Rebecca De Mornay Knows Best in ‘Mother’s Day’ Trailer

Rebecca De Mornay in Mother's Day
Anchor Bay Entertainment

We’ve seen a number of films that have stuck on the shelf hit theaters in the last couple months. Kenneth Lonegran’s ‘Margaret’ was filmed in 2005, and came out six years after the fact, Eddie Murphy‘s ‘A Thousand Words’ hits theaters three weeks ago after being shot in 2008. Which makes ‘Mother’s Day‘ turn in the closet seem altogether brief. It first screened in December of 2009. Now there’s a trailer.


While the other films mentioned had real theatrical runs, where this Anchor Bay release is coming out May 4 in a limited number of theaters, with a DVD, Blu-ray and VOD release four days later on May 8. The film played a number of festivals, but it didn’t attract enough attention for a big studio to pick up. That said, the VOD model can work for films like this. One wonders if this had been a found footage project if it would have found a wide release.

The film is directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, who did three ‘Saw’ sequels and ‘Repo: The Genetic Opera.’ It features Jaime King, Shawn Ashmore and Briana Evigan. The film is a remake of a 1980 Troma film that was written and directed by Charles Kaufman, who’s the brother of the studio’s frontman Lloyd Kaufman. It’s also one of the best films Troma ever released.

Check out the trailer for ‘Mother’s Day’ below.
