You don’t dare cross Beverly Sutphin… Scream Factory has a special treat in store for John Waters fans, as they have announced a new Collector’s Edition Blu-ray of 1994’s Serial Mom that will make its North American Blu-ray debut this May, including a new conversation with Waters himself.
Press Release: If you are ill-mannered, have a poor sense of social etiquette or just plain irresponsible, then beware of the cheerfully psychotic housewife Beverly Sutphin from John Waters’ wickedly hilarious cult classic, Serial Mom.
