and his new friend Sheila from school investigate as they are both troubled with their lives and hate social workers.

We have lots of blood, 1950 suburban feel, raw meat, nightmares, nasty head shot and some dead bodies. The film has a strange pervert fell too it and the typical strange yet too clean 1950’s feel, so this all works well.

Rating: This film was actually fun and it was meant that way not be taken serious. Both Randy Quaid and Mary Beth Hurt both were great in the film and held the characters well. The film did have some parts that were a little boring or not as creepy but if this film did have more gore and blood it was could have been great!
