John Waters was on a bit of a strange hot streak when his outrageous humor found itself less outsidery with the releases of Hairspray and Cry-Baby. His nostalgic look backs at Baltimore allowed fans to share his films with their parents. Although there was no way Aunt Anna would get her eyes near Pink Flamingos. He topped off this period with Serial Mom, a twisted tale of a woman caught in the past wants to go back to those simple times of soft rock and Charles Manson. This is one of Kathleen Turner’s greatest roles. Now Serial Mom: Collector’s Edition will allow fans to truly appreciate all the John Waters touches in 1080p Here’s the press release from Scream Factory:
A Film by JOHN WATERS
COLLECTOR’S EDITION BLU-RAY™
Starring Kathleen Turner,
Sam Waterston and Ricki Lake
ARRIVES ON NORTH AMERICAN HOME ENTERTAINMENT SHELVES MAY 9, 2017
If you are ill-mannered, have a poor sense of social etiquette or just plain irresponsible, then beware of the cheerfully psychotic housewife Beverly Sutphin from John Waters’ wickedly hilarious cult classic, SERIAL MOM. She will stop at nothing to rid of anyone failing to live up to her moral code! Starring Kathleen Turner (Romancing the Stone) as Beverly Sutphin, Sam Waterston (Grace and Frankie) and Ricki Lake (Hairspray), writer-director and pop culture icon John Waters puts a twist on the everyday mediocrity of suburban life in this outrageous dark comedy brimming with his unique brand of perverse humor and high camp. The film also stars Mink Stole (Pink Flamingos), Patricia Hearst (A Dirty Shame), Matthew Lillard (Scream), Mary Jo Catlett (Diff’rent Strokes), Traci Lords (Cry-Baby), with special appearance by Suzanne Somers (Three’s Company). It’s a killer comedy that will take fans and audience over the edge with laughter!
