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'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Horrifically scary July 13, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video
If you enjoy scary films, this is for you. I'm not really into the horror movies, but watched it because my girlfriends wanted to watch it, and boy, was it scary.... The plot is kind of unrealistic, but then again what scary movie isn't? Kind of reminds me of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. If you like that kind of scary films like Saw, Se7en, or other torture horror movies, this is something you want to see.

4.0 out of 5 stars Coronation Street Goes To Hell January 19, 2010
Format:DVD
Wonderfully demented black comedy/horror about a kidnapped immigrant girl forced to endure some brutal "behavioral modification" at the hands of a seriously twisted family.
A sick, slick bit of nastiness and darker than dark humor.

Mum and Dad is one of those films that I feel guilty watching because it's so repulsive in nature and content.
From the beginning when the adopted siblings meet the "new girl"while cleaning the airport bathroom and they show a close up shot of a toilet and stall assaulted with fecal matter splattered everywhere I knew I was in for a sick ride.
Some of the scenes were so repulsive that it felt like really sick fetish porn"case and point" when Dad was masterbating with recently butchered flesh and they panned the camera on it after the deed was done and you could see semen flowing out of the folded up flesh"EEK".
Or the human christmas decorations,one with a big hole cut out of his torso so the candle would light it up real pretty inside.
Dad in drag was pretty disturbing too,it was his time to play mommy and have fun with "mommy's girl".Dad's bare butt was enough to disturb me for days,it looked like a huge out of shape womans butt"but on a man".
The only satisfaction I got from this movie was the revenge element that ensues at the end.But I still felt like taking a bath.If you like sick ,gross,disturbing images and sexual torture this movie is for you.If not skip it.I give it 3 stars because you're getting exactly what you are signing up to watch.

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.
