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.

  • Quite gripping and holds one's attention throughout.

  • 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.

  • Terrible. Didn't bother watching it all.

  • Loved this flick. Very entertaining.

  • 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.
