An official trailer has been released for director Darren Lynn Bousman's remake of the insanely disturbing cult film Mother's Day. It seems like this movie should have already been released in theaters and out on DVD. I've been reporting on it for the last couple of years. The film stars Rebecca De Mornay as the jacked up mother you do not want to cross. This remake doesn't look anything like the original film, and it also doesn't look as crazy or disturbing. I'll admit that De Morney was perfectly cast in the role of mother. It also stars Jaime King, Matt O'Leary, Frank Grillo, and Deborah Ann Woll.
Here's the synopsis for the film:
After a bank robbery gone wrong, three brothers head for home, hoping their Mother (Rebecca De Mornay) can provide them with a getaway. The youngest brother, Johnny (Matt O'Leary), has been shot and their back-stabbing former partner has gotten away with all the cash.
But when the brothers get home, they find that all their stuff is gone and Mother is nowhere to be found: she lost the house months ago in a foreclosure. The new owners, Beth and Daniel Sohapi (Jaime King and FrankGrillo) and their guests, gathered for an ill-timed birthday party, become the brothers' unwitting hostages.
Not long after, Mother arrives, along with the boys' sister Lydia (Deborah Ann Woll), and it soon becomes clear that Mother will do absolutely anything to protect her children. In one terrifying evening, she brilliantly takes control of the situation and masterminds her sons' escape from the law.
Sides will be taken, secrets revealed, and sins punished as the hostages struggle to make it through the night alive.
Watch the trailer for the film and let us know if it's something you'd be interested in watching. Have you seen the original Mother's Day movie? If so how do you think this one will compare?
