One way to approach a parent who seems out of control is with your concerns about their health. Out of control anger could be the result of depression, it could be a sign of a physical problem (someone mentioned sleep disorders, above--I also though of thyroid problems.)
With my mom, when I was 15 and 16, I was not much better. I mean, when she got angry, i got angry back! But I did, at that age, set a limit with her. The limit was, no hitting. I set it in a not very good way, by threatening to hit her back. My niece did something similar by calling the police when her mom threatened to hit her.
