It's watchable you just will end up tuning out after a while.

I loved this movie, it is way more violent (intense torture scenes) than I thought it would be, but that is a good thing.

This movie is a remake of the original, though only loosely so.

I loved this movie, it is way more violent (intense torture scenes) than I thought it would be, but that is a good thing. It is also full of little twist and turns, secrets, betrayals, and revenge. The story starts quickly and holds your attention and you will love the irony of the ending. The best part of the movie is the decisions that the victims are forced to make to survive, you will be asking yourself if you could or would make the same decisions. Just sit back and enjoy.

"Look at me, if someone's lying there will be consequences. I guarantee it." After three teens commit a crime they run to their mother's house for safety. When they get there they find out that the home was foreclosed on and there are now new people living there. The mother (De Mornay) shows up and begins to take control to get her and her boys out safe. I have to say that going in I was expecting a pretty lame B movie. This was much better then I thought. Very tense and pretty scary in the fact that this movie could actually happen. Imagine having a party with your friends when a group of criminals with guns show up thinking it's their house. What would you do. This movie is made for me by the fact that Rebecca De Mornay is playing a similar character that she played in "Hand That Rocks The Cradle". She has the same level of "normal-creepiness" that is makes her seem at once normal and insane. To me that is creepy. This is a good watch. Overall, if the woman from "Hand That Rocks The Cradle" grew up this is the type of person and movie it would become. I give it a B.

Many of you eagerly awaiting to see this remake need hold on just a bit longer. Many are probably asking themselves "It's finished...so why the hold-up (no pun intended...)". All I can think of, seriously, is that the producers and directors can't find a way to release it theatrically in the USA without it receiving an NC-17. Within 5 minutes of it's beginning it gets very violent and doesn't let up. Not really a horror movie as it is a crime drama/thriller, it really packs a punch to your gut and never lets up. It's almost non-stop action and very brutal. To avoid this problem though of always having to wait for films to appear stateside, I suggest investing in a region free DVD player (that cost as little as $65.00 U.S. Funds if purchased on-line) and you can watch any DVD that rears it's ugly digital-celluloid head much sooner, (if ever), than their USA counterparts...you will NEVER be sorry. Back to Mother's Day, as for an official US release, I don't know, thats a tough call. It's not a follow-up to the original other than a couple of nods in that the "boys" have the same names (Adley)...and one of them mentions that he hates Disco, etc. All I can say in closing is that if you wait your just taking you're chances that you'll see a domestic release or as time goes on you'll just forget about it. It is a good one so I would make the effort to get it ASAP. You'll be happy you did...

The original "Mother's Day" film was directed by Charles Kaufman, brother of Troma's Lloyd Kaufman, and released in the early 1980's in the middle of the slasher movie craze. It was wild, intense, gory, and included some very silly humor. I saw it on cable tv in 1983 on the night before Mother's Day and it scared the heck out of me when Queenie made her appearance at the end of the film. The 2010 version of "Mother's Day" is a reimagining of the orignal film. In a nod to the original film, there are a few references to Queenie. However, that is where the similarities end. Rebecca de Mornay plays the mother character in this movie and she owns every scene she is in through out the entire film. She is by turns motherly and caring and sadistic and brutal. She rules her family with an iron grip. You can read the synopsis of the film on the Amazon web site so I won't go into details. I will say this movie is very brutal, graphic, and intense. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this film. In a review of the film, Rue Morgue Magazine said that the movie was so good it should have been released in the theaters instead of dumped on DVD without a theatrical screening. I wholeheartedly agree. This movie deserves much better.

"Mother's Day" is a movie I would love to have watched in certain NYC theaters where the patrons loudly shout their support for the good guys and scream curses at the villians.
In this totally enjoyable suspenser, you're given a gallery of some of the meanest villians to be seen on the screen in years--led by the deliciously evil Rebecca De Mornay.
We watch and cringe as this version of Ma Barker and her family torture a group of "goodies" with such obvious enjoyment that your cringes turn into gasps.
There are no heroes in this fun entertainment directed by Daron Lynn Bousman. The captured men and women do everything wrong. They're given chances to escape but fail to do so. We never know who will be killed or tortured next.
You sit on the edge of your seat awaiting the next burst of unexpected violence and it comes out of nowhere.
"Mother" is an especially fascinating portrait of evil since the actress appears to be a well-groomed matron or executive from Wall Street. With her perfectly coiffed hair, pearls, business attire, her wickedness shocks.
She can merely nod at one of her psycho sons in the direction of one of the good people who've displeased her, and we watch the poor woman have her hair set on fire--or watch in horror as an innocent man is scalded with boiling water.
This movie has first-rate production values, camerawork, editing, and great stunt work from a small army of hearty souls.
I kept seeing Rebecca De Mornay as Margaret White--the whacko mother of Carrie White in the horror classic, CARRIE.
In this movie, our mother is as slinky and deadly as a Queen Cobra.
