Storyline

Definitely something terrible is happening on in the peaceful suburban community as, one day to another, former 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 neighborhood but also in the entire nation) must 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

Not the perfect movie you're looking for,, but it's really nice, thrilling and somehow funny :D
21 January 2018 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

So when i saw the trailer, and Nicolas Cage in there i kinda had a bit of hesitation , because lately he had some really weird mediocre roles ,, but i think this is different ,, the idea of the movie is fresh and genuine and it build up to an easily followable plot.

The script is not as strong as ever , but it was as i said tight and organised and somewhat quick which leveled up the thrill ,, and not forgetting the sense of humor and the "kids we love you but sometimes we wanna kill you" it just gave the whole movie a new perspective.

The casting was good, Nicolas Cage was so engaging and tense, same for Selma Blair and the kids.

Final thought,, even though it's not the high-budget movie you're looking for, the movie was really nice, so it is definitely recommended.
