Stranded at work and with no hope of getting home, airport cleaning woman Lena accepts an invitation to spend the night with her perky colleague Birdie, only to find that her unusually close-knit family has some sinister secrets. Writer/director Steven Shiel makes his feature directorial debut with this distinctly British shocker. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Mum & Dad

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Could [become] a cult item in the genre.

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

    Jan 1, 2009 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Both a gruellingly tense survival horror and a darkly comic satire, Mum & Dad offers fresh meat to the cannibal family subgenre.
