She was the foul, abusive and criminally insane mother of two equally degenerated sons known as Ike and Addley: who she happily aids in abusing three innocent women in all manner of horrific ways only to have the tables turned on her when the women decide to exact bloody vengeance on her and her evil clan.
Original FilmMother was portrayed by Rose Ross.
The plot begins with the long-time friendship of three women, Abbey, Jackie, and Trina, who reunite every year to take a camping trip. Once while setting their vacation up in the woods, they find their trip turns into a worst nightmare when they are captured by a group of two partially insane punk/"hillbilly" hybrids: Ike and Addley. The punks lead a comfortable life, living along with their mentally abnormal mother in an occult hovel situated amidst the wood. All through the movie, their mother goads her sons into acts of rape, violence and murder. Eventually one of the women is severely brutalized by Ike and Addley, and the remaining two escape before the first dies from her sustained injuries. They soon regroup, arm themselves, and set out for bloody revenge against Ike, Addley, and Mother.
