I feel like I’ve been covering Darren Bousman’s “Mother’s Day” remake forever, even though it’s only been two years. I guess the film has just been stuck for so long on someone’s shelf that it just feels like it will never get freed. Well, that changes this May 4th, when the film gets a limited theatrical release, and then hits DVD and Blu-ray a scant 4 days later on May 8th. So why even bother with a theatrical release? Contract obligations, I suspect. Anyways, check out six dangerous clips from the movie if you’re still trying to decide if you want to risk the wrath of this one very dangerous mother.
After a bank robbery gone wrong, three brothers head home … only to discover that their mother lost the house in a foreclosure. The new owners and their guests, gathered for an ill-timed birthday party, become the brothers’ unwitting hostages. Their mother and sister arrive, and it soon becomes obvious that Mother will do absolutely anything to protect her children. In one terrifying evening, Mother brilliantly takes control of the situation and masterminds her sons’ escape. Slides will be taken, secrets revealed, and sins punished as the hostages struggle to make it through the night.
