Mom and Dad

Mom and Dad

A strange disorder suddenly causes parents to violently turn against their own children, forcing a suburban teen (Anne Winters) and her younger brother (Zackary Arthur) to evade the clutches of their now-deranged mom (Selma Blair) and dad (Nicolas Cage). However, their situation gets even more complicated when their grandparents (Lance Henriksen and Marilyn Dodds Frank) show up for a visit. Written and directed by Brian Taylor (CRANK, GAMER).

“A gleefully trashy horror comedy.” (The Wrap)

“Cage and Blair, both giving their best performances in years, revel in the black comedy and social satire while also giving emotional weight to the parents’ resentment, toward the kids and each other.” (Chicago Reader)

MOM AND DAD‘s gonzo premise serves as an effective springboard for a wickedly dark, bloody comedy – and an appropriately over-the-top performance from Nicolas Cage.” (Rotten Tomatoes)
