What would you do if you suspected your teenage son of planning a school shooting? In writer/director Tucia Lyman's found footage thriller M.O.M. (Mothers of Monsters) a worried mother (Melinda Page Hamilton) reacts by secretly installing a network of cameras in her home in hopes of finding out just what her sinister son (Bailey Edwards) is up to.

Of the film's genesis and release, Lyman said, "I've always been intrigued by real-life horror films that use the dysfunctions of society as a vessel to explore the truth. M.O.M. is a work of narrative fiction, but much of the behaviour, scenarios and dialogue were borrowed from the journals and publications of real-life school shooters and their parents. It is a very confronting film, much like the subject matter itself, and I hope it will contribute to the national debate surrounding mental health stigma and gun violence in America."

M.O.M. (Mothers of Monsters) opens in Los Angeles March 13th, with a VOD release to follow.

Check out the trailer below.


The official synopsis reads:

A distraught mother (Hamilton) suspects her teenage son (Edwards) is plotting a school shooting, but when he slips through the cracks of the system, she is forced to take matters into her own hands. After installing an elaborate spy camera system in their home, Abbey captures a series of disturbing videos that confirm her worst fears.

Torn between a mother's unconditional love and a mother's acute intuition, Abbey caters her videos to all the other "mothers of monsters" online. Abbey's plan backfires when Jacob uses a dark family secret against her, launching both mother and son on a terrifying, and ultimately deadly, game of cat and mouse.
