IF YOU CAN DO THE BOUSMAN, YOU’RE BAD LIKE

The new trailer for Darren Lynn Bousman’s MOTHER’S DAY remake dropped, just in time for a “limited” theatrical run (meaning, Darren’s mom is going to project it on a sheet in the backyard for neighbors), and then a DVD/Blu release on 5/8. You right remember Darren from SAW III and IV, REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA, and SLEEPLESS IN NANTUCKET.
The flick looks slick and polished, unlike the the original classic that’s chock-full of camp and crazed rednecks. Also, word on the streets is that my favorite character, Queenie, is only mentioned briefly, and does not appear in the new version. I always felt it was the ending that made MOTHER’S DAY. Without it, the new one looks like a generic thriller – well-made, but pointless.
The lack of a legitimate release, the length of time the film’s been shelved, and Bousman’s lackluster filmography definitely give me pause.
Despite reports of a kick-ass performance by Rebecca De Mornay, I’ll probably pass on this remake.
What do you Bastards think?
