When Dr. Burton and the detective are talking at the Robertson residence after being informed of Albert's escape from the mental institution, the phone rings once and Albert's mother goes to retrieve it. The detective stops her and spends twelve seconds convincing her to keep him on the phone- it never rings again but she manages to pick up the receiver and Albert speaks to her on the other end.

Just remember that "horror" is not the main ingredient!
4 March 1999 | by emmSee all my reviews

The alternative title of this film would make much better sense. Through some extremely unrelated footage, it does very good at hiding the truth of our "Poor Albert" who killed "Little Annie's" mama. That way, we can slowly await the climax. Horror and gore fans, be warned! You will be disappointed by the lack of severed body parts and / or any detailed scenes of graphic violence, and just because it's titled I DISMEMBER MAMA! Don't blame me if I said this! I watched this film from an out-of-print Simitar version that might have been cut from any over-the-top gore. So what? A good little El Cheapola drive-in thriller, but try not to get too high on your expectations.
