Mom and Dad (15)

Horror, Thriller

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.

The critical consensus

An exploitation movie that, paradoxically, exhibits too much good taste. Still, expect “Saws all!” to become a 2018 catchphrase.

Selma Blair and Nicolas Cage have a ball as a suburban couple gone horribly haywire.

****(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 05/03/2018

It is probably best not to look for the deeper meanings in the plot and to regard Mom & Dad as a new twist on an old-fashioned survival story.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 07/03/2018

Has one of those deliciously sick horror movie premises that always manage to sound cool on paper but rarely live up to their promise on screen.
