First Trailer For Nicolas Cage Horror Comedy Mom and Dad Released

First Trailer For Nicolas Cage Horror Comedy Mom and Dad Released

Selma Blair and Nicolas Cage are certainly no strangers to acting gigs in often-bizarre horror concept films throughout the course of their respective careers.

The Mom and Dad trailer comes courtesy of Yahoo, with the film itself being distributed by Momentum Pictures. The plot involves a mysterious mass hysteria that overtakes a town, causing people - notably Blair and Cage's "Mom and Dad", Brent (Cage) and Kendall (Blair) - to be overwhelmed by violent urges to attack their own children. In 2011 they attempted to mesh their mad aesthetic with a mainstream project in Marvel's Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance: an experiment that didn't quite land.

THR: The kind of rip-snorting, relatively cheap and cheerful black comedy the industry doesn't make enough of anymore, Mom & Dad is a deliciously lurid throwback. Now it's up to their kids Carly (Anne Winters) and Josh (Zackary Arthur) to team up and try to survive this parental punishment from hell.




IndieWire: "Mom and Dad" has the same depraved verve, sick humor and berserk pulse of the "Crank" series, and what's more, marries all that to an operatic Nicolas Cage performance in full on nutzoid mode.

Nicolas Cage is an Academy Award-winning actor who is today best known for blowing his $150 million fortune on European castles, a private island, a haunted mansion, a vintage copy of Action Comics #1 and a dinosaur skull, all of which forced him to take a decade's worth of less-than-desirable (yet internet-beloved) film roles. However, amongst his myriad payday projects, he recently appeared in 2016's Central Intelligence Agency whistleblower biopic Snowden with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and will field a voice role in the 2020-scheduled The Croods 2.

Mom and Dad is set to premiere in theaters and on VOD this January 19.
