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

Never given a one before
21 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

I feel really bad giving a movie a one but I can find no redeeming quality in this movie It was really bad. They call it a horror/comedy but it's not horror, it's not comedy, The beginning was sort of interesting but theres no real ending and everything in the middle is just a mess. I was really looking forward to this from the trailer I'd seen but I'm very disappointed. Its one of those movies I thank god for the pirates for because I'd be really mad if I'd pay to see it!
