Bloody Disgusting recently got its grubby, blood-stained hands on the sales trailer for Darren Lynn Bousman’s Mother’s Day. It’s the first footage we’ve seen of the remake of Charlie Kaufman’s 1980 slasher flick, and while it’s not an official trailer it’s more than a little scary how bad it looks.
Who the hell edited the beginning of this trailer? Hope your eyes survive intact.
As you can see, they’ve tried to update the old film with a story about how the mom’s sons come home to discover that their mother lost their home (topical!), which makes them even more mad. Rebecca De Mornay looks like she’s having fun as the crazy mom but yikes, I just don’t know about this one.
Compare this to the trailer from the original- a film that still holds up as a ton of deranged fun!
In a bit of misjudged marketing Darren Lynn Bousman’s Mother’s Day is hitting theaters on April Fool’s.
