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 the child in the car to die.
The Ryans are a family of four with a strained relationship. Brent (Nicolas Cage), the father, does not approve of his daughter Carly's new boyfriend Damon; Carly (Anne Winters) considers her mother Kendall (Selma Blair) out of touch, fights with her younger brother Josh (Zackary Arthur), and is currently upset about canceling plans with her boyfriend because her grandparents are visiting.
While Carly is at school, radios and TV screens suddenly start transmitting unexplained static. 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 to kill their children however they can; Carly sees one classmate being stabbed by his mother after he scales a fence to reach her. Carly escapes with her friend Riley (Olivia Crocicchia), whose mother strangles her when the two girls reach Riley's house. Carly runs home in terror and finds Damon (Robert T. Cunningham), who has killed his father in self-defense. Telling Carly that the parents only want to kill their own kids, he accompanies her home to get Josh somewhere safe.
Kendall goes to the hospital where her sister Jeannie is giving birth, but the static transmits just afterward, causing her to attempt to kill her newborn daughter as Kendall tries to save her. Kendall escapes the hospital after seeing television reports of the mass hysteria: the static compels parents to slaughter their children. Kendall heads home to protect her own children.
