Consensus: Mom and Dad's gonzo premise serves as an effective springboard for a wickedly dark, bloody comedy - and an appropriately over-the-top performance from Nicolas Cage.

What makes Mom and Dad even creepier and chilling than a standard zombie movie is the parents don't turn into frothing-at-the-mouth, dead-eyed, robotic creatures.

It's a fun effort in a genre that hasn't gotten much of a workout recently, and that's worthwhile in itself.

Cage makes Face/Off and Raising Arizona faces,but he's actually crazier before the outbreak.He does the Hokey Pokey with sincere passion but that's just how he expresses his midlife crisis.It's not the alphabet but it's something Cage hasn't done before.

The ultimate point of "Mom and Dad" is that it doesn't take a rage virus to make a middle-aged man want to put on his old Misfits T-shirt and smash something.

As you can imagine, the homicidal frenzy gives Mr. Cage plenty of opportunity to go full him, which, in this case, doesn't yield as much fun as you might have hoped.

What Mom & Dad has to say about the ... parent-child relationship is intriguing, but how the movie says those things is at once overblown and undercooked.

Watching adults murder or attempt to murder toddlers, teens and even a newborn baby just isn't funny. At times, it's downright sickening.

Cage delivers one of his most vibrant performances in years. But it's in the service of poorly choreographed action scenes and a script in which the Ryans' midlife crisis is set up by an awkward flashback.

Daily Dead

A mix of survival/pandemic horror with a steady flow of pitch-black comedy coursing through its wonderfully nasty veins, Mom and Dad is just the right amount of wrong for this writer.
