Mother's Day (1980)

1980 Horror, Thriller

User Score: 80/100


Three female friends on a camping trip are kidnapped by a pair of brothers, who take the women back to their home and brutalize them, all for the pleasure of their demented mother.

Loving sons always do what their mothers tell them to…even if it’s to kill.  Directed by Charles Kaufman (brother of Troma President Lloyd Kaufman), the classic Mother’s Day delivers laughs and chills with liberal doses of nail-biting suspense.  When three college buddies decide to rekindle their comraderie with a camping trip, they become the unwitting prey of a very dysfunctional family.  As unforgettable as Deliverance, as terrifying as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre with a twisted statirical humor in the Kaufman vein, this Mother’s Day will leave you feeling frightened and amazed!
