A rather underwhelming remake...
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Mother's Day is just as forgettable as whatever day Mother's Day actually is.
| Original Score: 1/5
Gets too distracted by the by-the-numbers story to go explore any of the ideas it actually raises.
| Original Score: 5/10
As written by Scott Milam, the characters are a bunch of half-wits.
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.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
A home-invasion film like Mother's Day is elongated coitus interruptus.
| Original Score: 0/4
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.
| Original Score: 2/5
The ready crackle of [De Mornay's] studiously demonic performance brings welcome distraction from this otherwise crude litany of torture and wretched death.
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.
| Original Score: 3/10
Notable for a chilling lead performance from Rebecca De Mornay and not much else.
| Original Score: 2/4
Mother's Day is distinguished, at least, by De Mornay's porcelain-smile lampoon of castigating matriarchy.

| Original Score: 2.5/5
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.
| Original Score: C
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.
| Original Score: 53/100
Rebecca De Mornay proves she's still got the superior chill factor to scare the living daylights out of you.
| Original Score: 3/5
Better than it has any right to be.
There are moments of tension but it's too long, no one to like and the ending is pointlessly grim.
It is sad to see De Mornay in something so - how should one put it? - cheesy.
Undistinguished apart from Rebecca De Mornay's performance as an unhinged mama.
An often mind-numbing exploration of what it takes to be violent towards your fellow human beings.
