They managed to keep the story somewhat in tact such as keeping the main characters names the same they even mentioned Queenie a few times.
This time around they added a daughter played by the beautiful Deborah Ann Woll who also plays Jessica on True Blood' Her character is confused and timid and more emotionally vulnerable than her brothers Ike Addley and Johnny.They added some Family drama and treachery to the victims as well which played perfectly into the plot of this story.
Rebecca DeMornay was amazing as Mother and spoke a few lines that were a direct homage to The Hand That Rocks The Cradle such as 'You cant take care of your child ,you can't even keep your man'.The acting was good overall and it was a non stop bloody thrill ride.
It wasn't a splatterfest like I had heard but it is certainly violent and there are some very graphic scenes and a couple of splatters.
There was one death scene in particular that stayed very true to the original. I'm speaking of the drain cleaner and television set...I have no clue why this wasn't in theaters because I can envision people in the audience rooting for the hero or heroine or heroes or heroines to do to Mother what The Herione did to DeMornay's Character, Peyton Flanders in The hand That Rocks The Cradle.It's the best movie of this type I have seen in quite awhile.
I bought the Blu ray and am watching it again today.
Guess What? This film delivers it all. Action, horror, drama, suspense, gore, torture, plot twists - all of the highest pedigree. This film is a good example of when remakes work. The original was very violent and crazy in that 80's way, but it was not suspensful and was predictable (by 1983 the formula was well established). The new version of Mother's Day is very well written. Mother, Ike, & Addley are all present, along with two younger new siblings (one of whom you will recognize from a certain sultry show), as well as nods to Queenie a few times. :)
I will say, I thought I had seen it all (and I pretty much have), but its nice to occasionally have a film that has all the right elements come together. By the end of this movie, I was on the edge of my seat and thats what a well crafted horror film should do.
Recommended for all horror fans. I will never think of a pool ball the same way again...
The violence and gore in this DVD had me crawling in my seat and generally I have a strong constitution. I was squirming in my seat because; the violence in Mothers Day was gratifying on levels only my psychiatrist truly understands. This is not a movie for young minds. This is the ultimate Wolf among the sheeple film. The propduction values had that movie of the week feel but, that said the movie rocked. There were plenty of plot twists and turns. The ending is kind of what you would expect for its type.
Honestly for the price Mothers Day can't be beat. Video quality 9.1 out of ten sometimes things were out of focus. Audio 8,5 out of ten sometimes the voices and sound faded out without warning or explanation. Mothers Day was at once funny and horrific.
