Mom and Dad - Official Trailer.
The film begins with a mother putting on music for her child as she sets her car on railroad tracks and leaves said child in the car to die. The Ryans are a family of four with a strained relationship. Brent, the father, does not approve of his daughter Carly's new boyfriend; Carly considers her mother, Kendall, out of touch. She also fights with her younger brother, Josh. She is forced to cancel plans with her boyfriend, Damon, because of her visiting grandparents. As Carly is at school, an unexplained static starts transmitting through TV screens and radios. The effect is seen as the Ryans' housekeeper murders her own daughter in front of a terrified Josh and a mob of parents rushes to Carly's school in an effort to kill their children by any means they can (with Carly seeing one classmate being stabbed by his mother after he scales a fence to reach her). Carly escapes with her friend Riley and hides out at her house, where Riley's mom strangles Riley to death. Carly runs home in terror, running into Damon - who has killed his own father in self-defense. Damon tells Carly that the parents only want to kill their own kids, and accompanies her home to get Josh somewhere safe. Kendall goes to the hospital to be present for her sister Jeannie's baby, but the static transmits just after Jeannie gives birth, causing her to attempt to kill her baby daughter as Kendall protects her niece. She escapes the hospital, seeing reports of the mass hysteria on television: the static gives parents a compulsion to slaughter their children. In an effort to protect her own children, Kendall heads home.
