In the web of steps to getting a movie made, making a proof of concept or teaser trailer or director’s test can be a crucial part as we all know. This isn’t what sells the movie to an audience, it’s what sells a movie to a potential foreign buyers. It needs to be a bit of a different animal.
That being said, this particular promo for Darren Lynn Bousman’s Mother’s Day remake does seem eerily close to how the movie might be sold when trailer time rolls around.
Make sure not to have any wire hangers around Rebbecca De Mornay.
It’s actually fairly generic. If not generic, the torture isn’t nearly as pronounced as the film’s concept suggests. Three brothers led by big bad momma take a friendly party hostage and make them do some funny games with each other until momma’s satisfied. Sounds promising.
But how will a buyer know they’re interested until they find out exactly how rape-y it is?
Robert Fure wasn’t a fan of the movie when he saw it at Fantastic Fest, but audiences will get to make up their own minds when the horror flick hits theaters on April 1st.
