Beverly Hills, CA – After three decades of anticipation, cult classic Mother’s Day is finally getting released, remastered for DVD, and available for the first time on Blu-ray™, September 4th, from Anchor Bay Entertainment, the leader in horror for home entertainment.

Originally released by Troma Entertainment in 1980, the film shocked critics, but garnered a huge cult following among fans of the genre, including Hostel director Eli Rothand director of Saw II-IV, Darren Lynn Bousman, who helmed the 2012 remake starring Rebecca De Mornay.


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!


Featuring 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 (Producer of The Last Exorcism, Grindhouse and Hostel 1 & 2), fans can finally add this long-awaited cult classic to their library, and new fans can experience the terror of Mother and her bloodthirsty boys for the first time.  SRP is $19.98 for DVD, and $24.99 for Blu-ray™.

'Bout time! Thank the Gods at Anchor Bay! :D You know, it'd be great if Anchor Bay and Troma teamed up to make new releases of Troma's classics more often.
