Top 5 Mother’s Day Movies

Hello and Happy Mother’s Day! Okay I know I’m a couple of days early but, I was thinking…..What are some good mother related related movie? Albeit it’s Comedy, Horror, Drama or a psychological thriller, Hollywood always depict mothers with serious issues, and I mean some serious issues! So in today’s Mother’s Day related article I’ll show you five movies with some serious mommy issues.


Released earlier this year, this Guillermo Del Toro produced movie tells the tale of two young girls who surprisingly survived their stay in the wilderness with a dark, shadowy figure, to which the kids dubbed “MAMA”. Starring Jessica Chastain and Game of Thrones Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as the married couple having to deal with the backlash of rising these little girls with the looming threat of MAMA. Even though this movie is from the newer generation of Horror movies its a very effective and well acted movie.

Why MAMA is a good pick? Guillermo Del Toro help produce this well written movie, to which the plot makes since and at time’s i felt for the parents who had to deal with a threat that can do harm!

Mother’s Day Rating: 4.8/5

4. Mommie Dearest

Faye Dunaway’s portrayal as one of the most craziest bi***es in film history, heck everyone knows the classic line “NO MORE WIRE HANGERS!!!” Checkout this this video below WARNING!!!: This video is not for the faint of heart and can be quite brutal.

See? Crazy b***h! Now some people feel that this characterization of Joan Crawford isn’t very accurate. To me, this is still hard movie to sit through.

Why should this is a good pick? It’s disturbing and laughable, seriously.

Mother’s Day Rating: 5/5

3. Throw Momma From  The Train

This comedy based on Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers On a Train, follows Billy Crystal as a down and out writer who’s ex-wife stole his book and gained mainstream success. While Danny DeVito’s character is pretty much a loser, a loser who still lives with his mother and berates every chance she gets. Without giving too much away it’s a very funny cluster f**k of events with a “meh” ending.

Mother’s Day Rating: 3.8/5

2. Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho

One of Alfred Hitchcock’s most famous films, the story of Norman Bates and his beloved mother, to which he has a unhealthy connection with. This film is Hitchcock at his finest with fine camera angle and trick shot that for ever will be remembered like the famous shower scene where poor little Marion dies.

Why Psycho is a good Mother’s Day pick? Well it’s a simple story of a mother and son, and grizzly murders at the Bates Motel.

Mother’s Day Rating: 5/5

1. Carrie

Based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, this 1976 movie starring Sissy Spacek, The basic premise of Carrie is about a socially outcast teenage girl (Carrie) who is verbally and psychically abuse by her mother, who just so happens to develop psychic powers during the course of the movie. The only time Carrie’s powers kick up is when she’s angry or depressed, which fairly happens through out the movie, but the most famous scene from Carrie is the infamous High School Prom massacre.

They messed with the wrong teenage girl.
