Storyline

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 Nick Riganas

Decent Black Comedy Horror
20 January 2018 | by eve_dollukSee all my reviews

To be fair this is the best movie Cage has done in years but that's not really saying much now is it. Its trashy and silly but its very well done for what it is. Cage Hams it up with his wacko faces and obviously makes it easy looking like a crazed lunatic. Selma Blair is even creepier as you never know what she is going to do next.

Lance Henriksen ( Aliens ) makes an amazing cameo and you can't help but laugh out loud. There isn't loads of blood and guts and I was expecting more but a lot of it is left to the imagination which is a good thing.

Watch this film and take it with a pinch of salt, don't go expecting anything deep or meaningful as this is just pure tongue in cheek. Ill give it a 7/10, I was expecting way worse but I was pleasantly surprised at how well done it was.

Just remember this film next time you see Mom and Dad !!
