           The Namtut Brothers run the most popular restaurant in town. Popular, that is, if you're the county coroner! The 'Head' Chef has a real human touch with his recipes - he's killing and grilling up a storm at the diner that serves the best 'brain food' in town.
           No one is safe, from the 18 bouncing cheerleaders, to the sacrificial maiden, who just happens to be the Police Chief's daughter. The Brothers are attempting to ressurect the ancient and deadly goddess of blood and lust, Sheeter, but her eventual return should bring the evil brothers their just desserts."
