Geekery: ‘Mom and Dad’ Isn’t Family Friendly

If you like the idea of Nic Cage doing the hokey pokey with a sledgehammer, this movie may be for you.

From Brian Taylor (half of the pair that made Crank) comes a family movie, of sorts. The premise is simple…

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.

Now add everyone’s favorite unhinged actor.

It’s done the festival circuit already and it’s been pretty well received. It’s being touted as a satire with action and sick humor.

This is pretty much the perfect role for Cage. It really allows him to go of the rails. Hopefully there won’t be bees….

Mom and Dad hits video on demand January 19th.

    Cage is due for a career revival. For too long he’s been doing mostly remakes and crap like Left Behind (even for a Christian film it was terrible… and I say that as a Christian filmmaker!). Always been a phenomenal actor and too bad that Hollywood insanity cost him Superman Lives. But now at last he’s a shot at returning to the forefront for the first time since 2007’s Werewolf Women of the SS!

      Tim Burton and Nicholas Cage doing Superman could have been awesome, or terrible, or awesomely terrible. A sadly missed opportunity.

    This looks bonkers; hopefully all the best bits aren’t in the trailer.

    And talking of “Crank”, have you seen that Jason Statham is going to be fighting a giant shark.

    The parent’s parents show up and will try to kill Cage and Blair, the kids will get away while the “adults are talking”.

      Good point. Unless they are saving grandparents for the sequel.

    The KISS analogy it tip top 😀 I can see what you mean.
