There's always time for horror. Especially on Mother's Day! Even if your mom pretends or acts like she doesn't really care for horror, you know that she's only kidding. So kick back and listen as we discuss two of the most famous horror mothers in cinema history, and then go watch the movies with your mom!

Marion Crane (Janet Leigh) finds herself in a difficult position, after making an impulsive, even criminal decision. After stopping at a roadside motel, and a mostly pleasant conversation with the proprietor, Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins), we can only hope that she'll take steps to set things right. After a nice shower, of course. And if she can avoid a run-in with Norman's mother. It's Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (1960)!

And then from there, a young woman experiencing her first pregnancy, finds herself unusually isolated and alone in a New York City apartment building. While she receives guidance from her husband, doctor, and the odd elderly couple who live next door, a series of events leaves her uncertain as to which of them she can actually trust, in Roman Polanski's paranoid classic, Rosemary's Baby (1968).
