Description by

MA BARKER, MOTHER TO THE UNDERWORLD AND PUBLIC ENEMY #1! Ma Barker only wants the best for her sons. As soon as they're old enough, she teaches them how to steal out of the collection plate at church. By the time they're teenagers, the boys have graduated to tommy guns and armored car heists. Nothing is too evil or too obscene for this family, from killing cops to setting fire to witnesses. Ma Barker reminds her sons that the only crime is getting caught. An expose on the true-life story of the outlaws who ran with John Dillinger and Machine Gun Kelly, Ma Barker's Killer Brood dramatizes their reign of lawlessness. This brutal two-decade long spree of murder and sin is documented, right up to their violent demise in a hail of gunfire.

Product Description:

The true story of Ma Barker, who led her ruthless sons on a bloody crime spree from Ohio to Florida. The family that slays together stays together.

You've got to be kidding Movie Lover: from Middle Village, NY US -- December, 27, 2008

I see some people have rated this movie fairly high. Just goes to show you something, I guess. This has got to be one the worst B movies ever made, so bad it's beyond laughable. Why, even the clothes of some of the characters don;t fit - especially men's hats. Awful...but I watched it all anyway.
