Most Memorable Psycho/Intensely Scary Moms in Horror

Just watched the trailer for the re-imagining of "Carrie". This got me thinking. Not sure Moore can pull it off, but want to find out. That led to this idea. Who do you think should be on this list? Naturally, I'm starting off with Piper Laurie in the original 1976 "Carrie". The other two who came immediately to mind? Betsy Palmer as Mrs. Vorhees in the original 1980 "Friday the 13th" and a more obscure one I consider on my list of classics: Shirley Knight as Jerolyn in 1982's "The Sender". Your additions and thoughts?

My first thoughts were of Joan Crawford in Mommy Dearest, but thats not a horror movie. Then I instantly thought of "Mother" from Psycho a jealous possive woman ,but then I just watched MAMA. That ghost is a real beee otch when it comes to the girls and having nothing come in between their relationship.
