The Meanest Movie Mothers of All Time

Evil movie mothers are so rotten to the core tha after seeing one of them on film, you may go crying to your own mommy positively joyous that you weren't at the receiving end of some of these evil movie moms.

Who are the most evil mothers in movies? This list of bad, cruel, horrible, twisted, evil, terrible, horrible, no good, very bad mothers from a variety of movies, new and old. From Faye Dunaway's portrayal of a career-obsessed mother in Mommy Dearest to Mo'Nique's Oscar-winning turn as a physically, emotionally, and sexually abusive mother in Precious, there's no shortage of terrible movie moms on this mean movie moms list.

CAUTION: Some descriptions may contain spoilers, so if you haven't seen the movie in question, maybe skip that entry! (And yes, I know that cat Shaft is a bad mother...but he's still ineligible.)

    "Carrie" (1976)

    Portrayed by: Piper Laurie

    Carrie White is telekinetic, and as if that weren't enough for a teenage girl to be saddled with, her mother is also a violent religious fanatic prone to wild mood swings and manic episodes. It's basically like being raised by a coke-fueled female Glenn Beck. If Margaret only locks you in a closet without supper and forces you to pray, consider yourself lucky.
