Darren Lynn Bousman, best known as the director of Saw II, Saw III, and (you guessed it) Saw IV, is the man behind the remake of the 1980 horror film Mother’s Day. Rebecca De Mornay stars as the mother who helps her three fugitive sons take care of a few unwanted houseguests. Bill caught Mother’s Day at Fantastic Fest and thought the result was “a surprisingly fun mixed bag.”
Jaime King, Deborah Ann Woll, Briana Evigan, Alexa Vega, Shawn Ashmore, and Matt O’Leary star alongside De Mornay in the April 1 release. Bloody Disgusting found what they refer to as a “German sales promo,” but I wouldn’t judge if you’d like to call it a trailer. We’ll post the official trailer if/when becomes available, but until then, this sales trailer provides plenty of insight into the look and plot of the film. Watch it after the break.
Via Bloody Disgusting:
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.
