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.
When Davis Green’s alluring young cousin Alexis appears on his doorstep one night, he discovers that his father has kept a side of his family secret for thirty years. Against his father’s wishes, Davis travels to rural, Upstate New York to meet his other cousins. Quickly developing a strong connection with them, he sets out with Alexis to reunite their broken family. But in getting to know each other, Davis and Alexis realize they are perhaps more like their own fathers than they thought. As the pair uncovers the incident that tore their family apart, the two cousins must resist the temptation to keep their fathers’ deep-rooted grudge going, rather than end it.
