Worst Movie Moms: A Look At The Craziest Matriarchs For Mother's Day (MASHUP)

Need added reason to appreciate your mom this Mother's Day? Hollywood has the solution.

We've seen an abundance of wonderful mothers portrayed in movies, but perhaps those who stick with us best are the crazies -- the screaming, conniving, sometimes knife-wielding matriarchs who refuse to go unappreciated. We'll get another glimpse of the nuttiest of all mad mothers this October when Chloë Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore reprise Sissy Spacek's and Piper Laurie's Oscar-nominated roles from the original 1976 film "Carrie." In the meantime, Laurie will retain her title as the Worst Movie Mom Ever. Check out the video montage above for a look at her and other Hollywood mamas who come close.
