It’s pretty obvious from the trailers that Austrian horror, Goodnight Mommy, will be pretty messed up. However, a new clip has arrived showing just how unhinged and grotesque with film will be.
You can view the clip below.
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.
