Beat those January blues and join us for some matriarchal misbehaving as we watch the horrifically funny Serial Mom. We thought what better way to start 2018 than with a delightfully deviant film from the mind of John Waters.

Continuing our quest to seek out cinema's greatest antiheroines we present Beverly Sutphin, a woman who takes her motherly duties to pathological extremes. Kathleen Turner gives a barnstorming performance as the sociopathic matriarch who kills for the sake of her family and middle-class respectability.

Waters' take on the true-crime genre is not only a riotous satire of suburban domesticity but also a gleefully empowering critique on conventions of womanhood.

Also starring: Sam Waterston, Ricki Lake, Matthew Lillard and Mink Stole; with cameos from Patty Hearst, Suzanne Somers, Joan Rivers, Traci Lords and L7 as Camel Lips.
