Entertainment Reviews:

Premiere - 09/01/1994
"...Polite, perverse, sublime..." - Recommended
Rolling Stone - 05/05/1994
"John Waters and Kathleen Turner bring out the sicko best in each other in SERIAL MOM. It's a killingly funny spoof of crime and nonpunishment..."
New York Times - 04/13/1994
"...Turner leaps into the most delicious role she has had in years....[Waters] concocts a cute suburban satire, a warmly funny movie that even a mother could love..."
Entertainment Weekly - 08/26/1994
"...There's a martini dryness to Waters's sick sense of humor that's perfectly embodied in Turner's performance." -- Rating: B+
USA Today - 04/13/1994
"...This is a high Waters mark....The renegade director/writer kicks the nation smack in its collective groin, marvelously mocking the oh-so-current mania over crime figures and tabloid scandals..." -- 3 1/2 out of 4 stars
Total Film - 09/01/2013
4 stars out of 5 -- "Water's spin on serial-killer films holds up as both a skewering of celebrity culture and a gleeful gore-com."

Plot Synopsis:

SERIAL MOM is John Waters's spoof of (and homage to) the perfect suburban housewife--and the homicidal impulses seething beneath that cheery exterior.
