This year’s Frightfest UK has come and gone, and what came of it (besides a flurry of talk about some short intros created by Adam Green and Joe Lynch) was that the next big thing is a film called Mum & Dad, which we first told you about here. Various sources tells us that the talk of the massive UK film festival was Steven Sheil’s film, which is said to be fantastic. Inside we’ve got a look at the poster for the film, or you can click the title for stills and a trailer.
Mum and Dad, and their ‘adopted’ children, Birdie & Elbie, work at the airport. The family live off whatever they scavenge from cargo holds, offices and hotels – including a steady stream of transient workers who populate the airport’s soulless hub. When Lena, a young Polish office cleaner, is befriended by Birdie, she gets drawn into a nightmarish world of torture, murder and perversity. Imprisoned in a suburban House of Horrors and designated a ‘Mummy’s Girl’, Lena’s only options appear to be to become part of the family – and join them in their insanity – or die.
