Story


In this highly-anticipated psychological horror thriller from renowned director Darren Lynn Bousman and producer Brett Ratner, two mothers (Rebecca De Mornay and Jaime King) will give the holiday terrifying new meaning as they battle to protect what is dearest to them.

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.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it's not so-bad-it's-good. It's just bad..”
by Josh Katz [Culture Mob]
“..the title and some of the basic premise come from an old Troma flick, but De Mornay's brood's gory..”
by Matt Singer [Time Out Chicago]
“..in general, any scene that doesn't involve the quietly scary, evidently psychotic Mrs. Koffin represents screen time wasted..”
by Charles Gant [Variety]
