Sound on Sight Radio #204: Mother’s Day

Yes, we know it was last week, but thanks to the rerelease on DVD of the schlocky Troma horror flick Mother’s Day, we here at Sound on Sight devised a novel way to pay tribute to our dear matriarchal holiday: the rest of the hour is devoted to the greatest movies ever made…according to our mothers. As a result, we’ll be talking about Hitchcock’s freaky 1964 psychological thriller Marnie, Terence Malick’s 1973 debut Badlands, and the Judi Dench-starring 2001 biopic of Alzheimer’s-stricken author Iris Murdoch, simply entitled Iris.

  1. It was Jacques Tati you silly goof…but who the hell knows what I’m talking about anyways.

  2. I can note that I am a mother, I listen to the show, and in fact I did listen to some episodes of Sound On Sight while I was in labor. Now I listen when I take the kid on walks.

    I feel like I’ve seen Mother’s Day a long, long time ago. But I’ll have to check it out again. But don’t you think a Mother’s Day show should really include the Its Alive trilogy? That said, I did enjoy all of the mom choices… very interesting.

    • Congrads Alyssa ! I am so happy for you. If I was on the show I may have influenced my mom to pick It’s Alive. Anyhow one day we will have to review this on Sordid Cinema!

  3. Also I can’t believe Detroit cracked that blood on the toilet seat – STD and condom joke during a Mother’s Day special.

  4. Dude you need to bring me Mother’s Day. After hearing your review I need to see it. I can’t believe Detroit compared it to Jean Cocteau? And you said it was better than Friday the 13th — BOLD STATEMENT – NICELY DONE!
