Seldom off our radar right now is Brian Taylor’s parents-go-crayzee horror-thriller Mom and Dad, which promises violence by the bucketload and Nicolas Cage at his full-bore, boggle-eyed best. Courtesy of Collider, we’ve now got a whole lot of stills from the film, which also stars the always awesome Selma Blair (Hellboy, WΔZ).
The film centres around teenager Carly (Anne Winters) and her younger brother Josh (Zackary Arthur) who must try to survive the toughest 24 hours of their lives, when a mysterious mass hysteria causes parents to turn violently on their own children.
Blair and Cage play the crazed parents and one has to think they’re gonna be pretty great in these roles. Also appearing is prolific genre veteran Lance Henriksen (Aliens, The Terminator, Near Dark). Crank director Taylor wrote and directed Mom and Dad, reteaming with Cage having helmed Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance in 2011.
Mom and Dad hits US cinemas and VOD platforms on January 19th, from Momentum Pictures.
