I really do love this movie. It has all the blood, sex and insanity that a good 80's horror film needs. The two brothers in this film are just great charecters. In my opinion, they did their roles very well, and the depiction of the insane family values is just some great stuff. You have an old mother who could barely walk telling her sons to make a game out of rape. Where else do you get a story like that except from slasher films? I will always love this movie. Very creative film. The only reason these films are bashed is do to their budget and poor acting. What do you expect from a <more>
film like this. It's not about the acting or poor effects, its all about having a fun time and getting a kick out of the film. Don't expect Citizen Kane for crying out loud.
Mothers day was cutting edge for it's day. I saw it first in the theater when I was in grade 6 and never forgot it. I watch the movie about once every 6 months and find something new to like about it every time. Politically incorrect for todays standards but that only increases my love of the film. Original plot with sick developments and a fantastic retribution ending. Macabre to say the least but in all honesty, with the budget they had for that picture they worked miracles. I would be extreamley proud to have worked on that production. I rank it only one step below halloween as a <more>
horror film. Obviously a once in a life time only achievement unfortunately though for the Kauffman's. I with they would have re-made movie magic but they stooped to low points with their following films. That would explain why Chuck now runs a restaurant and no longer directs pictures.
A horror comedy that pulled it off.Three college chums, all ladies, head to the woods for a reunion and step into a low-budget, female version of 'Deliverance.' A young Fred Coffin and 'Billy Ray McQuade' he was one of Dudley Smith's sycophants in L.A. Confidential too play a couple of backwoods cretins that torture, humiliate, and kill for their mama.The title was nothing more than an attempt to cash in on all the holiday based slasher flicks that were all the rage at the time.Did anyone notice the subversiveness? The anti-consumerism message that sneaked in there years <more>
before the late great Bill Hicks was doing it.This movie won't go away. That's a good thing. It deserves to be as famous as Friday the 13th or Nightmare on Elm Street. If you find it, check it out.
I was first shown this movie about a year ago by a friend of mine, and I immediately bought the DVD although difficult to find . I love this movie for so many reasons. The acting and script are superb for such a low-budget movie. The violence, gore and humor sweeten the overall Mother's Day experience, and if you're offended by any of the scenes, then you probably shouldn't be watching movies, let alone horror movies. It's not real! My personal favorites are Ike "I'll go get the Kodak" I have a weird crush and the pink plastic breast pillow. I'd kill to <more>

This is a terrific little horror gem and a family film in every sense of the phrase. Not only does this film concern a sick and depraved family of back-woods murderers but the film itself is made by the Kaufman family. Charles Kaufman is director, writer, and producer he also has a brief cameo as a cocaine snorter in the beginning of the film . There is also a cameo appearance in the film by Stanley Kaufman. The film would later be distributed by Troma, a company own and ran by the infamous Lloyd Kaufman Lloyd would also serve as the film's assistant producer . Even Susan Kaufman was <more>
involved as the Production Designer. All of this serves the film well because Mother's Day is a different kind of horror flick. Yes there is a murder in the opening sequence, but after that, the film takes it's time letting you get to know the three main characters and their relationship with one another. This makes the horrific events that happen to them later in the film that much more shocking and horrifying. The acting is surprisingly good for a B-grade horror flick...especially Beatrice Pons aka Rose Ross who plays "Mother". Highly recommended viewing for horror fans.
Superb performances by Holden McGuire and Billy Ray McQuade as dimwit brothers Ike and Addley make this film a must for Horror/Comedy fans collections. The "Training Sequence" will leave viewers laughing for days. There is plenty of extremely graphic gore with above avg. special effects.Although I personally found this film quite enjoyable many people will not, due to the extreme graphic content. I have screened this film at quite a few parties and it upset more than a few viewers. But for me the more shocking and twisted the better! Do yourself a favor and rent this cinematic gem <more>
Should be praised as a work of B 80's Horror genius. (by Tierneyweiser)
This was definitely ones of the finest horror exploration films to come out of the early 80's. It was made with a budget of about 150,000 and went on to influence many a horror film after. I had waited around 2 years to get my hands on this movie and am very excited i can now put it in my horror collection. The theme of the movie is extremely dark from the beginning. There's a lot of very dark humor through-out that you cant help chuckle at at least once. I think all the actors did a terrific job. The two hillbilly pervert rapist ex-Semper Fi sons play there parts extremely well. The <more>
mother is just crazy and creepy to watch but you cant help laugh at some of the dialogue they gave that women. All three of the girls do an excellent job showing sheer terror and are believable when they decide to fight back against the mother and her sons at the end. All and all definity worth a watch to any true fan of the horror and a great addition to your horror collection.
