"The Bad Seed grown up... chillingly good!" - Leonard Maltin

"Writer/director Max Allan Collins (Road to Perdition) has crafted a fun little tribute to The Bad Seed that succeeds despite its ultra-low budget." - Stacie Ponder, Final Girl

"What must be noted about Mommy is the amazing cast that Max Allan Collins has managed to assemble." - Richard Scheib, Moria: The Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy Film Review


Dialogue with writer/director Max Allan Collins in person.  


In 1995 mystery writer Max Allan Collins created an indie thriller that scored surprising media attention and killer reviews - an "unofficial" sequel to The Bad Seed (1956) starring that classic film's Academy Award nominated child star, Patty McCormack, grown into the menacing Mommy.  


The scary black comedy also features Jason Miller (The Exorcist), Majel Barrett (Star Trek), scream queen Brinke Stevens and legendary "Mike Hammer" creator, Mickey Spillane, with an award-winning performance by 11-year-old Rachel Lemieux.  

Happy Mother's Day!
