I watched this horror movie today and the film is good right from the start. Its about a young polish girl who is kidnapped and taken hostage by a psychotic family. The storyline could be compared to a British version of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The acting was excellent and it was very believeable. My only criticism is the film could have been longer and things seemed to come to a head quite quickly near the end of the film. However, this film is well worth a look if you like horror movie's.

my dad ironically, told me this film was rubbish. I think he may have been watching a different film though because I thought it was pretty good. With a great performance from the polish girl who actually react to her situation the way you imagine a normal person would. Infact I don't recall her falling on the floor and crawling around once.

I'm not so sure however about the overall story line, whilst it was original I can not see why the other two 'children' would not have escaped given they went out to work each day.

Other than that it was good viewing and has a few sick scenes for those that like that sort of thing.

Yes, this is extremely uncomfortable viewing at times but it is a superb example of what can be achieved with a tiny budget and a small window for production and filming. The story of a Polish girl lured back into the family from hell, it is full of black humour and sadistic moments. The relationships between the existing family are very unsettling and the new "daughter" upsets the apple cart and, in turn, somewhat upsets theirs. It is the setting, the acting and the truly surreal moments which make it stand out from others of its type. I guess some would argue that the violence (and there is nowhere near as much as in films like "Saw" and "Hostel") is gratuitous but it is not a blood bath type of film, more of a sadistic and deeply unpleasant one. These sort of films are so difficult to rate. Give it a 4 or a 5 and say "excellent" and you wonder if you are quite right in the head to think something so uncomfortable to watch is good. Those who find anything of this sort disgusting probably think we're sick (and one wonders why they even pick up the DVD). We're not. Horror should be done like this. If you like unusual horror films then this is a must-see.

"Mum and Dad" is a United Kingdom take on sadistic families such as those in the The Texas Chainsaw Massacre [1974] or The Firefly family of House of 1,000 Corpses [2003] ] fame.

The story is that of a young Polish girl working at an airport, who is lured to the home of a co-worker where she is then enslaved for torture and mutilation by a perverse and psychopathic cannibal family.

However as it's set in England, there are no guns, and it's grittier for it; not least because a female Polish immigrant worker was abducted and then murdered in Scotland in similar circumstances not that long ago, and of course it throws up the none-too-distant shadows of English serial killers Fred and Rosemary West and their home dungeon.

Olga Fedori plays the Polish girl Lena very well, initially capturing the polite, friendly yet slightly nervous manners of a foreigner trying to fit in without causing offence and yet at the same time remaining cautious. It's this caution that means she has to be tricked so that she misses the last bus, and has no option but to accompany her co-worker, the "Daughter", back to her home ... and into the clutches of Mum and Dad.

Dad gets his kicks from chopping things up, Mum gets hers from playing with it first, and the children assist them with their perversions in order to stay in their good books, gain favours, or at least to avoid punishment.

Watched this without knowing anything about it. As a huge fan of the horror genre, I am used to disappointment and lacklustre offerings.
This is an outrageously good horror film; it centres around a 'family' who kidnap and torture a young Polish imigrant. Whereas there are elements of graphic violence, there is so much more to this film that is unsaid and understated, making it an absolute masterpiece. A film of ideas which places horror back in the everyday and the common place, a context which is so much more satisfying than glossy high budget remakes.
If you have even a passing interest in horror, or have the stomach to take such material, this is a beautiful crafted and sensitively made film that trawls the darkest of places. It's brilliant to see British horror back on the map. A must see.

After reading some of the reviews I got the feeling that some people didn't 'get' this film at all. Its not your standard horror gorefest really - although there are some really quite disturbing sick moments (mostly sexual). Theres a twisted and very dark thread of humour running through this film...the mentions in other reviews of The League Of Gentlemen certainly rung a bell for me. The acting IS a bit shonky in places but for a Brit horror film its deffo worth checking out. Leaves a very horrible taste in your mouth afterwards for sure.
