Mum & Dad Reviews
Mum and Dad has quite an interesting, and chillingly familiar, premise as we see an innocent young person brought into a house and physically and mentally fucked with. Something that happens to young girls involved in Trafficing the world over. only fortunately not to this level. But it's brutal nature could well give hardcore horror fans a perverse thrill as things become more tense throughout and the nonchalant, this-is-normal behaviour of the family puts you on edge to. Plus the fact they watch porn at the breakfast table.
Some will no doubt find this repulsive and disgusting but for horror fans Mum and Dad is a twisted treat.
Considering the low budget, the movie is quite well done and real life events that have happened make it surprisingly believable.
The movie does have its slightly funny moments mixed with torture and gore. Ainsley Howard does a fantastic job of playing the character of Birdie and Olga Fedori is also very convincing as the victim. It's a fresh rating from me!
Knowing about true life cases similar to this make this film feel quite realistic. I also have to say that considering its low budget, it is done very well. The scenes of torture are believable and there are some comedic moments too.
