The Golden Briefcase - Mother's Day

On this special edition episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy count down their Top 5 Crazy Mothers of Cinema in honor of Mother's Day! The guys list off plenty of psychotic mothers from films such as Black Swan, Carrie, House of the Devil and many more! Jeremy also conducts an interview with director Darren Bousman (Saw II, III, IV, Mother's Day) regarding his Top 5 crazy film moms. Tim and Jeremy also discuss the different character types these mothers embody and the immense talent of some of these actresses. List your own favorite crazy film/TV moms below and enjoy the rest of the day with yours!

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Tuesday nights starting at 7:30PM (PST). You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records!

    Everyone had pretty good lists. But you guys forgot that crazy bitch of a mom from "Sleepaway Camp." Yeah, the one who turned her son into a crazy, serial killing tranny!!!
  • Splinteredvision
    Any chance these will come back to Zune Marketplace? The latest episodes on there are from March 2010...unless they're listed under a different name?
    • Hey man, not sure why they stopped populating at the Zune Marketplace. We will certainly look into it and see what the issue is! Any chance you can just get it through iTunes and sync to the zune somehow?
  • guest suffices
    Does Sarah Polley in Splice count? She was sorta Dren's mother and she was certainly bat shit insane
    • Excellent example! I'm pissed we didn't think of that!
  • I knew he was gonna be the next guest! Love it!!!
  • Voice of Reason
    Even Delia Deetz has a nomination to be had, although she was seemingly "normal" by the end of the film...but I am just in shock that "Norma" Bates from Psycho, the Grandmomma of crazy movie moms isn't on this list. Be she rotting away in the flesh or re-enacted, she is the matriarch of horror and the crazy mom that somewhat started it all. How was this overlooked?
    • Tim Buel
      I think we left her out for the very reason. She is a given. We wanted to to give some other examples the people may not be aware of
      • Voice of Reason
        Bah. No more obvious than "Mommy Dearest" or "Pamela Vorhees" and most of the other McMoms you've got listed. The title is " Top 5 Crazy Mothers of Cinema." Norma is (one of) the tops and most influential to cinema, genres and your title, plain and simple. Credit where credit is due in my opinion, but hey, I guess thats why its your podcast. Good topic regardless, I like the top-5 and thematic-movie-connections, I'm finally interested in listening to one of these podcasts.
        • Well I'm glad you're interested.
