Nicolas Cage is always memorable when let completely off the leash, and going by the new trailer for parents-gone-wrong shocker Mom and Dad, he’s in full-bore, bug-eyed crayzee mode.
The Oscar winner stars opposite the always awesome Selma Blair (Hellboy, WΔZ) in the film, which 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 Brian Taylor wrote and Mom and Dad, reteaming with Cage having helmed Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance in 2011.
Mom and Dad bursts into US cinemas and VOD platforms on January 19th, from Momentum Pictures.
