Best Horror Remakes: Mother’s Day (2011)

My favorite remake would be Mother’s Day from 2011,but was released just this year on DVD and Blu-ray. It’s isn’t an actually full out remake because there are a lot of differences compared to the 80’s film,but if I had to say which is my favorite remake it would be this film. It was Rob Zombie’s Halloween for the longest time,but Mother’s Day became my number 1 when I saw it.

Basically the story is about a group of friends being held hostage in a house ,which belongs to two of the friends, after three men come back thinking that it is their home until their Mother (Rebecca De Morney) and sister arrive explaining that they lost the house. Mother and her children decide to keep the hostages until the money turns up that belongs to Mother so that Mother and her children can escape.

The film was directed by Darren Lynn Bousman who is known for directed some Saws sequels and Repo! the Genetic Opera. But this film is by far his best in my opinion and his film is ten times better than the original because it creates great tension and the performances are well acted especially from Rebecca De Morney who plays Mother. She steals the show in this film.

This is highly recommended from me!!
