John Waters' 'Serial Mom' Blu-ray Bound

Posted Mon Feb 6, 2017 at 10:00 AM PST by

The 1994 black comedy starring Kathleen Turner is getting the high-definition treatment this year.

In an early announcement to retailers, Scream Factory is working on 'Serial Mom: Collector's Edition' for Blu-ray on May 9.

Every woman wants to be wanted… just not for Murder One!

Director John Waters (Pink Flamingos, Hairspray) brings his twisted cinematic vision to the seemingly mundane world of suburbia in Serial Mom, an outrageous dark comedy starring Kathleen Turner (Body Heat, Romancing The Stone).

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.

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 die.

The release will feature a lossless soundtrack, and supplements include: NEW – An exclusive conversation with Director John Waters, actress Kathleen Turner and actress Mink Stole. (30 mins+) (We'll add that this is a must-see for fans of the film! Very fascinating to see them in the same room reminiscing.); Serial Mom: Surreal Moments – featuring interviews with Waters, Stole, Actress Patricia Hearst, actress Ricki Lake, actor Matthew Lillard, casting director Pat Moran, production designer Vincent Pirano & more!; Feature commentary with Waters and Turner; Feature commentary with Waters; The Making Of Serial Mom – original promotional featurette; The Kings Of Gore: Herschel Gordon Lewis and David Friedman featurette; and Original theatrical trailer.
