A new trailer for director Darren Lynn Bousman’s remake of the 1980 horror film Mother’s Day has gone online. The film stars Rebecca De Mornay as a crazytimes mother who helps her three fugitive sons take care of a few unwanted houseguests. Bousman is best known as the director behind Saw II, III and IV, but his previous directorial effort, 11-11-11, came and went with barely a whimper. Mother’s Day looks to place him back in Saw-esque territory, and it appears to be a fairly effective horror/thriller. The movie was actually filmed back in 2009 and screened at Fantastic Fest 2010, where our own Bill Graham called it a “surprisingly fun mixed bag.”

Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Jaime King, Deborah Ann Woll, Briana Evigan, Alexa Vega, Shawn Ashmore and Matt O’Leary. Mother’s Day hits theaters for a limited engagement on May 4th, with a Blu-ray/DVD release to follow on May 8th.

Here’s the synopsis outlined in Bill’s review:

We open on Addley, Johnny, and Ike Koffin as they flee from the law after a botched bank robbery has severely wounded Johnny and they are left with no other option but returning to their mother’s old home. However, they are surprised to find that the property is under new ownership after being foreclosed and bought months earlier, and they have guests; a lot of them. As they struggle to contain the situation, they resort to calling Mother (Rebecca De Mornay) to help them escape. No one is safe as lies and deadly secrets are revealed when the guests are exposed to Mother’s sadistic ways of getting exactly what she wants.
