The trailer refers to the movie as a "satire" and yet I cannot even begin to imagine what this movie might be satirizing beyond overprotective parents which even then it doesn't manage to do anything meaningful with it.
The children are only allowed to watch home videos of themselves on the TV, while the parents secretly watch porn in their room.
The scene with the cat being disemboweled, or maybe the fact that the father and mother teach the children that cats are the most evil animal in the world and will brutally kill you if given the slightest chance was bizarre(so deffinatly watch this movie if you are a cat lover, you can thank me ....
