Rebecca De Mornay keeps this conventional horror remake alive and kicking with her fierce and terrifying performance.
March 31, 2020
I can only really recommend Mother's Day to major horror/thriller fans or anyone who loves the idea of seeing De Mornay knock a comeback role out of the park.
March 14, 2016
It's not remotely intelligent, entertaining or thought-provoking.
April 7, 2013
A rather underwhelming remake...
September 28, 2012
Mother's Day is just as forgettable as whatever day Mother's Day actually is.
August 22, 2012
Gets too distracted by the by-the-numbers story to go explore any of the ideas it actually raises.
July 6, 2012
As written by Scott Milam, the characters are a bunch of half-wits.
May 11, 2012
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.
May 4, 2012
A home-invasion film like Mother's Day is elongated coitus interruptus.
May 3, 2012
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.
May 3, 2012
The ready crackle of [De Mornay's] studiously demonic performance brings welcome distraction from this otherwise crude litany of torture and wretched death.
May 3, 2012
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.
May 2, 2012
Notable for a chilling lead performance from Rebecca De Mornay and not much else.
May 1, 2012
Mother's Day is distinguished, at least, by De Mornay's porcelain-smile lampoon of castigating matriarchy.

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.
July 12, 2011
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.
June 13, 2011
Rebecca De Mornay proves she's still got the superior chill factor to scare the living daylights out of you.
June 13, 2011
Better than it has any right to be.
June 12, 2011
There are moments of tension but it's too long, no one to like and the ending is pointlessly grim.
