MOM AND DAD: A- 

Four words: Nicolas Cage on OVERDRIVE! Destined to be a cult classic, this irreverent Shaun of the Dead meets Parenthood mash-up starts with a bang and doesn’t let up. When unexplained events cause parents to turn on their children, the results are equally horrifying and laugh-out-loud funny—it’s a good sign when the audience around you is vocally invested in the onscreen carnage and hilarity. Although flashback scenes hinder the pacing, seeing Nic Cage sledgehammer a pool table to oblivion while screaming “The Hokey-Pokey” is worth the price of admission alone. But wait until the grandparents arrive . . .
