A special murderous treat this Mother’s Day weekend as Nitehawk present the cult classic MOTHER’S DAY in 35mm!

Spend a very Troma Mother’s Day with us! In the vein of similar cabin-in-the-woods with a rape/revenge narrative like Last House on the Left and I Spit on Your Grave, Charles Kaufman’s Mother’s Day shows how an innocent reunion amongst three young women turns into a bloody disaster. These lifelong friends just wanted some camping fun for the weekend but wind up battling for their lives and sanity against backwards two punkish hillbillies who will do anything to impress their sadistic granny mother…and this includes fulfilling her incessant demands for torture and deranged depravity on unsuspecting visitors into their woods! The girls don’t take this brutality without fighting back however, when they do, there’s another plot twist on the way. 

Part of Nitehawk’s May ASK ME ABOUT MY MOTHER midnite series.
