They face "horror" or experience it; they are "horror" or take part to it; they bear "horror" or give birth to it. For Mother's Day, here's a look at some of the most memorable movie mothers from horror movies (and we mean real moms, not 'presences', 'ghosts' or 'illusions').

Which "horror" mom is your favorite?

Thanks for three inclusions...
Sorry but Mommy Bates is disqualified from this list due to not being real enough :)

Somewhat tongue-in-cheek:

You could almost consider Mrs. Delores Bickerman (Betty White) as the mother of the baby alligators at the end of Lake Placid (1999).

Please Dan, can you explicit the "humorous" aspect of that inclusion :)
Thanks

ElMo,

At the end of 'Lake Placid' Mrs. Delores Bickerman (Betty White) feeds the baby alligators that are the children of the huge alligator that terrorized the lake. Since the huge alligator is defeated and killed, Betty White effectively became the mother of the baby alligators. This also provides a Betty White option to your poll.

However, I did not really intend this as a serious suggestion. When I looked at your list for Memorable Horror Moms I saw your list for Betty White vs. Cloris Leachman and came up with this hair brained suggestion.
