Cut exclusively for this past weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con was the first ever footage from Darren Lynn Bousman’s Mother’s Day, his modern day take on the classic Troma film from 1980 that stars Rebecca De Mornay (as “Mother”), Jaime King, Deborah Ann Woll, Briana Evigan, Alexa Vega, Shawn Ashmore, Matt O’Leary, and Lyriq Bent. Bloody Disgusting was on hand to see the clip that ended with a brief montage of the violence we’ll see in theaters come 2011. You’ll find a full description of what you missed inside. Watch for a release announcement in the coming months.
In Mother’s Day, three brothers are on the run from the law and head for home, only to discover that their mother lost the house in a foreclosure. Mother (played by Rebecca De Mornay) ingeniously orchestrates her sons’ escape, teaching the house’s new owners and their guests a few lessons along the way.
The Comic-Con scene opens with Mother walking into a room where three of the stars are tied up to a pole with plastic wrap. She begins to taunt the male eerily as she gnashes her teeth together, “It’s time for show and tell; I’m gonna show and you ARE gonna tell.”
Mother puts photos of one of the victim’s little boy in front of him. She taunts him with tears of her own welling up, also reminding him of how his son died (apparently running into a street). “Future snuffed out like a candle, and all because of you,” she jabs.
She lights the photo on fire: “If only you paid more attention,” she pushes, as she demands to know where her money is.
He insists he knows of no money, which results in a little “hair burning” and a whole lot of screaming.
It was a pretty intense scene that features a really chilling score. For Darren Lynn Bousman, this is shot and edited very different than the Saw films, but still utilizes a lot of hand-held action.
After the clip, we’re treated to a violent montage of action including stabbings, gunshots, and plenty of blood.
“You don’t know how lucky you are, running around in the middle of the night…be grateful Queeny didn’t get you,” Mother concludes.
