Every woman wants to be wanted... just not for Murder One! Director John Waters brings his twisted cinematic vision to the seemingly mundane world of suburbia in Serial Mom, an outrageous dark comedy starring Kathleen Turner.
Beverly (Turner) is the perfect happy homemaker. Along with her doting husband Eugene (Sam Waterston) and two children, Misty (Ricki Lake) and Chip (Matthew Lillard), she lives a life straight out of Good Housekeeping. But this nuclear family just might explode when Beverly's fascination with serial killers collides with her ever-so-proper code of ethics ? transforming her from middle class mom to mass murderer! Soon, the bodies begin to pile up... and suburbia faces a horror even worse than wearing white after Labor Day.
Reasons to Buy
- Featuring appearances by Mink Stole, Suzanne Somers, Traci Lords and Patty Hearst, Serial Mom is a bloody hilarious tale that's as American as motherhood, the flag and apple pie.
- Before Hairspray became an acclaimed Broadway musical aimed at the masses, John Waters made his most accessible movie with this film - and it's still subversive as hell and loaded with filthy, "bas taste" hallmarks.
- Kathleen Turner makes for one of John Waters best collaborators. She's hilarious and brilliant in this movie. This brand-new Blu-ray features a full audio commentary with the two of them. It's bound to be dynamite.
