Synopsis: A mobster hires a hit man to kill his wife and her lover. When the mobster arrives at the remote wilderness location selected by the hit man. His plot to kill his wife quickly unravels when the hit man double crosses him. To complicate matters further, the remote wilderness location chosen by the hit man will be overrun at the stroke of midnight by flesh eating native American zombies and other creatures of the night.

After a drawn out opening which introduces the three main characters, the hit man, the mobster and his wife. Things briefly pick up when the monsters are unleashed. However the momentum is quickly lost and rarely sustained as the film spends way too much time trying to explain what is going on via the hit man character who is actually an archeologists. The one area where this film does work is the monsters who stalk and prey the three main characters. Visually the direction is adequate, the special effects are satisfactory and the acting is so far over the top at times it is hard to tell if the acting is really as bad as its appears or if it is intentionally bad. Ultimately Night of the Flesheaters is a mediocre horror film that quickly gets  lost in its predictability.
