Happy mothers day! Mommie! (http://blog.starcostumes.com/baddest-movie-mothers.html)


5. Margaret White from Carrie – You would think that a movie with such a memorable line as, “They’re all gonna laugh at you,” would be a comedy. Well, you would be wrong… dead wrong. While most movies involving heinous acts by women involve a certain degree of “a lover scorned”, that’s not the case with Carrie. Never mind Sissy Spacek’s role of a lifetime, it’s Piper Laurie’s performance in the role of Margaret, Carrie’s mother, that is the root of all evil in this film. It would be easier to label her a religious nutcase, but she’d be a nutcase anyway. It’s her religious-based off-kilter views on sexuality and sin, however, that are the spark to Carrie’s psychokinetic powder keg. When it all explodes, whoa mama!


4. Beverly Sutphin from Serial Mom – There has always been a fondness for vigilante justice in American culture. From militias of the Old West to Batman, the idea of taking matters into your own hands and righting the wrongs of the world have a certain appeal. In Serial Mom, however, Kathleen Turner’s character, Beverly Sutphin, may take things just a little too far. On the surface, she’s your average suburbanite super mom – a regular June Cleaver. Below the surface, though, is a serial killer who would kill you for not separating your recyclables. No, really.

How Joan Crawford is not #1 on this list is beyond me. She is the only one based on a real person. Some mothers not on the list:

Alien Queen from Ailens-For obvious reasons.

Estelle Collingwood from The Last House on the Left(1972)-Not from the remake, form the original. Anyone who's seen the original knows what I mean and she's a bad mother in a good way.

Mom from Dr. Detroit-She's a syndicate leader disguised as a limo service owner.

Mdme. Defarge from A Tale of Two Cities-She spends the entire movie plotting the murder of an unsuspecting family all while helping to organize the French Revolution.

Mary Brady from Sleepwalkers-Bad enough she's some kind of vampire but incest? Really?

How can Tony Soprano's mother, Livia not be on that list? She manipulated her familly into killing people she saw as threats. Even put a hit out on her own son.

She was indeed tough, but she is like bubblegum to Marv.

I didn't even think about her. Good choice though.

I can't believe this woman didn't make the list. Here she is exercising her maternal instinct on her beloved son.

Beverly Sutphin is a good mother to her kids. She's just mortally offended by neighbors who don't live up to her standards!


Carrie's mother freaked the daylights out of me when I saw that movie, when I was about 14 or so.
