Surprisingly Good Remake
12 September 2013 | by (Carnival of Souls-ville) – See all my reviews

I have a lot of respect for the 1980 version of Mother's Day, but I don't think it's a very good movie. I find it to be silly when it's supposed to be brutal, and brutal when it wants to be satirical. Still, I can't deny it has a certain charm and really tries to have a sense of fun about it (and sometimes even succeeds). The remake is only tangentially connected to the original, but it's a much better movie even if it loses its funny bone.

This time around, the psycho hillbillies invade the tranquil (or is it?) lives of young, successful suburbanites instead of having city folk end up on the loonies' home territory. Ike, Addley, and Mother are joined by little brother Johnny and sister Lydia; the two additions to the family don't make much sense until the end. Anyway, the boys are on the run after a botched bank robbery in which Johnny was shot. They head to their childhood home since they don't know Mother lost the house and it has new owners. The new owners and their friends are gathered around for a birthday party when the boys arrive, but it's certainly no party once Mother and Lydia arrive.

What follows is pretty standard in most home invasion and "normal people trapped in a nightmare" flicks: secrets and lies and selfish behavior blur the line between the good guys and the bad guys, there's some decent gore, more than a few intense moments, and a good performance by Rebecca De Mornay as mother. There are a few clever nods to the original, and once in a while the remake has as much of a sense of bad taste fun as its predecessor. Don't go looking for much silliness though - this one is straight horror. Another thing the two movies share is a terrible "shock" ending, although the remake's is better than the original's.

While watching Mother's Day 2010, I had a realization: The Devil's Rejects (which this movie feels a lot like) was a less cartoony Mother's Day 1980, and Mother's Day 2010 is a less cartoony Devil's Rejects. Even that may not sound like praise, it is. I found Mother's Day 2010 to be one heck of a ride, and I recommend at least one viewing.
