Do you think your mother or mother-in-law is bad? Chances are they do not compare to these awful movie mothers. Thank goodness they are exaggerated\u00a0characters and hopefully, no one is this bad in real life! Your mother is supposed to care for you and be kind, but these movies moms did not get that memo. Here is a list of some of the most cringe-worthy moms from older movies. Don't these movie moms make you want to call your own mother and thank her for being the best? 1. Joan Crawford in Mommie Dearest Paramount Pictures This movie was based on an autobiography, so it was based on a real person. Yikes! Mommie Dearest is about the childhood of Christina Crawford and her crazed adoptive mother Joan Crawford. Faye Dunaway played this psycho, mean mother. 2.\u00a0Pamela Voorhees in Friday, the 13th Paramount Pictures There have been many Friday, the 13th movies, but this one is where Jason's mother, Pamela Voorhees is the killer. A group of teenagers is killed while trying to re-open a summer camp and it turns out to be this killer mom. She blamed her son Jason's death on the camp counselors because they didn't pay attention to him as he drowned. 3. The Wicked Stepmother in Cinderella via GIPHY This one is a classic. There are animated Cinderellas and those with actors, but the evil stepmother always stays the same. She is obviously jealous of Cinderella and wants her out of the picture. Still, don't you just despise her in those movies? 4.\u00a0Eleanor Iselin\u00a0in The Manchurian Candidate United Artists Elanor used her kids as a pawn to overthrow the government. This seems a bit extreme! Do you remember this movie starring Angela Lansbury,\u00a0Laurence Harvey, and Frank Sinatra? Click to the NEXT page to read about even worse movie moms! 5.\u00a0Kathleen Turner in Serial Mom Polar Entertainment Corporation This movie from the 1990s was strange. Kathleen seemed to be the perfect wife and mother in a suburban neighborhood, but she killed people who annoyed her. What an overreaction! 6. Norma Bates in Psycho Paramount Pictures We couldn't make this list without including Norma Bates. She is very possessive over her son Norman and is probably the reason that Norman has split personalities and becomes a serial killer. Scary stuff! This premise has also\u00a0been made into other movies and shows. 7.\u00a0Abbey in Mother\u2019s Day Troma Entertainment This movie was all about the mother asking her sons to impress her. Unfortunately, they did it by kidnapping, raping and murdering people. This horror movie from the 1980s does not get great reviews. Did you love or hate it? 8.\u00a0Kate McCallister in Home Alone Hughes Entertainment This one is simple. How do you go on a family vacation and forget your son? Geez! What other movies would you add to this list? Can you think of any other scary movie mothers? If you enjoyed this article, please SHARE with your friends!
