Serial Mom (1994) REVIEW

I saw Serial Mom for the first time as a fairly young kid, and thought it was pretty good. I’ve just seen it for the first time as an adult, and it turns out that I’d forgotten just how good this film really is! It’s certainly not to everyone’s taste, and if you can’t handle high camp, you definitely don’t want to see this; but if you like your films wild and wicked, Serial Mom is a treat indeed! The film follows a slasher plot line, but it’s clear that director John Waters didn’t want to merely make a slash flick. The film is a parody of life as a housewife, the media and modern society in general; with a heavy dosage of sick humour and a very unique mean streak running throughout. Serial Mom is the sort of film that puts a smile on your face, and it follows the story of a not quite so normal American mother. While her fellow housewives are cooking dinner and cleaning the house, Beverly R. Sutphin is out dispatching people that have got on hers and her family’s nerves in a variety of nasty, yet hilarious, ways. Her kids think it’s cool, and her husband is duly worried…Kathleen Turner takes the lead role, and does an excellent job of performing in a serious, yet jokey way; which does the film no end of favours on the parody front. She looks the part, acts the part…and really, I cant think of a better middle-aged actress to take the lead in this film. The support cast, which includes Matthew Lillard and Ricki Lake, is good; but it’s the director that’s the real star of the show. John Waters has made a name for himself by creating odd and twisted films, and although I haven’t seen a great deal of them; Serial Mom is his best as far as I’m concerned. It’s one of those films that constantly make you laugh (providing you’ve got a sick sense of humour), while poking fun at society and offending all the right people all at once! I love originality in movies, and this really is one unique film. The nineties saw the release of lots of obscure social commentaries that were lost under films like Schindler’s List and Fight Club, and Serial Mom, along with Francois Ozon’s ‘Sitcom’, is one of the best ‘under the radar’ films of the decade. It’s not a film that everyone will like, but everyone should see it just in case!

Serial Mom (1994) PLOT STORY

A picture perfect middle class family is shocked when they find out that one of their neighbors is receiving obscene phone calls. The mom takes slights against her family very personally, and it turns out she is indeed the one harassing the neighbor. As other slights befall her beloved family, the body count begins to increase, and the police get closer to the truth, threatening the family’s picture perfect world.

The Sutphins – dentist father Eugene, housewife mother Beverly, and late teen children, boy-crazy and flea market aficionado Misty, and horror movie fan Chip – are a stereotypical suburban family living in Baltimore. Beverly in particular is seen as being “perfect” in her quest to be just like the television mothers of the late 1950s. In that perfection, Beverly does and will not tolerate anything against her sensibilities, especially if it affects her or her family, and will take whatever measure to ensure people adhere to that sensibility… or else. Slowly, evidence mounts that Beverly is the perpetrator of obscene telephone calls to neighbor Dottie Hinkle, and the murders of several people in their neighborhood who have crossed their family in some form or another. Beverly laughs off such suggestions, but even her family members end up believing she is guilty of all the murders, with possibly more to come. Those accusations end up being not an issue to most in the Sutphin family, who use their fifteen minutes of fame to their advantage. Even Beverly believes that she can clear herself of all charges despite the overwhelming evidence against her.

A sweet mother takes a little too much at heart for the defense of her family.
