From the maker of Saw II, III and IV, Mother's Day is a graphic remake of the Troma horror classic, Mother's Day. After a bank robbery gone wrong, three brothers go home to hideout...only to discover that their Mother (Rebecca De Mornay) lost their house in a foreclosure. The new owners and their party guests become the depraved brothers' unwitting hostages. Their sadistic Mother soon arrives and brilliantly takes control of the situation, ratcheting up the terror. As the hostages struggle

Stuffed with secrets and characters who can't wait to betray one another, the film offers no one to root for except Mother, whose perverted family values at least remain consistent.
The ready crackle of [De Mornay's] studiously demonic performance brings welcome distraction from this otherwise crude litany of torture and wretched death.
Notable for a chilling lead performance from Rebecca De Mornay and not much else.
Mother's Day is distinguished, at least, by De Mornay's porcelain-smile lampoon of castigating matriarchy.
Undistinguished apart from Rebecca De Mornay's performance as an unhinged mama.
The film is a mindless mess that piles on mistake after mistake in a hurry. The characters are as dumb as they come and the direction is simple and lacking.
Mother's Day is just as forgettable as whatever day Mother's Day actually is.
Gets too distracted by the by-the-numbers story to go explore any of the ideas it actually raises.
Reactions will be split down the middle, depending on the viewer's endurance for tough material, but no one can say the filmmaker didn't achieve what he set out to.
A sloppy, ugly, illogical story mixed with graphic torture, attempted rape and grisly violence. Mother's Day is a film only a mother could love.
The production overstuffs the script, making one wish not for the hostages to gradually squirm their way to freedom, but for Mother to hurry up and just kill everyone.
By the film's climax, it's laid waste to the majority of its cast, which will repulse some viewers, but stand as something of an attraction to others.
Rebecca De Mornay proves she's still got the superior chill factor to scare the living daylights out of you.
There are moments of tension but it's too long, no one to like and the ending is pointlessly grim.
- Johnny Koffin: Ahhhh-ly olly oxen free, ya stupid bitch!
- Mother: You see, rules are what make order out of chaos.
- Beth Sohapi: You left the door unlocked?
