“..unfortunately, the filmmakers push for contrivances that could have been transplanted from the plot of just about every soap opera ever made..”
by Chris Pandolfi [Yahoo! Voices]
“..they appear to be affluent, shallow, as well as blandly attractive, all in the poorly cast modern-horror-movie tradition..”
by Chuck Bowen [Slant Magazine]
“..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]
“..so creepy, so much happening under the cover or normalcy...just awesome..”
by Don Sumner [Best Horror Movies]
“..sadistic tone Bousman takes in causing onscreen harm and zeroing in on punctured flesh..”
by Robert Abele [Los Angeles Times]
“..represents a more efficient, state-of-the-art breed of splatter entertainment..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]
“..it's not so-bad-it's-good. It's just bad..”
by Josh Katz [Culture Mob]
“..in general, any scene that doesn't involve the quietly scary, evidently psychotic Mrs. Koffin represents screen time wasted..”
by Charles Gant [Variety]
“..crisply shot and surprisingly well acted, "Mother's Day" suffers from an overly long script and annoying glitches in continuity..”
by Jeannette Catsoulis [New York Times]
