Check out a new trailer for the remake of the 1980 horror thriller Mother’s Day. The revamp will still center on a demented mother (Rebecca De Mornay) and her two sons, but will focus on them terrorizing a couple that is residing in their old home rather than the original’s theme of a group of hikers being tortured in the woods. Jaime King, Shawn Ashmore, Briana Evigan, and Deborah Ann Woll topline the cast.
Here’s the synopsis for the film:
After a bank robbery gone wrong, three brothers, on the run from the law, head for home, hoping their Mother (De Mornay) can provide them with a getaway. The youngest brother, Johnny (O’Leary), has been shot and their back-stabbing former partner has gotten away with all the cash.
But when the brothers get home, they find that all their stuff is gone and Mother is nowhere to be found. She lost the house months ago in a foreclosure. The new owners, Beth and Daniel Sohapi (King and Grillo) and their guests, gathered for an ill-timed birthday party, become the brothers’ unwitting hostages.
Not long after, Mother arrives, along with the boys’ sister Lydia (Ann Woll), and it soon becomes clear that Mother will do absolutely anything to protect her children. In one terrifying evening, she brilliantly takes control of the situation and masterminds her sons’ escape from the law. Sides will be taken, secrets revealed, and sins punished as the hostages struggle to survive.
The film is directed by veteran Saw franchise helmer Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, Saw III, and Saw IV).
The Mother’s Day is out in US cinemas on May 4th, 2012.
