Moms of Horror

Pamela Voorhees - We know her as Jason's from Friday the 13th mother, chick chick chick, ha ha ha, "Jason, mother is talking to you!".  Pammy, a close personal friend of mine, well, not really.  I just spent alot of time with her onscreen as a wee little lass,  is a former camp cook and in the original Friday the 13th film, the character is simply named Mrs. Voorhees, her first name not being revealed until Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter.

The character was portrayed by Betsy Palmer in the first two films. During the character's brief appearance in Freddy vs. Jason, she was played by Paula Shaw. Nana Visitor played Pamela Voorhees in the 2009 re-imagining of Friday the 13th.

Margaret White - Known as Creepy Carrie White's religious fanatic mother, Margaret White is portrayed in the original film by Piper Laurie.  Carrie is continually provoked by her psycho mother and her abusive and overbearing ways.

Morticia Addams - The Addams Family - Morticia Addams is the mother of Pugsley and Wednesday Addams in the Addams Family Show and Movies.  The original actress who portrayed Mrs. Addams was Carolyn Jones in the TV series in the 60's and she was portrayed by Anjelica Huston in The Addams Family 1991 Movie and Addams Family Values in 1993.  Daryl Hannah played Morticia in the 1998 film Addams Family Reunion. Ellie Harvie played Morticia in the revival series, The New Addams Family. 

Lily Munster - The Munsters, The Munsters Today, and Mockingbird Lane - Lily Munster, Countess of Shroudshire née Dracula is a vampire and the mother of the Munster Family in the CBS sitcom The Munsters, originally played by Yvonne De Carlo.  Lee Meriwether portrays Lily in The Munsters Today and Portia de Rossi takes on the role of Lily in Mockingbird Lane.

Tiffany Ray (Charles Lee Ray's Gal - Child's Play) - much like Chucky, is a killer doll who has an addiction to killing, but often feels remorse after doing so.  She even calls an addiction support line in The Seed of Chucky, because she wants to stop killing.

She appears in two Child's Play Series movies so far and will appear in the next one.  Jennifer Tilly portrays Tiffany before she turns into a doll in The Bride of Chucky and plays herself, the actress in The Seed of Chucky. Jennifer Tilly continues to be the voice of the doll when Tiffany's spirit enters the doll.  Mrs. Tiffany Ray is the mother of their daughter/son Glen/Glenda (Sh*tface).

Mother Firefly (House of 1,000 Corpses & Devils Rejects) - Gloria Firefly is the sexy mommy of the Firefly Family, which includes of Rufus T. Firefly, Tiny Firefly, and Vera Ellen "Baby" Firefly. She is also the "adoptive mother" of Otis B. Driftwood.  She is a terrible flirt, even to her victims.

She appears as mom in both House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects, although she is portrayed by two different actresses, the first being the recently late Karen Black and the latter, Leslie Easterbrook.  Mama Firefly allowed her kids to kill and helped them get rid of the bodies.  She also shot and killed George Wydell.  Although just as evil and ruthless as Otis and Baby, she loves her kids to pieces.

George's Wydell's younger brother kisses and simultaneously stabs Mother Firely multiple times in the abdomen in a very creepy and sexual manner until she bleeds to death.
