Take a break from all the nauseatingly saccharine Mother's Day posts and treat yourself to something with a bit more bite. Celebrate the mothers of horror—from the maternal to the macabre—ranging from working mothers, stay-at-home mothers, stepmothers, mother of creatures, mother of dolls, and more.
P.S. I got to play an extra in one of the below films.
First, the Mama Bears
The mama bears are fiercely protective and have a maternal instinct that kicks into high gear during times of chaos. They are the unsung heroes, perfectly imperfect, sacrificing without resorting to martyrdom. When the going gets tough, the mama bear only gets tougher—even through (or perhaps as a result of) the breakdowns and tears.
Next, the Mamas That Scare
Some of us are all too familiar with this category. The 'Mommie Dearests' with a permanent case of the Manic Mondays. The mothers who are as cruel as they are kind. Mothers who are so haunted by their past they project it onto everything and everyone around them. These moms are bad mamma-jamas... just as mean as they can be.
