Darren Lynn Bousman‘s brutally violent re-imagining of a Troma film of the same name, Mother’s Day, was originally scheduled for released on April 1. Suffice to say, that won’t be happening as we’ve yet to see an official trailer, poster, or anything for the horror film starring Rebecca De Mornay, Jaime King and Shawn Ashmore. It played at Fantastic Fest 2010, was picked up for distribution by a small company called Gigapix Studios (which promised Bousman over 1,000 theaters for its release) and then vanished off the face of the earth. Bousman has since went on to shoot and sell a whole other movie, 11-11-11, while Mother’s Day is gearing up for release, both theatrically and on DVD, in other markets. But what about North America? Bousman spoke exclusively to Shock Till You Drop about the situation you can read his quotes below. Read More »

Whether or not you’ve read American Psycho, The Rules of Attraction or Less Than Zero, the name Bret Easton Ellis conjures up a pretty specific set of themes: some combination of twisted social commentary, biting humor and gratuitous violence. And though Ellis has adapted one of own his books to a screenplay, he’s just written his first adaptation of a book that’s not his. That book is Michael Hornburg’s novel Downers Grove which is about a suburban high school where one senior dies a horrible death at the end of each year. Nelson McCormick, best known for the recent remakes of Prom Night and The Stepfather, is attached to direct and it’s set to star Hayden Panettiere (Heroes, Scre4m) and Nikki Reed (Thirteen, Twilight) in addition to Rebecca De Mornay. The whole package is currently being shopped at the America Film Market. Read more after the jump. Read More »
Darren Lynn Bousman‘s Mother’s Day premiered in the midnight movie slot at Fantastic Fest.
Bousman is a music video turned feature director who broke into the movie business on the Saw series sequels, and most recently helmed the low budget adaptation of the musical Repo! The Genetic Opera (which was dumped at the box office by Lionsgate and has since developed a cult following on DVD and through the midnight film circuit). A lot of non-horror critics like to bash Bousman, some people even call him a hack. I’ve actually stood up for the filmmaker in a few arguments with fellow film geeks.

Hey, Rob Reiner has a new movie coming out. Flipped is a very sweet-looking ode to the ’50s and early ’60s and the hormone flood of emerging adulthood. That is, it’s about a boy who thinks he hates a girl until he realizes that she might be the best thing ever. Check out a trailer after the break. Read More »
