MEDIA ALERT: Chicago Theatrical Release of Anchor Bay Films' 'Mother's Day'

Mother's Day Chicago Theatrical Engagement

Tired of the same boring ways to celebrate Mom on her special Day? Brunch? Been there, done that. Candy? Ho-hum. Fancy dinner? Yawn. Growing up, Mom was the ultimate. So why not treat her to the "ultimate Mother" with the May 4th release of Mother's Day, opening in select exclusive engagements including the Riverview Theater.

Mother's Day boasts an all-star cast including Rebecca De Mornay (The Hand That Rocks The Cradle, Wedding Crashers), Jaime King (Red Tails, My Bloody Valentine, Sin City), Briana Evigan (S. Darko, Step Up 2: The Streets), Patrick John Flueger (Footloose, Brothers), Deborah Ann Woll (HBO's "True Blood"), Lyriq Bent (Saw II-IV, Skinwalkers), Frank Grillo (The Grey, Minority Report) and Shawn Ashmore (the X-Men films, Frozen).

Directed by Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, III and IV) with screen story and screenplay by Scott Milam based on the original Mother's Day written by Charles Kaufman and Warren Leight, Mother's Day is a graphic remake of the Troma horror classic. After a bank robbery gone wrong, three brothers go home to hideout...only to discover that their Mother (De Mornay) lost their house in a foreclosure. The new owners and their party guests become the depraved brothers' unwitting hostages. Their sadistic Mother soon arrives and brilliantly takes control of the situation, ratcheting up the terror. As the hostages struggle desperately to survive the harrowing torture, they realize that there is nothing a Mother won't do to protect her children.

Official synopsis, Director's Q&A, the theatrical trailer and hi-res photos are available at Running time: 112 minutes. Rated: R
