Pretty cool shite right here!

We're proud to exclusively announce that Anchor Bay Entertainment has decided to release Charles Kaufman's 1980 horror flick MOTHER'S DAYis being remastered on DVD and will be released for the first time on  Blu-ray September 4th of this year. You can pre-order either format as early as August 8th.

Per an official presser:

Originally released by Troma Entertainment in 1980, the film shocked critics, but garnered a huge cult following among fans of the genre, including Hostel director Eli Roth, and director of Saw II-IV, Darren Lynn Bousman, who helmed the 2012 remake starring Rebecca De Mornay.

Directed by Charles Kaufman and written by Kaufman and Warren Leight, the original Mother’s Day follows three young women abducted by homicidal momma’s boys Ike and Addley, while camping. Ike and Addley are goaded by their “Mother” into violent and graphic acts of torture against the three women. While doing everything to stay alive, the three women muster the courage escape, and serve their maniacal abductors some old-fashioned justice!

Featuring an all-new HD transfer, and never-before-seen bonus features, including commentary, behind-the-scenes footage, and a newly created featurette with genre favorite Eli Roth (Producer of The Last Exorcism, Grindhouse and Hostel 1 & 2), fans can finally add this long-awaited cult classic to their library, and new fans can experience the terror of Mother and her bloodthirsty boys for the first time.

Wow, word is the original MD is Roth's favorite flick, a topic he addresses on the bonus features.  A must own then, right?! Hell yeah it is!

Again, MOTHER'S DAY hits DVD & Blu-ray for the first time September 4th.

Extra Tidbit: For those who've seen both the original and remake, which MOTHER'S DAY is better?

Can not wait to replace my bootleg copy. I love both the original and the remake and I love that they're so different. One is a fun drive-in cult exploitation classic while the new one is a dark, gritty and intense crime/horror thriller with some nice nods to the original. Personally I prefer the remake, but I still love the original for it's bizarre comedy and nostalgia. I often used to catch it on cable late at night as a kid. I'm glad that not only did the remake finally get a good US

I'm glad that not only did the remake finally get a good US release, but now as a result the original is getting the treatment the fans wanted, the one that Troma promised but never came through with.
