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.
We can only hope that this movie is going to live up to the promise of this trailer. It’s an over the top delivery of an absurd premise (like an inverse Cooties) and I couldn’t be more interested. Everything from Nicolas Cage (Face-Off, The Wicker Man ) scream-singing the lyrics to the “Hokey Pokey” to the dramatically absurd tagline “They brought you into this world, they’ll take you out” is dripping with self-awareness and insanity.
In addition to Nic Cage the film also stars Selma Blair (Hellboy, The Fog ). It was written and directed by Brian Taylor (Crank, Jonah Hex).
Mom and Dad will be in theaters January 19th, 2018.
