It’s only January, but I’m calling it now, the horror-comedy ‘Mom and Dad‘ will be the best film of 2018. The movie stars Nicolas Cage and Selma Blair as two seemingly normal suburban parents who often complain about their self-centered children.
But things take a hilarious and surprising turn when all parents in the city turn violent and attempt to murder their children. That’s right, folks. Cage plays a crazed father in this movie who wants to kill his kids.
What more do you need to know? In the trailer below, Cage sings the ‘Hokey Pokey’ while swinging a sledgehammer and hunting for his terrified kids inside their home. It’s the best trailer moment I’ve seen in years.
The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, and it’s getting great reviews from critics. It has an 81% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but it could have an 18% rating. I do not care. This movie is going to be a blast. It’s scheduled to hit theaters January 19, 2018.
