Ever since I saw the first trailer for Austrian horror thriller Goodnight Mommy, I have been hooked, and now comes a brand new trailer that will totally blow your mind.
The new trailer comes courtesy of RADiUS-TWC, who will release the film in the US on 11th September. There are no UK dates to get excited about yet.
The new trailer builds menace, while delivering one unnerving moment after another, rattling the senses with horrific imagery and sinister music. This is expertly crafted to maximise the films horror potential, and from the looks of things, this could be one of the most ambitious and inventive horror films to come along in quite some time.
The film is about two twins whose Mother returns from a hospital operation with a bandaged face, but is it really their Mother underneath those bandages?
Goodnight Mommy is written and directed by Severin Fiala and Veronika Franz. The cast includes Susanne Wuest, and real-life twins Elias Schwarz and Lukas Schwarz.
In the heat of the summer. A lonesome house in the countryside between woods and corn fields. Nine-year-old twin brothers are waiting for their mother. When she comes home, bandaged after cosmetic surgery, nothing is like before. The children start to doubt that this woman is actually their mother. It emerges an existential struggle for identity and fundamental trust.
