Nicolas Cage and Selma Blair become parents from hell in MOM AND DAD, the over-the-top black-comic shocker coming next week. A trailer and poster have now been released; jump past the jump to see them.

MOM AND DAD rampages into select theaters and onto DVD from Momentum Pictures on Friday, January 19. Anne Winters, Zackary Arthur, Lance Henriksen, Robert Cunningham, Olivia Crocicchia and Rachel Melvin also star in the film, which was written and directed by Brian Taylor (one-half of the Taylor/Neveldine team behind the CRANK movies and the Cage vehicle GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE) and shot by Daniel Pearl (cinematographer of both the original TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE and the remake). Cage and Blair play a married couple who have become dissatisfied with their suburban lives, and become caught up in a wave of mass hysteria that causes parents to turn homicidally against their children, forcing their teenage daughter (Winters) and young son (Arthur) into a fight for survival.
