Hey, look! It’s another in a parade of 80s horror/thriller remakes! This time, it’s Saw 2, 3, and 4‘s director Darren Lynn Bousman remaking the Troma film Mother’s Day, originally directed by Lloyd Kaufman’s brother Charles. A group of fugitives take refuge in a seemingly-random house, holding the group of people there hostage, while Mother (Rebecca De Morney emerging from obscurity) arrives to sort the whole mess out.
There’s not a lot to be terribly excited for here, though it’s always important to hold out hope. That said, this film was originally shot in 2009, premiered at the 2010 Fantastic Fest, and has sat on a shelf until this year, where it releases May 4th in time for a May 8th VOD/home media release. I get this feeling this flick is no Cabin in the Woods, if you follow.
