See these films: Serial Mom + Psycho @ the Brattle

It seems obvious now, but it took the programming geniuses at the Brattle to pair these two movies for Mother's Day. Perhaps Alfred Hitchcock's scariest film, Psycho (1960; 7:15 pm) demonstrates the terrible things that can happen when Oedipal obsession, voyeurism, taxidermy, and motel management come together under one spooky roof. Perhaps John Waters's last genuinely transgressive film, Serial Mom (1994; 9:30 pm), shows the carnage that can occur when a perfect housewife (Kathleen Turner) takes perfection a little too far, doing in those guilty of such abominations as failing to recycle or wearing white shoes after Labor Day.

Sunday, May 13 at the Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge | $12; $10 students, seniors |
