4.0 out of 5 stars 'MOTHER KNOWS BEST; ?
This type of film will never have great-actors on board, however the film itself, great acting aside, is----gruesome and often intense.
A bank robbery goes pear-shape, the brothers now on the run head for 'home' not knowing their mother had been evicted.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new but watchable
'Mother's Day' is a pretty standard house invasion movie about three psycho brothers on the run who take shelter in their family home not realising that their mother lost it and moved out two months ago. They interrupt a party of middle income type yuppies and the usual atrocities begin. When mother turns up with their sister in tow things look to be settling down until...

This review is from: Mother's Day [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This type of film will never have great-actors on board, however the film itself, great acting aside, is----gruesome and often intense.
A bank robbery goes pear-shape, the brothers now on the run head for 'home' not knowing their mother had been evicted.
a young couple, now the owners along with their party guests are about to receive the uninvited brothers into the house.
with one of the brother's injured the ''Mother'' and her daughter are about to join the party, trouble is neither the brothers or the ''Mother'' are in a 'party' mood.
The owners and guests are about to experience 'Hell''
The mother is played by 'Rebecca De Morney' who has played a similar role before in ''The Cradle Will Fall'' ( this role does suit her style )
Not the best ''Horror''film you'll see, however if you enjoy 'sadistic' and sustained violence........it's worth a spin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a remake of Troma's film, 19 April 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mother's Day [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
While the Troma film was goofy in it's wonderfully violent excess, this new version jettisons the broad comedy for a straight horror-thriller. And to well above-average effect. Performances are excellent, and the story is new (with just the basic theme from Troma's film). Atmospheric and tense - and Mother's domineering entrance really does propel the film along. I imported this from the UK because our local Australian-New Zealand release is cropped to 1.78:1. This is the correct 2.35:1 aspect ratio.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good horror/Gore fest, 3 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good horror/Gore fest. If this type of film appeals, i recommend. New family trapped in their own home by bank robbing son's. You think that is bad enough, they call their mom to help, doesn't sound to horrifying, but she is so calm about how to protect her son's and what to do with the new occupants and their friends. It's chilling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gleefully sadistic and wonderfully over the top violent blood and gruesome gore epic with some nice acting, 23 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mother's Day [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Mmm another remake, another slasher remake. This one is fantastically brutal and cruel. Not an easy watch but it's an 18 for a reason. And that x man is HOT. Also Rebecca De Mornay is magnificent as the matriarch of this warped brood. A hugely satisfying torture porn masterpiece. Jaimie King from the My Bloody Valentine remake is immensely impressive as the final, or not in this extreme rare case, girl. Matt O'Leary also scores as the profusely bleeding youngest son. I recommend this stupendously harsh horror to every horror fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new but watchable, 14 July 2011

'Mother's Day' is a pretty standard house invasion movie about three psycho brothers on the run who take shelter in their family home not realising that their mother lost it and moved out two months ago. They interrupt a party of middle income type yuppies and the usual atrocities begin. When mother turns up with their sister in tow things look to be settling down until it becomes apparent that mum is just as bad as her brood. What lifts this slightly is the better than average performances by the cast starring Rebecca De Mornay and Deborah Ann Woll from 'True Blood'. There is nothing new in this film, no new and inventive ways to die and no atrocities that you haven't already seen in a dozen other similar films. All that's left really is to work out the order in which everyone is going to die.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent seige thriller with extreme violence, 17 Jan 2012
This review is from: Mother's Day [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
It's no surprise that Mother's Day's director Darren Lynn Bousman and his peer James Wan helped kick start the Saw franchise, as their styles and sensibilities are so alike. Wan, who went on to direct Dead Silence, Death Sentence and Insidious could easily have directed this, with its flawed lead characters, merciless but human villains, and searing tension.
Starting with a home invasion that occurs due to believably simple human error, things can only escalate when the criminals who have taken a house full of people hostage discover they're all over the news for a botched robbery. Add a potentially fatal wounding and the arrival of the criminals' family matriarch Rebecca De Mornay (most famous for The Hand That Rocks The Cradle) and matters start to reach full speed.
The script is daftly fun, but also inventive, setting things during a threatening tornado storm that means everyone's bunkered down in basements and less likely to hear their neighbours' cries for help. And De Mornay is superb, playing her hard edged character with a poise and dignity, instead of the deranged eye-rolling I was expecting.
The hostages are fleshed out just enough for you to care about them, and the criminals are a distinctive and complex bunch.
There's also enough of a helping of toe-curling torture and gore to make horror fans and thriller fans alike cringe, as well as a healthy spadeful of well-planned tension sequences.
Shawn Ashmore (Iceman in the X-Men movies) gets to have the most fun as one of the hostages that they need the most but De Mornay is the one who sticks in the memory, appropriately.
Highly recommended for fans of harsh, violent thrillers.
