Be Thankful for Mum & Dad

I wanted to bring this story to you guys sooner … but stuffing dead bodies down the toilet sort of caused a large flood in the Dread Central office. Leason learned!

STYD dug up a trailer for Steven Sheil’s Mum & Dad, a UK horror pic that was produced thanks to Film London‘s Microwave project. The program “challenges film-makers to shoot a full length feature film for up to £100,000” and it really has yielded some good results.

Mum & Dad, played by Perry Dbeson and Dido Miles, “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.

A release in Britain is planned, but distribution deals for the US are still under wraps.
