Today the folks at Revolver Entertainment released the first look at the cover art for their May 5th 2009 release of the UK import “>Mum & Dad, which you can see below. So far this is the only detail on the US release of the film; mum’s the word on any extras or special features that might be included.
There’s a bit of a buzz on this film going around, and the opinions are wildly varying. It sounds like yet another take of the sick and twisted family unit who, in presumably unique and special ways, enjoy taking in various travelers and bringing them to bad, bad ends. Could this simply be a British take on The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, or might there be a clever new spin? It certainly looks like it has a good bit of dark humor, and that’s always a welcome thing. Looking forward seeing which way the hammer falls!
