Editorial Reviews

Lovin sons always do what their mothers tell them to…even if it's to KILL!!! The Troma Team is proud to bring you Charles Kaufman's Mother's Day, the independent horror classic which redefines the term ''family values.'' This stylish, horrific and darkly humorous film is a worldwide favorite. In the spirit of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Mother's Day is a celebration of gore and depravity that is certain to offend the weak of heart!

5.0 out of 5 stars "I'M A SICK WOMAN"!!! March 25, 2005
Wow! Words can hardly express how much I love this movie! This is a true 80's horror classic, with a little bit of camp thrown in for fun! I can't say enough about this under seen little gem! For it's time and genre, the gore and killings are just fantastic. I really dig the script as well. I won't say much about the plot, as it is described in other reviews. I will say that in my opinion, the acting is absolutely fantastic(contrary to other reviews).

The three actresses (Nancy Hendrickson, Deborah Luce, Tiana Pierce)that star in this movie seem to have a great chemistry amongst themselves. Their laughing and playing comes off smoothly and they are quite convincing as old college pals. Their scenes together flow naturally throughout the film and do not come off as contrived in the slightest bit.

The brothers Ike (Holden McGuire) and Addley (Michael McCleery) are SUPERB in their roles!! They truly give off the creepiest vibe with such ease that it's hard to tell that they are acting. Lastly, Rose Ross is fantastic in her role as Momma. She can be sweet, demanding, scary, demented, and creepy without batting an eyelash. People have criticized this film for years but it is a film that really entertains the serious horror fan. I have been watching these movies for 25 years and this is definitely one in my top 5!

Mother's Day achieves what it sets out to do!! It scares its audience first, and then successfully makes you care about its characters before terrifying you all over again!!

Do you root for killers, do you root for the victims, or do you root for Queeenie?? ;-)

Hell .. I root for them ALL every time I watch it!!

I am thrilled that Troma realeased this on DVD! Good job guys!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Tromatic 80's Classic! November 23, 2004
Mother's Day is a classic piece of early 80's cinema that demandingly pelts the viewer with violence, gore, black humor and wit. This is more than a low budget splatter-fest and if you keep your eyes and ears peeled you'll catch all kinds of sub-texts and social commentaries that this type of picture is usually devoid of. Not surprisingly, Mother's Day remains as caustic and telling 25 years after its release as it was in 1980.

The storyline is simple, three former college co-eds escape the city for a weekend of relaxation in the woods. Of course relaxation is the last thing that these city twits are gonna get because brothers Ike and Adly are hell bent on having their way with them, and rest is certainly not on the menu.

The girls are dragged unmercifully to the inbreds' shack and are formally introduced to Mother. Mother approves of their latest earmarks, "Boys, you've made your mother very proud." From here on out the girls are tortured and raped, humiliated and debased in a variety of savage ways.

All the while Ike and Adly spout sound bytes from movies, music and television. They almost have their own language that only they can understand-like they're speaking in code. To the girls' dismay part of their torture includes pantomiming scenes from the clan's favorite movies. This type of behavior somehow validates these red-necks and they come away thinking that they are normal; or better yet, "citified."

This brood of backwards hill-jacks are a poisoned by-product of heartless, soulless Pop culture. They've O.D.'d on saccharine soaked cinema and gimmicky bullsh*t rock. Ike and Adly are intellectually incapable of recognizing fiction from nonfiction.

2.0 out of 5 stars If you like trash, you will LOVE this November 14, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Okay, so it's not ALL bad. It has its moments of gore, but it was not NEARLY as gory as i expected it to be. The story goes like this: Three annoying women, who have been friends forever go on a trip to the woods. They are captured by an old lady and her two stupid redneck sons. One of the girls is beaten and raped, the others escape and want revenge. The ending wil make you think "what the...." and then you will laugh. Buy it if you love trash, otherwise don't!

5.0 out of 5 stars "MY BOYS NEVER FORGET THEIR MAMA" April 30, 2006
By BUB13
This movie is one of Tromas very best! This movie is in the tradition of HILLS HAVE EYES and TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE. This film didnt feel to much like a Troma movie, Because it didnt have to much of the usual Comedy mixed with horror style. It was basically a straight horror movie. BUY THIS DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mother's Day July 24, 2005
A must have cult favorite! This one redefines the wholesome of family values. It is a celebration of gore and mayhem in the spirit of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

The movie starts out with three girl friends that get together every year for a relaxing weekend. This year they decide to retreat to the woods for a campout. Sounds innocent enough... However they end up in the midsts of a sadistic backwoods family.

They are taken prisoners by two demented sons to the delight of the equally demented Mother, and are forced to partake in unbelieveabe acts.

But the death of one of the girls means revenge by any means possible by the surviving two. They will use a myraid of household objects to do the deeds. Blood spurts everywhere from mutilated genitals...get the picture...and dear old Mom gets her due reward too.

But as we rejoice for the two women reaping there revenge, there is something or someone still lurking in the woods...will they survive their horrific ordeal...or fall prey to another evil?

I highly suggest seeing this one...especially if you are a fan of the Trama movies!
