Now in UK cinemas everywhere from Optimum Releasing is Darren Lynn Bousman’s Mother’s Day, which is yet to find a release here in the States. While we brought you this dark clip last week, inside you can see the lighter side of the thriller as star Briana Evigan dances her way into your hearts (she has experience with the art of seduction having starred in Step Up).
From the director of Saw II-IV, Repo! The Genetic Opera and the forthcoming 11-11-11, the film follows three brothers on the run from the law head for home, only to discover that their mother lost the house in a foreclosure. Mother (Rebecca De Mornay) ingeniously orchestrates her sons’ escape, teaching the house’s new owners and their guests a few lessons along the way. Jaime King (My Bloody Valentine 3D), Deborah Ann Woll (“True Blood”), Briana Evigan (Sorority Row, Burning Bright), Alexa Vega (Repo!) and Shawn Ashmore (Frozen, The Ruins) also star.
“ After a bank robbery gone wrong, three brothers head for home, hoping their Mother (Rebecca De Mornay) can provide them with a getaway. The youngest brother, Johnny (Matt O’Leary), has been shot and their back-stabbing former partner has gotten away with all the cash.
But when the brothers get home, they find that all their stuff is gone and Mother is nowhere to be found: she lost the house months ago in a foreclosure. The new owners, Beth and Daniel Sohapi (Jaime King and Frank Grillo) and their guests, gathered for an ill-timed birthday party, become the brothers’ unwitting hostages.
Not long after, Mother arrives, along with the boys’ sister Lydia (Deborah Ann Woll), and it soon becomes clear that Mother will do absolutely anything to protect her children. In one terrifying evening, she brilliantly takes control of the situation and masterminds her sons’ escape from the law.
Sides will be taken, secrets revealed, and sins punished as the hostages struggle to make it through the night alive.”
