Trailer: M.O.M. (MOTHERS OF MONSTERS) Takes Unflinching Look at the Making of Murderers
Indie Rights has announced the theatrical world premiere and Digital HD rollout of Tucia Lyman’s hard-hitting M.O.M. (Mothers of Monsters). Melinda Page Hamilton (Netflix’s Messiah, How to Get Away with Murder) headlines as a troubled single mother who fears that her teenage son, played by Bailey Edwards in a star-making debut, is a duplicitous psychopath. Desperate to know if her son is capable of murder, she begins recording him at home on a network of spy cameras.
Give the film’s trailer a spin embedded at the top of the article.
Of the film’s genesis and release, Lyman said, “I’ve always been intrigued by real-life horror films that use the dysfunctions of society as a vessel to explore the truth. M.O.M. is a work of narrative fiction, but much of the behavior, scenarios, and dialogue were borrowed from the journals and publications of real-life school shooters and their parents. It is a very confronting film, much like the subject matter itself, and I hope it will contribute to the national debate surrounding mental health stigma and gun violence in America.”
M.O.M. (Mothers of Monsters) will open in Los Angeles for a weeklong run at the Arena Cinelounge on Friday the 13th of March, before the film premieres on Cable and Digital VOD.
