* Nina's mother in ''Film/BlackSwan'' is shown to be overbearing and emotionally crippling; she still lives with her twenty-eight year old daughter, [[StageMom constantly keeps tabs on Nina's career (by phoning in to the people at the ballet company)]], projects her own regrets and failures on her - at one point implying that Nina was the reason she had to give up on her dreams... to ''Nina's face'' to less, and is presented to the audience as a barrier between Nina and her sexuality, let alone adulthood in general. [[spoiler:How much of this is the real her, and how much is a result of Nina's slowly slipping grip on reality is anyone's guess]].

* ''Film/TheHungerGames'': It is shown in the film that Peeta's mother at the very least is abusive. She is shown to be yelling at him, presumably for burning bread. The other indicator is that she told him that District 12 might have a winner, and it is more telling that his response is "She wasn't talking about me."

* Frank Zito's mother in Film/{{Maniac}}. In the original it is strongly implied that his mother regularly burnt him with cigarettes, we see the scars in the opening scene on his chest as he examines them in a mirror. There is also a scene in which he burns a little boy mannequin with a cigarette in the same place, while he has an audio flashback of his mother's psychological abuse. There are several audio flashbacks of her locking him in a closet as punishment while he begs her not to. In a scene where he talks to a victim (who he imagines as his mother) he mentions how she brought men back to the house for sex in return for money, and how he had witnessed this as a child. He also mentions how she would go out and leave him on his own. In the remake, there are visual flashbacks of him witnessing his mother having sex with her clients. He was locked in the closet and she knew he could see her having sex, so in the case she intended him to witness it. Another visual flashback is shown of his mother having sex with a client, this time outside (and at night), Frank watches them and is clearly disturbed. She is then verbally abusive to him and shouts at him to wait in the car.

* The entire reason two brothers attempt to build a flying machine in ''Film/{{RadioFlyer}}'' is to escape their [[WickedStepmother Wicked Stepfather]]. "The King", as he's called, is particularly abusive to Bobby, the younger brother, beating him over the tiniest things while in a drunken rage. At one point Bobby even needs to be hospitalized for the abuse.

* ''Film/JugFace'': Loriss responds to her refusing to submit to a virginity test by burning her thigh with a cigarette, and then cuts her finger to find out who took said virginity. Sustin is more caring, but still complicit. [[spoiler:That is, until she runs off with Dawai, and he whips her so badly she miscarries.]]

*** In the ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' comic series, we find that the Mandalorian MadScientist Demgol has a daughter. Having a war criminal who experiments on children (including her) and captured prisoners is certainly gonna insure she is ''really'' messed up as an adult. And wouldn't you know it, that's exactly what happens.
