A teenage girl and her little brother must survive a wild 24 hours during which a mass hysteria of unknown origins causes parents to turn violently on their own kids.
Described by some critics as “Home Alone” on bath salts, “Mom and Dad” is one of those movies that doesn’t have the potential to be on anyone’s must-see list. Why? While the movie hasn’t come out yet, so no one really knows everything about it, the trailer is enough to make most people turn the other way. While Nic Cage has been in quite a few bombs in the past, this one really takes the cake when it comes to the movie world.
It’s described as a “jet black comedy,” and that would certainly be an accurate description of the content of the first trailer for Mom And Dad – the latest film from the man who brought you Crank. While Nicolas Cage movies can notoriously vary wildly in quality, hopes are high for this seeming subversion of contagion-in-suburbia thrillers.
For those who might be unfamiliar with the project, it follows teenager Carly Ryan (Anne Winters), who finds herself having to outwit her mother and father – Brent (Nicolas Cage) and Kendall (Selma Blair) – when some kind of mass hysteria descends upon their suburb and makes parents brutally murder their own children. As chaos continues to erupt around them, Carly and her younger brother must survive a relentless onslaught from their enraged forebears.
