Review

"One of the best retribution scenes in the annals of film history!" -- Trent Haaga, Tapeheads

Product Description

Loving sons always do what their mothers tell them to...even if it's to kill. Directed by Charles Kaufman (brother of Troma President Lloyd Kaufman), the classic Mother’s Day delivers laughs and chills with liberal doses of nail-biting suspense. When three college buddies decide to rekindle their comraderie with a camping trip, they become the unwitting prey of a very dysfunctional family. As unforgettable as Deliverance, as terrifying as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre with a twisted statirical humor in the Kaufman vein, this Mother's Day will leave you feeling frightened and amazed!

Customer Reviews

One of the best low budget horror films ever.
Hellion
Many of the Troma movies have a very dark and twisted sense of humor to them, in additon to the drama and suspense or horror.
Peter
Words can hardly express how much I love this movie!

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!

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.

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!

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.

My review is based off of the MOTHER'S DAY - DIRECTOR'S CUT - TROMA DVD!!! - I have had this DVD at least 7 yrs.- These 2 boys LOVE THEIR MOTHER! This independent horror classic redefines the term "Family Values." This Mother's Day is a celebration of gore & depravity that is certain to offend the weak of heart! Heads roll, blood spurts & genitals are mutilated as the women use a myriad of household objects to do battle with Mother's loving sons. This Mother's Day will leave you feeling frightened, amused & downright disgusted! Digitally Mastered Director's Cut Feature featuring a Grisly commentary by Director Charles Kaufman! How Tromites celebrate Mother's Day on Tromavile Cafe! A Special Kaufman Family Introduction! The Power of the Radiation March & Other Troma trailers! Fear the History Of Lloyd Kaufman as Told by His Brother Charles! Approximate Running Time 90 mins. If you are a serious 100% "B-MOVIE FAN" this [Blu-Ray] is A MUST HAVE, & it would be OUTSTANDING if you could find the DIRECTOR'S CUT DVD ON TROMA TEAM VIDEO!
