This Friday, JUNE 15th, 2012, starting at 7:00 pm EST (but I’d suggest getting there around 6:30pm) at the MUSEUM OF ARTS AND DESIGN for a measly $10, the original MOTHER’S DAY, directed by Charles Kaufman will be playing on the big screen. And, as an added bonus, there will be a special introduction and post screening Q&A with LLOYD KAUFMAN, founder of Troma Entertainment, and Josh Schafer, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief, Lunchmeat VHS Magazine.
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.
BE THERE OR BE SQUARE! I’ll be attending, boils ‘n ghouls, representing Backwoods Horror. See ya there!
