Bloody Disgusting’s Roxanne Benjamin was on hand at this past week’s Fantastic Fest where a very special screening of Darren Lynn Bousman’s Mother’s Day took place. Her thoughts: “There are a number of cringe-worthy torture and fight scenes that (unlike some of the torture themes that’ve grown so tiresome) actually serve a purpose within the storyline. It’s these life-and-death action scenes that stay with the character in the moment and that ultimately make the film worth a view.” Click the title for the full review. In a side note, Mother’s Day is getting such a variety of reviews that Bousman commented on the matter over at his official blog. Watch for release plans soon as the film was recently acquired for distribution.
