Exclusive: Darren Bousman Talks Mother’s Day

Darren Bousman Talks Mother's DayWe recently had a chance to catch up with director Darren Bousman, who is currently in the midst of planning his upcoming project, Mother’s Day, to get the early word for you guys.

Bousman said, “The original is great, but I definitely want to do this on my terms. This isn’t going to be a straight up remake either. Every time I step behind the camera, it’s my job to try to bring something new to the genre.

Mother’s Day centers around a family of villains, led by a sadistic mother, who return to the house where they grew up and terrorize the new inhabitants. The 1980 version of Mother’s Day directed by Charles Kaufman came from the house of Troma, which means the original is chock full of cheesiness and laughs.

Don’t expect that with Bousman’s version, who promised fans a gore-filled experience.

This is going to be a hardcore experience,” explained Bousman. “Mother’s Day is about a seriously screwed up family so you can expect my version to be home to a lot of horrific stuff. It’s going to be way more sadistic than anything you’ve seen from me thus far.

Bousman and Twisted Pictures are aiming for a Mother’s Day 2010 release date.

    Cool. I liked the original but it could have been mined for straight scares rather than goofiness. I’m looking forward to Bousman’s take.
