Darren Bousman’s “Mother’s Day” has been on the rack for some time since it wrapped up production in 2010. Fact is, if you wanted to see the film, you’d have found ways to see it by now, since it’s been playing festival circuits all around the country the last two years. But in case you weren’t that intrepid, Anchor Bay Entertainment will be releasing the film theatrically in limited release on May 4th in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, and then on DVD and Blu-ray May 8th for you homebodies. DVD and Blu-ray cover art below.
Directed by Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, III and IV) with screen story and screenplay by Scott Milam based on the original MOTHER’S DAY written by Charles Kaufman and Warren Leight, MOTHER’S DAY is a graphic remake of the Troma horror classic. After a bank robbery gone wrong, three brothers go home to hide out…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.
Starring Rebecca DeMornay, Jamie King, Briana Evigan, Patrick John Flueger, Deborah Ann Woll, Lyriq Bent, Frank Grillo and Shawn Ashmore.
