Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


Jamie Lee Curtis may be the quintessential final girl, but the hidden genre gem “Mother’s Boys” proves she’s also so good at playing so bad.

It was recently Mother’s Day in the States, and we celebrated with a look at 1993’s “Mother’s Boys” — a psychological thriller starring Jamie Lee Curtis.

In Mother’s Boys, the sexy but unstable wife and mother, Jude (Jamie Lee Curtis), walked out on her family three years ago. Now, just as suddenly, she is back. But her husband, Robert (Peter Gallagher), has fallen in love with Callie (Joanne Whalley-Kilmer), an assistant principal at his sons’ school. He asks Jude for a divorce. She responds by trying to turn her three boys against Callie, then by slashing herself and blaming her rival, and finally by drawing her 12-year-old, Kes (Luke Edwards), into a murderous plot.

Though the film received generally negative reviews, often accused of borrowing too much from 1987’s Fatal Attraction, it’s a treat for fans of the killer scream queen Curtis.
