Goodnight Mommy Plot

It’s mid-summer and two twin brothers are patiently waiting for their mother to come home following cosmetic surgery. She arrives with her face completely bandaged and is cold, distant and obsessive with them. Her personality change will have the kids wondering if she’s really their mother or is actually an impostor. Psychological horror produced by Ulrich Seidl, one of the great European filmmakers.

Movie Reviews

“A resonant, atmospheric horror film that treats its genre and its audience with unusual respect, before escalating in its last moments to a brilliantly uncompromised finale” Jessica Kiang: IndieWire 

“A masterful example of genre filmmaking’s ability to transcend its limitations, leaving a viewer not just frightened, but also changed” Michael O’Sullivan: The Washington Post 

“A wicked little chiller full of foreboding and malevolent twists (…) It has cult potential stamped all over it” David Rooney: The Hollywood Reporter
