The new movie “Mother!” came out in theatres on September 15th, 2017. “Mother!” is a drama, horror, mystery movie and is rated R.

“Mother!” is about a woman and her husband whose lives are changed significantly when a random family comes to live with them in their home. The husband is a famous poet, which leads to more and more fans coming to enter their house. This causes complete chaos, leaving the wife hating her husband and life.

I found this movie very confusing and random. I continued to wait for a part that was considered the climax but could never identify one. The movie didn’t seem to have a message, theme, or a reason for why the characters acted the way they did.

I honestly believed that half of the movie was a dream, and the character was going to eventually wake up. Though it was not a dream, this thought continued on entire my mind because the movie didn’t make any sense. It seemed like the writers of “Mother!” tried to think of the most random plot possible.

I wouldn’t personally class “Mother!” as a horror movie either. There were no scenes that made me feel scared or made me think that other people could get scared watching it.

“Mother!” was not a well written movie, and though the cast did a great job with what they were given, I would not recommend spending your money and time watching this film.

 

Overall Rating: F
