Mother’s Day
1980, Dir. Charles Kaufman
With Nancy Hendrickson, Deborah Luce, and Tiana Pierce

Troma Entertainment is one of the most famous, and arguably most original, American independent film companies of all time, producing cult classics like Toxic Avenger, Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D., and Surf Nazis Must Die. In the mid 1980s, Troma embraced the emerging format and became a pioneer in the VHS market.

Written, produced and directed on a budget of only $115,000 by Charles Kaufman, the brother of Lloyd Kaufman, co-founder of Troma Entertainment INC, horror film Mother’s Day follows three girlfriends as they reunite for their annual camping trip. The young friends’ vacation turns into their worst nightmare when they are kidnapped by two demented punk/hillbilly brothers. Led by their insane mother, the brothers drag the young women through deranged scenarios conceived by the sadistic matriarch.

Showcasing new possibilities for breakthrough genre filmmaking, Mother’s Day was an early example of a filmmaker’s creation taking on a new life within the video market. The opportunities introduced by video distribution went on to influence generations of filmmakers.

Don’t miss this most epic analog event because in real life there is no rewind button!
