Despite droll moments and impressive production values for an allegedly tiny ($200,000) budget, an extra idea or two would have made this a little bit better than just OK.

Could [become] a cult item in the genre.

Both a gruellingly tense survival horror and a darkly comic satire, Mum & Dad offers fresh meat to the cannibal family subgenre.

Little White Lies

riffs off The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, but its setting in a house right under the flightpath of Heathrow Airport brings some peculiarly English shadings to the butcher's table.

Shadows on the Wall

This lean, mean British horror is just gonzo enough to overcome the limits of the formula and keep us entertained

There's not much to Mum & Dad, besides what needs to be there to achieve grisly effectiveness. What is most disturbing about it is the way that it captures and distorts the very dynamics that exist in any family.
