A man who makes a horrifying discovery about the founding fathers of America must protect his family from the murderous loyalist determined to safeguard the volatile secret at all costs in director Peter Medak's adaptation of a short story by author Bentley Little. Soon after his grandfather's funeral, Mike (Johnathon Schaech) unearths an artifact that paints the first president of the United States in a troubling new light. According to Mike's discovery, George Washington was a ravenous cannibal, and his flesh-eating legacy lives on to this very day. Now, as a loyal band of Washingtonians is determined to ensure that they remain well fed, and their secret never gets out. Of course, the best way to do this is by consuming Mike and his family, but this is one feast that the Washingtonians are going to have to fight for. ~ Jason Buchanan

    Individual directors produce each episode of masters of horror, none disappointing. This is no exception.

    I Cannot Tell a Lie, I Ate the Children !


    Ok, so the concept of our first president being a cannibal is a bit far fetched. But that's what is so great about this episode and the series as a whole. I won't go into a complete synopsis here (the assumption being that if you're reading this, you fully know what the story's about) but I will say that this was in my opinion, the most entertaining episode of the whole second season. One could honestly argue that the acting is poor, the film doesn't live up to the expectations of the "horror" genre, etc, etc. It's a fun ride though, so get your ticket and get in line.
