Mum & Dad Reviews:

There is not doubt that we are watching a highly dysfunctional family when Dad (Perry Benson) comes out of the room with a pick dripping blood and we see a body behind him. Mum (Dido Miles) is coming over to Lena (Olga Fedori), who has been abducted, saying her that she needs to calm him down.When she goes into dad's "workshop," he is masturbating in a organ - liver or kidney. Dad is a really strange bugger and you do not wish to receive on his wrong side.She keeps trying to escape unsuccessfully, and Birdie (Ainsley Howard) seems to take a perverse pleasure in her pain.It's never really gory, just really creepy and perverse. The Christmas celebration was method over the top and will undoubtedly upset traditionalists. It certainly wasn't a Martha Stewart decoration on the wall.The brother Elbie (Toby Alexander) was just an unwilling participant, and took the first occasion to end the misery of other sister, who was only brought out at Christmas.Similar to The Folks Under the Stairs, it is a worthwhile indy horror treat.


I saw a preview of Mum and Dad at this year's Frightfest in Leicester Square and what a treat it was. Whether a full uncut ver will ever reach screens large or tiny I wouldn't like to say. This was an uncompromising, grim and dark piece of film-making which set itself apart from certain another movies at the festival by doing what only the Brit's can do, which is carve a darkly comic streak throughout the film. Not the comic whimsy of Shaun of the Dead, but that most unsettling sort which finds you laughing with the anti-heroes and their macabre family set-up, questioning your own scruples. Considering the budget those involved have proved you don't need to hurl cash at a project to create a truly disturbing and gripping film. Perfect sound design and direction give the movie the sense of a much bigger budget project. I'm not one to give away too much in a review, I like to go in blind if at all possible so I won't spoil any of the grim details, however this movie has some truly gruesome moments which add impact to the already ominous and unsettling context. All I will tell is see for yourself, but maybe hold-fire on dinner 'til you receive out of the theatre. An perfect feature, especially as a Directorial debut and considering the micro-budget (I trust it was made for £100,000) Impressive stuff, disturbing, funny and utterly disgusting.


What better method to begin the fresh year than with a gritty British horror flick. Fresh horror talent is rising everywhere and the Brits can't lag behind. Not that they can hold up with the best, but they manage to uphold a nice standard of dirty and raw horror flicks. Enter Mum & Dad.Horror movies come in all various sizes and flavors. Gore, ghosts, werewolves, suspense, torture and whatnot. Sheil's Mum & Dad is a tiny various though. Rather than hit the audience with full-frontal ugliness it gambles on weirdness and plays the freak card. While some might call it other variation on the crazy family theme, it holds more in common with a movie like Assassins (or True Killers, as it is also known) than it does with the Chainsaw Massacre or Rob Zombie flicks.One thing about horror flicks is that you can often derive a lot from the game of the film. The cooler and tougher it sounds, the softer it usually is. And so you have to admit, Mum & Dad leaves a nice solid base for some slick and freaky horror fun. Central to the movie are both characters referenced in the title. Mum and dad might look like ordinary folks from the outside, they certainly are a tiny various from your regular household setup.The fun begins when one of their kids drags in a Polish immigrant woman who gets "integrated" into the family. It quickly begins to dawn that mum and dad are not as ordinary as they seemed at first and off you go for a nice 60 mins of weirdness. Much like Calvaire, the movie plays on equal lvls of awkwardness, grit and humor which makes for a cute compelling viewing. As much as you are repulsed, there's everytime some angry streak that sports a dark grin.The movie is obviously a weak budget affair and even though Sheil does his greatest to conceal this fact, from time to time it does look its budget. Visually there are interesting shots and sequences but the overall result remains cute inconsistent, with some rather amateurish shots in between. Same goes for the soundtrack of the film. Some dark ambient background melody and nice test of sound effects, but it never really gels into an audiovisual trip.Luckily mom and dad themselves create the movie a pleasure to watch. Their appearance alone, especially dad's, gives the movie a cute twisted feel. Fat English accents and an overly greasy facade only add more flair to the family. Both daughter and son are great additions too, adding their share of weirdness to the entire setup.While the lvl of gore is not noteworthy the movie is cute damn filthy in its own right. The creepiness of the family creates a bigger punch for what is now shown on screen. On the another hand, the movie never loses its touch of humor, keeping it clear from the realm of movies like Martyrs. Add some nicely built up tension near the end and what you have is a cute neat tiny horror flick that is sure to entertain and repulse at the same time.Mum & Dad is not as nice as any of its influences as Sheil's style is a tiny less refined. Still, there is potential aplenty and if the concept of a mellowed down mix between Calvaire and Martyrs appeals to you this is definitely a movie worth watching. 4.0*/5.0*
