"Die, Mommie, Die!" is a campy noir classic that follows the devious actions of aging Hollywood star Angela Arden (played by Droege) who is trapped in an unhappy marriage and plots to kill her husband in order to be with her young lover. When Angela's children learn of her plot and seek revenge, madness ensues in this over-the-top comedy.
