Well, it’s not exactly on Mother’s Day as we might have hoped, but finally Darren Bousman’s Mother’s Day redux has a firm home video release date… and will also enjoy a limited theatrical run thanks to Anchor Bay!
From the Press Release:
There’s nothing more comforting than the love of a Mother for her children. But beware any Mother when her children are threatened! And for a certain diabolical Mother and her vicious progeny, she’ll send anyone who threatens her brood straight to Hell itself!
Anchor Bay Films presents the ultimate “Mother” with the May 8th release of Mother’s Day on Blu-ray™+DVD Combo Pack and on DVD. With an all-star cast including Rebecca De Mornay (The Hand That Rocks The Cradle, Wedding Crashers), Jaime King (Red Tails, My Bloody Valentine, Sin City), Briana Evigan (S. Darko, Step Up 2: The Streets), Patrick John Flueger (Footloose, Brothers), Deborah Ann Woll (HBO’s “True Blood”), Lyriq Bent (Saw II-IV, Skinwalkers), Frank Grillo (The Grey, Minority Report) and Shawn Ashmore (the X-Men films, Frozen), Mother’s Day is the chilling and gorier remake of the 1980 Troma classic by the same name. SRP is $26.98 for the DVD, and $29.99 for the Blu-ray™+DVD combo.
Mother’s Day will also have an exclusive theatrical engagement in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago on May 4th in select theaters.
Directed by Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, III and IV) with story and screenplay by Scott Milam based on the original Mother’s Day written by Charles Kaufman and Warren Leight, Mother’s Day is a graphic remake of the Troma horror classic. After a bank robbery gone wrong, three brothers go home to hide out… only to discover that 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.
Ain’t It Cool News called Mother’s Day “I Spit on Your Grave mixed with Texas Chainsaw Massacre with heavy portions of Friday the 13th thrown in,” while Dread Central declared, “Mama’s boys have once again made their Mother very proud.”
The Mother’s Day Blu-ray™ and DVD feature an audio commentary with director Darren Lynn Bousman and actor Shawn Ashmore.
