Mum and Dad are a couple of psycho-killers who get their kicks out of abducting young innocents from the airport where they work and imprisoning them in their suburban house of horrors. Once inside, their victims are subjected to all manner of nasty, painful surprises at the hands of the bloodthirsty couple and their equally-deranged children, Birdie and Elbie. Their most recent acquisition is a young Polish girl named Lena, who becomes the latest in a long line of house 'guests' to be held against their will. She soon comes to the shocking realisation that her only hope of survival is to join the family in their insanity, or become a bloodstain on their carpet.
From its innocuous title, MUM AND DAD might sound like a guide to good parenting, but nothing could be further from the truth. This gore-fest of a film takes family dysfunction to a whole other level, putting the two people who should be most trusted in control of the carnage.
