Mother & Son Stepcest in “Tadpole”

image

Low budget coming-of-age story about a 15-year-old boy, Oscar, who falls in love with his stepmother, Eve.

Sigourney Weaver is hot for her son again in Tadpole. Beautiful, sophisticated women are all over Oscar Grubman. He is sensitive and compassionate, speaks French fluently, is passionate about Voltaire, and thinks the feature that tells the most about a woman is her hands. On the train home from Chauncey Academy for the Thanksgiving weekend, Oscar confides in his best friend that he has plans for this vacation—he will win the heart of his true love. But there is one major problem—Oscar’s true love is his stepmother Eve. Oscar is certain that he could be a better mate to Eve than his work-obsessed father. He fails to win Eve’s heart and is consequently dejected. Oscar’s path to his true love is further crossed by Diane, Eve’s best friend who, one night while wearing Eve’s borrowed perfumed scarf, offers him temporary comfort in an unconventional tryst. For Diane, Oscar fills a void in her life. For Oscar, Diane is somewhat of a distraction, as his continued pursuit of Eve leads to an unexpected resolution. (IMDB)

This isn’t the first time Sigourney Weaver has had serious chemistry with her son, I also would recommend “Imaginary Heroes,” which also features canon incest.

Purchase Tadpole from Amazon.

“Imaginary Heroes:” Sexual awakening smothered in incest

image

The Travis family façade is destroyed by an event incomprehensible to them — an event which will open locked doors and finally reveal the secrets that have haunted them for decades. [IMDB]

Imaginary Heroes” (2004) gives us yet one more troubled suburban family, with suicide and drugs and a chill at the dinner table. [Roger Ebert]

This is another great movie about dysfunctional families and contains a loving and shippable brother/sister relationship, a close mother/son relationship, and accidental incest. Read under the cut for that major spoiler. But I recommend watching the film first because it is a real surprise.

Brotherly incestuous subtext & mother/son abuse in “Captivity”

Just when you think you are going to watch just another scary horror movie…yep, more incest. And in more than one way.

image

A man and a woman awaken to find themselves captured in a cellar. As their kidnapper drives them psychologically mad, the truth about their horrific abduction is revealed.(IMDB)

Back again to bring us more “hot melting incest” is Elisha Cuthbert, who starred in one of the most incestuous heavy subtexts movies ever, House Of Wax.

If you like horror movies (like I do) and twists, I think you will really enjoy this film. Plus it features two pretty awesome Canadians – Daniel Gillies (The Originals) and Elisha Cuthbert (House of WaxThe Quiet). What is it about Elisha Cuthbert always getting stalked by brothers in twisted horror movies?

image

Most of the reviews I read about this film said it was ripping off Saw or trying to be like a torture porn. I don’t agree. I enjoyed the whole movie and thought it was more of a twist on those franchises than anything. It is nowhere near as gory and torturous as Saw or Hostel. I don’t care for useless gore or just killing for the sake of it, and didn’t find this that gory at all. The camera usually fades out when anything to graphic comes up, which is only a few times. It does rely on a few cheap tricks, and included some unnecessary stuff in the beginning, but it makes up for it in the end. You won’t see it coming (unless you read the rest of this review, but I urge you not unless you watch the movie first because spoiler alert!)  I thought it was one of the few actually intelligent horror movies, if you look at it a bit closer.

Oedipus Complex in “Adore,” “Labor Day,” and “Spanking the Monkey.”

imageimageimage

Adore  (AKA Perfect Mothers) is an Australian-French film where a pair of best friends since childhood (and neighbors) fall for each other’s sons. The film is based on a novella by British writer Doris Lessing called The Grandmothers. What is so sad is that the book helped win Doris Lessing the 2007 Nobel Prize, but the film version has received mostly harsh criticism calling it  ”mommy porn,”  “mother love down under,” and one reviewer said  ”This is possibly the most warped, incestuous, weird movie I’ve seen.” There are also countless that dive into the hidden incestuous nature and sublimation of it, like this one titled Adore-ing Pop Culture`s Last Taboo.  No wonder I love it.

Some have even compared it to the 2009 Saturday Night Live “Motherlover,” comedy music video:

“What time is it, dawg?” asked Andy Samberg in the video. “It’s time for a switcheroo,” replied best bud Justin Timberlake. In unison, they called out to each other: “We both love our moms, women with grown women needs. … To me, you’re like a brother, so be my mother lover.”

 image

Adore is a story about childhood best friends, Lil and Roz (Naomi Watts and Robin Wright), who both marry and settle as neighbors in the same small seaside resort town where they grew up. Their hunky surfer sons – Roz’s Tom and Lil’s Ian – grow up together as brothers in turn. To quote Roz,  ”they are like young gods.”

A woman gives birth to her lover in this Oedipus by the beach flick “Womb.”

image

The perfect Mother’s Day film, no?

A woman’s consuming love forces her to bear the clone of her dead beloved in Womb. From his infancy to manhood, she faces the unavoidable complexities of her controversial decision.

The film explores the controversial topic of incest in a sensitive fashion. This, interwoven with the themes of cloning, loving, losing and letting go makes this film both unique and boundary pushing at the same time.

The film stars Eva Green (The Dreamers, Camelot) as Rebecca and Matt Smith (Doctor Who) as Tommy. We see Rebecca care about Tommy’s clone, and genuinely wants to be a good mother, but there’s an underlying foreboding with the possibility of sexual tension and incest.
