Michael is a young boy living in the suburbs of 50s Massachusetts. He's made several friends at school, his dad works at the Toxico chemical plant, and his mother is the pinnacle of the 1950s housewife. The only oddity in Michael's life is when dinner time rolls around; whenever he asks about where such large pieces of meat originate from, his parents remain aggressively silent on the answer. This takes a toll on the boy, leaving him questioning of just how ideal his family may really be. After being told to never go into the basement, Michael becomes hysterical and starts to believe that not only are his parents cannibals, but that he may very well be next on the menu for his disobedience. After confessing to the school's counselor about his fears, only for her to tell him that he's just possessed of a wild imagination, Michael fears for his life and wonders just what he can do to stop his mom and dad from continuing the practice. Parents is an American black comedy from 1989 that features the acting talent of Randy Quaid and is distributed by Vestron Pictures. It has a total running time of 81 minutes.