I've been watching this movie regularly ever since I was a horny, frustrated and slightly repressed teenager in the 80s. I first heard about it in Fangoria magazine and it was notable mainly for having been shot across the way from Camp Crystal Lake aka Camp Blood . Oddly enough, I've met and made a pal in Adrienne King, even watched Friday the 13th with her in a theater not long ago, but that's another story.This film is the heartwarming or heart-burning story of a sick old lady who lives in the woods and has raised two boys to be sadistic killers, and of the three unfortunate <more>
women who are found by them. The women, who bear an uncanny resemblance to Stella Stevens, Sally Field and Mary McDonnell and there's a Lady Gaga lookalike in the first scene , are one-time college friends celebrating their ritualistic getaway weekend and mistakenly choose a forbidden forest or so says the demented local shopkeeper for their retreat. After about a half hour of setup in which we are treated to a scene of a disco party that would be later copied in "Boogie Nights," the introduction of a greasy, worthless boyfriend, a hateful mother, some weird east-coast characters and a flashback wherein a boasting macho man is humilated by being rendered naked in a baseball field to the tune of "I Think We're Alone Now," our three friends, aka "The Rat Pack," are captured by Ike and Addely, the creepy, animalistic sons of our woodland "mother," to ends various, sundry and violent.There's nothing particularly noteworthy in this scenario; it's a story that has been told often and the film might easily have been just another slasher, or "sadistic men torture women for voyeuristic filmgoers pathetic kicks" picture, but this one is definitely not cut from the same cloth as its 1980s counterparts.First there is the proliferation of iconic media imagery...the house of "mother" and her two degenerate kids is littered with pop culture trash including a Star Trek poster and a Big Bird alarm clock that, in one odd scene, wakes our hideous heros from slumber in their cartoon-sheeted bunk beds. Second, the acting is generally pretty good, if on the campy side. Mother and the copper-haired slob Ike who bears a resemblance to Tim Curry from Rocky Horror, and who apparently changed his name to be in this film are particularly memorable, as are the two surviving girls. The film is nasty, bloody and rough but never forgets movies, even disgusting movies like this one, are meant to be entertaining, and so ladles on the camp at weird moments, making it a dark comedy at times; moments before, and after, a disturbing, unpleasant rape scene that is nowhere near as graphic as what you see in films nowadays, at the least there are scenes where you actually find yourself oddly compelled by the charisma of the sick monsters causing all the mayhem. There's the on-going "punk sucks/disco's stupid" argument between the dopey brothers. There's also a weird "mythos" underneath the plot of the film concerning an un-seen malevolence, a bizarre, feral relative named "Queenie" who is spoken of in hushed tones, creating a mesmerizing spook factor to the precedings.This is a well-made film despite its low-budget trappings; it is well-beyond the low bar set but Lloyd Kaufman and Troma despite being directed by Kaufman's brother ...the scenes of tension are palpable and at some points unendurable a scene with a rope cutting into a woman's hands is well-nigh impossible to watch . While the violence is sometimes presented as cartoonish, at other times you are made to care for the victims and their situation, particularly when the surviving women mourn their friend who doesn't survive.Most noteworthy for me is that for once the female victims, while still technically on-screen for the purpose of being ogled for their beauty and nudity , fight back. The women that survive theoretically--the film has an unfortunate surprise ending that cheapens what might have been a sincere victory make it because they are, in their own words, strong. They defy their attackers, and they spoiler defeat them, in ways that feel justified and satisfying for once. Yet the film is also mature enough to point out that even this victory is layered with the inherent abomination of murder, even if it's in retribution, something you don't often find in modern torture porn. Or modern films, period.I have to hand it to this one...it's rough, raw, dumb, dirty, cartoonish and amateurish, but weirdly entertaining...and much smarter than one would suspect it to be note things like the motif of the "fake knife in the back" . After 40 years it still has a sick, black heart beating, and there's merit in that. Check it out if you like nasty, but entertaining, old slasher movies.
An appreciable skewering of maternal love. (by Hey_Sweden)
This memorably wild movie is a good little combination of horror and exploitation, focusing on three old college girl friends who go on a camping trip and end up at the mercy of a demented old crone and her two sons / henchmen, who put the girls through some real hell, acting out some cruel and elaborate fantasies. All the while, the crone encourages the two sons, who are just as devoted to mom as they are mostly lacking in the brains department.It's easy to take this one at face value and see a rollicking revenge saga with a general air of depravity, some brilliant gags Drano & <more>
electric carving knife, anyone? , and a priceless & creepy ending. But director / co-writer Charles Kaufman brother of Troma boss Lloyd Kaufman and co-writer Warren Leight have got more on their mind than just titillation, as the amusing and interesting touches and moments they add throughout definitely add to the experience. Just for one example, what this nasty family truly takes exception to is being called "backwoods", when they consider themselves properly "city-fied", possessing what they see as all of the amenities required for comfortable living by city folk.This was a true family affair for the Kaufman family, as Lloyd takes an associate producer credit, sister Susan Kaufman was production designer, and father Stanley Kaufman appears on screen as the old man at the pool party. Susan and the art department really need to take a bow here what with the look they give the antagonists' house.And what wonderful antagonists these people are; all three performers Frederick Coffin as Ike, Michael McCleery as Addley, and Beatrice Pons as the mother, acting under pseudonyms give this material everything they've got. And the three ladies playing the victims Nancy Hendrickson as Abbey, Deborah Luce as Jackie, and Tiana Pierce as Trina are quite likable and sympathetic, and the first half hour, which largely is devoted to character as the girls get introduced, is both funny and sweet. Of course, this does come after a hilarious opening bit where the mother & sons turn the tables on two lowlifes.The gore isn't as impressive as other elements in the movie, but in its way it does create some chuckles, such as the way the camera lingers too long on an obviously fake head.This is entertaining stuff; at the least, it's certainly not boring, and genre fans are sure to consider it a hoot. The climactic action makes it all worthwhile, and one has to like any movie where instead of fades to black, we get fades to yellow!Eight out of 10.
