The English-language remake of Goodnight Mommy has unwrapped its bandages to reveal an unsettling trailer. The film, which stars Naomi Watts (The Ring), debuts on Amazon Prime Video on the 16th of September.
Cameron and Nicholas Crovetti (Big Little Lies), Jeremy Bobb (The Outsider), Crystal Lucas-Perry (Mimesis Nosferatu), and Peter Hermann (Philomena) also star in Goodnight Mommy, which is based on the 2014 Austrian original from writer-directors Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala. Matt Sobel (Brand New Cherry Flavor) directed the remake, from a script by Kyle Warren. Franz and Fiala serve as executive producers alongside Watts.
In Goodnight Mommy, “When twin brothers arrive at their mother’s country home to discover her face covered in bandages—the result, she explains, of recent cosmetic surgery—they immediately sense that something doesn’t add up. She sets strange new house rules, smokes in her bathroom, and secretly rips up a drawing they gave her—things their loving mother would never do.
“As her behaviour grows increasingly bizarre and erratic, a horrifying thought takes root in the boys’ minds: The sinking suspicion that the woman beneath the gauze, who’s making their food and sleeping in the next room, isn’t their mother at all.”
