Storyline

There's definitely something terrible going on in the peaceful suburban community, as, one after the other, otherwise loving and caring parents mysteriously turn into ravenous carriers of an unfathomable pandemic that targets their offspring. Suddenly, every son and daughter--not only in the neighbourhood but also in the entire region--have to run for their lives, as the rage-filled murderous intent is simply as unstoppable as it is inexplicable. Of course, Brent and Kendall's teenage children are no exception, and before long, the simmering but usual familial tensions will take a completely different meaning. Kids, stop hiding. Mum and Dad love you so much. Written by Nick Riganas

Decent Black Comedy Horror
20 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

To be fair this is the best movie Cage has done in years but that's not really saying much now is it. Its trashy and silly but its very well done for what it is. Cage Hams it up with his wacko faces and obviously makes it easy looking like a crazed lunatic. Selma Blair is even creepier as you never know what she is going to do next.

Lance Henriksen ( Aliens ) makes an amazing cameo and you can't help but laugh out loud. There isn't loads of blood and guts and I was expecting more but a lot of it is left to the imagination which is a good thing.

Watch this film and take it with a pinch of salt, don't go expecting anything deep or meaningful as this is just pure tongue in cheek. Ill give it a 7/10, I was expecting way worse but I was pleasantly surprised at how well done it was.

Just remember this film next time you see Mom and Dad !!
