Serial Mom | 1994 | R | - 5.7.6

A John Waters' black comedy about the perfect suburban mom, who's also a serial killer.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Several brief but obvious flashes of a pornographic movie showing nude, abnormally large breasts, and a number of skin magazines with varying degrees of female nudity. There is one very noisy and rambunctious sex scene between a married couple (they are shown under covers). There is also a very long masturbation scene (also under covers).

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - There are 7 murders, and all include gore. The murder weapons include scissors, a fireplace poker, a car, an air conditioner, a telephone receiver, falling stage lights and a leg of lamb. One victim is set on fire. All of these scenes are played for comic effect, but they are gruesome nonetheless. Also, several gross-out scenes, involving a squashed fly, disgusting table manners, and phlegm.

LANGUAGE 6 - About a dozen F-words, and an assortment of very profane insults, scatological and anatomical references.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Masturbation, drug use, voyeurism.

MESSAGE - Picture-perfect suburbs hide dark secrets.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
