25 Times Mothers-In-Law Deserve Recognition As Protagonists In Horror Movies

There are no more traditionally strained relationships than the ones between mothers-in-law and their daughters-in-law or sons-in-law. Don’t get us wrong: Some of them are excellent, but the majority are not. Indeed, the character Viola Fields from “Monster-in-Law” didn’t come from nowhere. It comes from a real place, and that place is called The Land of the Nightmare Mother-in-Law.

As a result, many folks have turned to the Internet to share their most frustrating stories about mothers-in-law who just have no chill or even morals. From aggressively trying to control their daughters-in-law and sons-in-law to spreading COVID to their entire family, these mothers-in-law (or MILs) below are the protagonists in horror movies. Don’t believe us? Let’s scroll down and check them out for yourself! We promised that after watching these, you will not only be convinced that they are the villains in movies, but you will also laugh out loud at what they have done.
