If there’s one thing that I’ve learned from my obsession with horror movies, it’s this: ALWAYS LOCK YOUR DOORS! Oh, and buy a gun because you never know when some crazy mofos are going to come waltzing into your humble abode and start torturing you. And in the remake of the 1980 Troma classic, Mother’s Day, a group of friends find themselves in that very situation. Does no one pay attention to movies or watch enough episodes of I Survived…?!
The Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II,III, and IV) directed horror has finally received a U.S. release date of May 8! It’s not exactly Mother’s Day but it’s close enough, right? Anchor Bay films will bring the lovely family horror to audiences via DVD and Blu-Ray and will have a limited theatrical release in New York, LA, and Chicago on May 4th.
Mother’s Day is the graphic retelling of an already graphic film which revolves around a group of people who just so happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. The film follows three criminal broskis who fail at robbing a bank and seek refuge at their mother’s house. Problem is, mommy never told her boys that she lost the house and it was resold. Whoopsies. Looks like the new owners are in for a surprise of their lives when the fugitives show up on their doorstep demanding money and probably a whole bunch of other fun stuff!
To make the crazy situation ten times crazier…the mother of all crazy shows up to help her children take care of bidness (business but with a ghetto slang to it).
The torture-porntastic remake stars, Jaime King (My Bloody Valentine 3D), Shawn Ashmore (Frozen), Frank Grillo (The Grey), Brianna Evigan (Sorority Row), Deborah Ann Wohl (True Blood), and the bitchiest bitch of them all, Rebecca De Mornay, as mommy dearest.
It’s kind of sweet when you think about it, really. Would your mother kill for you?
