Mommy's "Special Little Boy!"
 Mother's Day...a celebration of mothers, motherhood and maternal bonds. A day for flowers, candy, greeting cards and maybe even MURDER?! Everybody has a mom and no matter how you feel about her remember this: even Monsters have a mother!  You might have not realized this but mother's have a lot to do with horror movies. From "Psycho" (1960) to "Mother's Day" (1980) horror movies have always featured some of the most twisted, maniacal, and loving mothers ever to wield a butcher knife!
