Strong coarse language and coarse language

Director: Darren Lynn Bousman
Actors: Rebecca De Mornay, Jaime King, Patrick John Flueger, Warren Kole, Deborah Ann Woll, Briana Evigan, Shawn Ashmore, Frank Grillo

After a bank robbery gone wrong, three brothers head for home hoping their Mother (Rebecca De Mornay) can provide them with a getaway. The youngest brother Johnny (Matt O'Leary) has been shot and their back-stabbing former partner has gotten away with all the cash. But when the brothers get home they find that all their stuff is gone and their Mother is nowhere to be found: She lost the house months ago in a foreclosure. The new owners Beth and Daniel Sohapi (Jaime King and Frank Grillo) and their guests gathered for an ill-timed birthday party become the brothers' unwitting hostages. Not long after Mother arrives along with the boys' sister Lydia (Deborah Ann Woll) and it soon becomes clear that Mother will do absolutely anything to protect her children.

Despite being billed as a remake of Mother's Day(1980) and refs to "Queenie" This film is closer to Desperate Hours and quite the same premise. Rebecca De Mornay still rocks the cradle and holds her own as the Mother determined to love and protect her family. Well acted by all and the direction is Solid. Quite a bit of violence and some nasty torture which impressed. A silly ending but Horror fans should enjoy.

First off, this is a horror movie by the guy who directed 3 of the Saw movies, that alone should tell you if this is the movie for you. If you were not a fan of Saw because of it's violence or gore, this movie is not something you should watch because it's very similar to that in terms of tone. Acting wise however this one blows every Saw movie out of the water, in particular Rebecca De Mornay who plays the mother perfectly. She's a beautiful mix of genuinely kind and loving while also a healthy amount of sociopathic tendencies. It's a hard gritty horror film with a lot of over the top moments that add to it. Keep in mind this movie is not subtle, and it doesn't try and be. It's meant to be a harsh violent film, and it's proof that when Darren Lynn Bousman puts his mind to it he can make an amazing horror film. This isn't a classic by any means, but for what it is it's a really good horror film and that is more than enough.

Inconsistent, over the top and quite stupid at times. Survival flick with quite a bunch of hopeless victims. To watch once you switched your brain off

This gory, violent hostage thriller rises slightly above mediocrity thanks to a nicely paced script full of (sometimes) unexpected twists and a strong performance from Rebecca De Mornay as the titular mother that is better than the film probably deserves. The killers must be fans of the SAW movies, because they like to set up tests of psychological torture that aim to prove all human beings are irredeemably selfish jerks. They are largely proven right. The film has little to do with the 1980 Troma film of the same name, despite being credited as a remake.

This was one of the most "bloody" some what gruesome movies I have seen. I would not recommend it to the faint hearted

Quite a good thriller. Got a bit far fetched at the end, but pretty good to watch.

Recommended for the blood, gore murder movie lovers. After an ordinary beginning, where I thought this will be an average movie, it actually sped up to a good suspenseful movie, thanks to good acting on behalf of the "mother" and a very good believable story line. If you're into this kind of stuff , go ahead and enjoy watching the macabre workings of this woman.

It's not much more than a collection of tried and true hostage film cliches, but somehow, Mother's Day is better than it probably has a right to be. Fans of the horror/action genre could do worse.

One of the the worst movies I've ever seen, absolute rubbish, senseless violence, should be taken off the rental list!

Violent rubbish - didn't even last 30 mins into the film. Seen it all before and not interested in seeing it again in another film.

Over violent film with well-known actors. Thin plot.

great movie. i believe it should have been called mother dearest or something considering it was un like the original though. movie also went on a bit where people escaped and then got recaptured and took to long for beth to get revenge. other then that it was very enjoyable and worth the watch and wait to get it.

OK, abit too over the top to be beliveable. but an insight into human nature and how people react differently when put under pressure.
