Parents

Parents
Dir. Bob Balaban, 1989.
United States, 81 minutes.
English.

Growing suspicious of his parents' insistence on finishing his dinner loaded with mystery meat, young Michael begins to suspect his quirky parents just might be cannibals. A horrifying black comedy styled like something from a McCarthy era family sitcom, the sometimes strange, sometimes terrifying visuals almost feel akin to Lynch's Blue Velvet, a subverted version of classic Americana sure to delight and disgust.
