The original "Mother's Day" film was directed by Charles Kaufman, brother of Troma's Lloyd Kaufman, and released in the early 1980's in the middle of the slasher movie craze. It was wild, intense, gory, and included some very silly humor. I saw it on cable tv in 1983 on the night before Mother's Day and it scared the heck out of me when Queenie made her appearance at the end of the film. The 2010 version of "Mother's Day" is a reimagining of the orignal film. In a nod to the original film, there are a few references to Queenie. However, that is where the similarities end. Rebecca de Mornay plays the mother character in this movie and she owns every scene she is in through out the entire film. She is by turns motherly and caring and sadistic and brutal. She rules her family with an iron grip. You can read the synopsis of the film on the Amazon web site so I won't go into details. I will say this movie is very brutal, graphic, and intense. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this film. In a review of the film, Rue Morgue Magazine said that the movie was so good it should have been released in the theaters instead of dumped on DVD without a theatrical screening. I wholeheartedly agree. This movie deserves much better.
