Something terrible is definitely happening in the a peaceful suburban community as, day by day, former caring parents mysteriously turn into ravenous carriers of an unfathomable pandemic that targets their offspring. Suddenly, like every son and daughter in the entire nation, teenage Carly and Josh Ryan must run for their lives, as the rage-filled murderous intent is as unstoppable as it is inexplicable. Before long, the Ryans' usual simmering familial tensions take on a completely different meaning. Kids, stop hiding. Mom and Dad love you so much.Written by

When Kendall is crying in her car she wears a seatbelt; cut to a different angle and she's not wearing it; when the film cuts to the front angle for the phone call she's still not wearing it. See more »

This movie was strangely therapeutic for someone. If you hate your kids or don't understand your parents this movie is for you.
Nicolas Cage is at his best here as a dad going through a mid-life crisis just when some strange outbreak of savagery has every parent trying to kill there offspring like hamsters eating their young.
Selma Blair gives an equally excellent performance as a Mom trying to bond with a daughter she use to be close to before she became a teenager.
And Last but not least is Lance Henriksen as grandpa Vietnam vet, the cherry on top of this crazy sundae.
It's a bizarre horror-styled film that just keeps getting more berserk as the film goes on. The filmmakers must all have children, as it captures perfectly the frustration that comes with giving up your life for someone else and not fully realizing it until there is nothing to do to change it.
Love the style of the movie too. The music composed for the film is really excellent. Not to mention I love the way the camera moves around the actors.
Also loved how natural Mom and Dad made the killing of your spawns. Overall, this movie does it for me and I highly recommend.
