The international sales trailer which has been used at last November’s AFM for the upcoming psychological horror-thriller. The film is directed by Darren Lynn Bousman and produced by Brett Ratner, features two mothers (Rebecca De Mornay and Jaime King) who give the holiday terrifying new meaning as they battle to protect what is dearest to them. It is a remake of the 1980 film of the same name and has been delayed from the previously-planned release date of 2010.
After a bank robbery gone wrong, three brothers on the run from the law head for home, only to discover that their mother lost the house in a foreclosure. The new owners and their guests, gathered for an ill-timed birthday party, become the brothers’ unwitting hostages. Their mother and sister arrive, and it soon becomes obvious that Mother will do absolutely anything to protect her children. In one terrifying evening, Mother brilliantly takes control of the situation and masterminds her sons' escape, teaching the house’s new owners and their guests a few lessons along the way. Sides will be taken, secrets revealed, and sins punished as the hostages struggle to make it through the night.
