Parents

Wow. Have you ever seen this movie? Because I haven't until right now. I was checking out what movies they had available for view on hulu.com and clicked on "Parents" unsure what to expect. I saw the picture, read the synopsis (kid discovers his parents are cannibals) and promptly asked Charles if he'd ever heard of it. "OH YEAH!!" he exclaimed. "That's the movie I was trying to think of when I was thinking of movies with amazing soundtracks!"

So I began watching, thinking it was going to be something like the movie Fido (a zombie film for the whole family), or at least funny in some way, as it does have Randy Quaid in it. Nope. Creepy all the way, but the happy musical juxtaposition in the midst of the Angelo Badalamenti score (not to mention a normal little boy) added to the creepiness and made it kind of amusing.

First class movie! I could watch it again and again!

I saw that a few months ago on Hulu and I walked away from it uneasy. It was VERY indy feeling and the whole film felt kind of off kilter, which I assume is what they were going for.

It's a neat movie to say the least.

Randy Quaid played up the psycho "I may kill you, I may not" dad pretty well.

Fido and Shaun of the dead are my favourite zombie movies. Don't get me wrong, I love the horror movies, too, but they've just lost their edge over the years, and I prefer the funnier stories.

i saw this film when it first came out in the theaters. my mom bought me the ticket, cause i was like 9. the person selling the ticket asked her, "are you sure you want him to see this?" she simply said, "i trust him."

brilliant!

I'd totally take my 9-year-old to see this... especially if I wanted to make sure it listened to mommy, or maybe if I wanted it to be a vegetarian ;)
