There's one thing no one can deny about filmmaker Darren Bousman: When it comes to getting the word out about whatever project he's working on, he's an equal opportunity kind of guy. Whether he's tweeting the latest news to the public at large or releasing photos and other such goods to the horror websites, he makes sure everyone has evenly balanced access to information. Case in point -- two new behind-the-scenes stills that debuted on Brian Collins' "Horror Movie a Day" review blog.
Two more lovely vixens (or are they would-be victims?) have signed on to Darren Lynn Bousman's upcoming redux of Charles Kaufman's 1980 cult classic Mother's Day, one of which should come as no surprise given her previous working relationship with the director. Yes, Alexa (Repo!) Vega is joining the production, as is Sorority Row's Briana Evigan.

Not only was there members of the cast on hand but it was also the final performance to be filmed for Spooky Dan's Repo documentary. Check it out below!
