When Flecks is seen acting strangely his cohorts question his sanity. After Flecks kills a member of his crew for working with his arch-nemesis Romero, Mike & Lenny decide it's high time to fit Flecks with a pine overcoat. As the dark and ludicrous world of Face Eater unfolds, the mobsters fight it out the only way they can. And you will be on the edge of your seat trying to decide who will avoid having their face eaten! Written by Jon McClure

Surprisingly Good Satire!
5 January 2010 | by The_MoviegeekSee all my reviews

When I first came upon this film, I didn't expect much from it. However, based on the DVD cover, it looked like it would be a fun movie as the cover is obviously a reference to the 1950 film, Harvey. Therefore, I thought there might be something to it. I was right.

I agree with the previous reviewer, if you don't like low-budget, B-Movies, then this isn't for you. BUT, if you like low-budget, campy stuff, then this is right up your alley. What is cool about this film is that it fools you. From the start, it seems like you're watching a serious crime drama, then it takes a wild turn into what can only be described as campy, satirical fun. The acting is way-over the top, some of it is downright bad, which lends itself to the John Wateresque style of film-making.

The film covers a wide range of genres including everything from sci-fi, horror, spaghetti western, crime, and film-noir. The best way to describe this film is that it's FUN. It's not Oscar worthy or even Sundance worthy, but regardless of the obviously low-budget, the film has high production values and is fairly well-made.

If you don't take yourself or your movies too seriously, give this a shot.
