Briana Evigan Talks Mother’s Day Redo


“It’s really, really sick…”

Briana Evigan’s horror resume continues to grow. On September 11, audiences will find her in the slasher remake Sorority Row. Next up, a redo of the Troma film Mother’s Day which begins shooting in less than a month in Winnipeg, Canada with Darren Lynn Bousman at the helm.

“I do not know who the mother is yet, since we’ve been so busy [that] I haven’t heard a word,” she tells us. Joining her are cast members Jaime King, Alexa Vega, Shawn Ashmore and True Blood‘s Deborah Ann Woll. “I can tell you that this movie is sick. It’s really, really sick. But what I liked about it so much is that it’s a concept that’s way too close to home. That family means more than anything and that you’d go do absolutely anything for them. That’s the way my family is. God, I just pray that nothing like this would happened because we’d take care of each other.”

Scott Milam’s script concerns a deranged family who returns to the house where they grew up and terrorize the new owners and their guests. Evigan reveals she’s one of the ones “who’s held hostage. So I get to be really bad-ass again and extremely 20 times more than in Sorority Row. I’m pretty much the tough, stonewall that everyone’s intimidated by. She’s super hot and sexy. Not slutty in any way. We’re trying to find the fine line so that we don’t get into that pedigree at all. I’m changing my hair for it and everything, changing my appearance. I’ll have a big tattoo on my back. So it’s definitely sexy and edgy and very tough and this girl does not put up with anything, so she’s ready to fight everybody and kill everybody she needs to kill.”

Mother’s Day opens in theaters in 2010.
