Original Mother’s Day is Coming to Blu-ray


Now that Darren Lynn Bousman’s redo of Mother’s Day has hit the States, it’s time to revisit the original cult classic.

Troma’s Mother’s Day is going to hit Blu-ray for the first time courtesy of Anchor Bay Entertainment on September 4th.  Originally released by Troma Entertainment in 1980, directed by Charles Kaufman and written by Kaufman and Warren Leight, the original Mother’s Day follows three young women abducted by homicidal momma’s boys Ike and Addley, while camping.  Ike and Addley are goaded by their “Mother” into violent and graphic acts of torture against the three women. While doing everything to stay alive, the three women muster the courage escape, and serve their maniacal abductors some old-fashioned justice.

The presentation features an all-new HD transfer, and never-before-seen bonus features, including commentary, behind-the-scenes footage, and a newly created featurette with genre favorite Eli Roth.
