Editorial Reviews

One of the most disturbing shockers to emerge in recent years, "Mum & Dad" will leave the toughest horror fan gasping in shock. When Lena, a young Polish immigrant working as an airport office cleaner, misses her last bus home, she accepts an offer of help from friendly co-worker Birdie, who lives nearby with her "adoptive" parents. Knocked unconscious after arriving at the house, Lena soon finds herself imprisoned in a suburban house of horrors, a living nightmare of torment and terror. Designated a "Mommy's Girl," Lena's only options appear to be becoming part of the insane family -- or dying.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gem... February 25, 2010
By PR GUY
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant! August 25, 2009
Format:DVD
"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".

4.0 out of 5 stars Mum & Dad March 8, 2010
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'.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mother doesn't always know best. March 14, 2009
Format:DVD
Imagine if Mike Leigh and Tobe Hooper got drunk one night, fooled around and had a love child, then this new movie by director Steven Sheil would surely be the ghastly outcome. Shot like a kitchen sink drama but with the mean spirited nature that is prevalent in the horror genre at the moment - ''Mum and Dad'' is one sick puppy that like others who venture down this road, fails in comparison to the 70s homegrown horror big hitters like ''Texas Chainsaw'' and ''Halloween'' which it is so desperately trying to emulate.

The story has Lena (played well by Olga Fedori), a young polish cleaner working the nightshift at an airport in London. There, she unwittingly befriends brother and sister duo Birdie and Elbie. Enticing Lena back to their home, she is then tortured for the rest of the movie by the pseudo siblings' monsterous parentage, the mum and dad of the title.

Essaying 'Dad' is 1980s British comedy actor and Shane Meadows regular Perry Benson. His portrayal is ugly and off putting, and a million miles away from his comedic roles such as 'You Rang M'Lord'. 'Mum' played by Dido Miles, is another abomination and her deviant nature is depicted in graphic detail.

Across the board, the movie is well acted and observed in a usual british, gritty reality. Sheils' direction is paced well and he has an eye for the bizarre, however his screenplay is nothing more than what you have already seen before in other movies of this ilk which have used their obvious budgetary limitations to a much better use. The film does feel in parts like an overlong episode of the UK TV series 'The Royal Family' if uncle leatherface came to stay.

4.0 out of 5 stars Horrible - in a good way - for a horror flick.
It's different. It's gruesome. Not for the faint of heart. More real and gritty than a Friday the 13th or Halloween type of slasher film.
