Mother’s Day is celebrated all over the world because mothers are responsible for so much of who we are as people. Our upbringing – good, bad or mediocre – can be traced back to the presence, effort and, enthusiasm that our mothers gave to us.
Regardless of how we feel about our moms, one thing is for certain, the fictional world of horror has always loved to exaggerate and play upon maternal instincts gone sour. Remember Piper Laurie in Carrie? or Mrs. Voorhees in Friday the 13th? They only wanted what was best for their babies in their own tortured, convoluted way.
The delightful fiction offered in this issue is in the spirit of those moms who don’t quite know where to draw the line. Who see that parent-child bond as a tightrope to further their madness. So, please, enjoy, and of course, Happy Mother’s Day!
