More torture-porn from the boring creators of SAW sequels. I'm not entertained by burns and stab wounds. Didn't need this remake.
genre Horror
synopsis From the maker of Saw II, III and IV, MOTHER’S DAY is a graphic remake of the Troma horror classic, Mother’s Day. After a bank robbery gone wrong, three brothers go home to hideout…only to discover that their Mother (Rebecca De Mornay) lost their house in a foreclosure. The new owners and their party guests become the depraved brothers’ unwitting hostages. Their sadistic Mother soon arrives and brilliantly takes control of the situation, ratcheting up the terror. As the hostages struggle desperately to survive the harrowing torture, they realize that there is nothing a Mother won’t do to protect her children. Based on “Mother’s Day” written by Charles Kaufman and Warren Leight, screenstory and screenplay by Scott Milam and Directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, MOTHER’S DAY also stars Jaime King,  Briana Evigan, Patrick Flueger, Deborah Ann Woll, Matt O’ Leary, Jessie Rusu, Frank Grillo, Warren Kole, and Shawn Ashmore.
