Goodnight Mommy comes from directors Severin Fiala & Veronika Franz, who are also writing the film and it looks wonderful. The trailer is tense and quietly terrifying, showing twin boys as they realise their mother is not quite who they remember. It’s a truly terrifying concept and there is a sense of unease in the atmosphere which is maintained throughout, and it’s quite unbearable. The music which accompanies it is beautiful and haunting, making it even more unnerving to watch. I am extremely excited to see this one and it definitely looks like a must-see for horror fans. Take a look at the trailer below and immerse yourself in the nightmare.
In the heat of the summer lays a lonesome house in the countryside where nine year old twin brothers await their mother’s return. When she comes home, bandaged after cosmetic surgery, nothing is like before and the children start to doubt whether this woman is actually who she says she is. What ensues is a terrifying observational struggle with fatal consequences.
Be sure to catch Goodnight Mommy when it is released in the USA on 14th August 2015.
