"Mum and Dad", a British horror release in 2008, is a nice little terror nugget. All I can say is...you definitely don't want to go to mum and dad's house. Eery, graphic, a psycho thriller to the end. This one is definitely not for the squeamish...we're dealing with deranged whole grain freaks in this one. Though I've seen similar films with similar plots, this one is done quite well...worthy of all 5 stars. Kudos to Director Steven Shiel...please continue to produce this type of horror gem!

"Mum and Dad". What a great movie! Showing how bad life can be in a seriously dysfunctional family! Something of an understatement here when given the kind of 'family' involved.
Polish immigrant worker at an airport finds herself stranded for the night in her work colleague's home and ends up staying much longer than expected, being held captive and made to live as part of the mad family set-up, with ma and pa and the work colleague and her brother, whom never speaks a word throughout the entire movie. (No doubt he's been too traumatised by the goings-on to ever find his voice again!).

Apparently the director wanted a British version of a "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" type movie, but in my view he succeeds in making a far superior film to that old cult classic, which I found myself quickly bored with owing to the tedious, nonstop screaming of Marilyn Chambers, the 'heroine' of TCM.
In fact, in my opinion, "Mum and Dad" is better than all of the TCM movies (including the remake) and Hostel movies put together. It is far more interesting, and believable. It has realistic and credible effects, nothing OTT silly like the hanging eyeball sequence in the first "Hostel" film, an effect that was frankly ludicrous and destroyed any credibility the movie had had up until then. I had found myself soon bored with "Hostel" anyway. Not so with "Mum and Dad" which managed to keep my interest absorbed throughout.

Unlike the tiresome screaming of Chambers in TCM, which only served to make the movie irritating, our heroine in "Mum and Dad" makes you root for her all the way. This girl used her intelligence to think of cunning ways to extricate herself from the horrendous situation, instead of resorting to mindless screaming like Chambers did in "Chainsaw".

Format: DVD
This sick and twisted flick is one of the first Exploitation films out of England in decades. Clearly influenced by the works of Pete Walker, Tobe Hooper, and Wes Craven, MUM & DAD tells the tale of a poor Polish immigrant that is kidnapped and tortured by a perverted family led by mum and dad, who take pleasure in inflicting pain and sexual torments on the new family 'pet.' The film encompasses all of the same qualities and standards that would have had it banned under the Video Nasties act in the 1980s, depicting disgusting and brutal acts of violence in a downward degenerative spiral without tapping in to any sort of social commentary or redeeming moral consequence. It is purely Exploitation for the sake of Exploitation. It also provides critics with a perfect example used to justify their demeaning term "Torture Porn," since the film blends elements of both within its perverse framework. While all of this would seem to belittle the film, it actually has quite the opposite effect. MUM & DAD is one of the few films to achieve the same disgusting and unsettling moods generated in the first wave of true Exploitation films since the early 80s. In all of its nastiness, it provides two powerful and hated villains that are sure to draw an immediate emotive response from the viewer. The exclusion of any musical score leaves the audience defenseless as they are forced into uncomfortably close and intimate quarters with the events unfolding on screen. It often recalls the stronger elements of FRIGHTMARE, THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, and even THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS, and provides great technical work, design, and acting for a film that was made for under $100,000'.Read more ›

Format: DVD
normally I'm a huge fan of horror flicks, I also find the 'torture' ones to be interesting. I won't lie...this was mindless torture for the first 20 minutes of the film. Also talk about some serious loose ends. Why hadn't any police come? I mean two or three people were kidnapped by this couple. Since the guy was friends with "dad" that's even more weird there was no police scene. Also it never really explained Lena's real family at all. And it would have been so much more climatic if the boy would have talked in the end and stood up against the parents with Lena. Plus I think the director or whoever was too obsessed with the sex appeal.

The porn on the TV at breakfast was extremely overkill, even though they were showing how nuts the family is...that seemed obvious already.

Plus maybe its just me because my best friend is British but I found the film slightly racist against British people. Not saying people are only psychos in America, there's plenty of psychos in England but I just hated how they used all the British terms by these psychos and made the british terms sound...i don't know, horrifying.

If I had to choose between this and "The Woman" as a fave disturbing flick, I'd choose The Woman because at least The Woman had a story and not so many loose ends. Plus this was just...difficult to watch and just awful. I think if it would have had more of a story to it then I would like it more...but for the most part it was mindless torture throughout the entire film.

No story as to WHY this couple torture kids (yea ok their nuts but still), no story why the British girl seems so happy with living with too lunatics. Yeah okay she's nuts to but at her AGE there should at least be some kind of fear or something.

I only give it three stars instead of 1 because it was good enough for me to watch till the end but honestly its not worth buying at all...or even renting.
