There’s nothing more comforting than the love of a Mother for her children. But beware any Mother when her children are threatened! And for a certain diabolical Mother and her vicious progeny, she’ll send anyone who threatens her brood straight to Hell itself!
Well, OK then.
From SAW II (and III... and IV) director Darren Lynne Bousman comes MOTHER'S DAY, a "gorier" remake of the 1980 horror classic of the same name (directed by Charles Kaufman, who is also a co-executive producer on this new version). The film features Rebecca De Mornay as the titular Mother, appearing here as a slightly more deranged and less composed version of Kathleen Turner in SERIAL MOM. Trailer after the jump.
Synopsis: After a bank robbery gone wrong, three brothers go home to hideout… only to discover that their Mother (Rebecca De Mornay) lost their house in a foreclosure. The new owners and their party guests become the depraved brothers’ unwitting hostages. Their sadistic Mother soon arrives and brilliantly takes control of the situation, ratcheting up the terror. As the hostages struggle desperately to survive the harrowing torture, they realize that there is nothing a Mother won’t do to protect her children.
MOTHER'S DAY will have a limited engagement in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago beginning May 4th before appearing on DVD and Blu-ray on May 8 - just in time for Mother's Day (Sunday, May 13).
