So extrange, life in the suburbs with domestic terror, parents occupied in thier sex games rather than child's nightmares.
View all Parents (1989) reviews
Description: Michael is a young boy living in a typical 1950's suburbanite home... except for his bizarre and horrific nightmares, and continued unease around his parents.

Movies I watched in July 2019 (22 movies items)

" Date: 7/8/2019 Viewed: Amazon Prime Re-watch Note: I haven't seen this movie in over 20 years since it was on late night cable television. This movie is still great and does a good job on being a satire of the 1950s suburban lifestyle. This movie has a dark and surreal atmosphere to it that I really like a lot. The dream sequences in this movie are my favorite part of this movie because they are so strange and creepy to watch. I also like all of the characters and the acting in this movie is"

TDcore's Horror Journal 2018: Pt. 3 (50 movies items)

" This is certainly not what most will be expecting from the appearance of this film. Most critics seem to have treated it as a horror comedy, and though there are smidgens of pitch black humor, this is just a strange and very surreal film. It's not perfect and suffers from several rather large flaws, but it's unique and haunting enough to be very worth your time. It's also a very psychological film as we experience it through the eyes of an obviously disturbed little boy who realizes that his"
