Nicholas Cage seems to really shine these days when he’s allowed to completely lose his mind on screen, and from what we see in the first trailer for Mom and Dad he’s going to get to do just that. Written and directed by Brian Taylor (Crank, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance), Mom and Dad stars Nic Cage and Selma Blair as parents desperately trying to kill their children.
Effectively functioning like a zombie flick, the trailer immediately reminded me of a reverse Cooties—the fantastic Leigh Whannell penned horror comedy from a few years back. Check out the Mom and Dad trailer below and let us know what you think.
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.
Mom and Dad will be released in theaters and on VOD platforms January 19, 2018.
