Move over Funny Games, it looks like there’s a new Austrian horror film in town! And it only took about 18 years for it to happen. It’s true, there isn’t an abundance of horror movies spewing from the republic of Austria – but it looks like they have a winner on their hands with Goodnight Mommy.
Ok, I have no idea what was being said in that trailer, but I do know two things: First, that was one hell of a slap the mother put on that kid. And second, this movie looks creepy as fuck. Early word about this one is that it lives up to the hype of the trailer by the way. Goodnight Mommy revolves around a mother, who is a television personality, that goes in for some plastic surgery and comes home to her two sons “changed”. You can tell from the trailer that things seem to go a bit awry when she does return, and what’s up with the masks that the kids are wearing? I’m sure it will all make sense when Goodnight Mommy is finally released here in the US. And that can’t come soon enough for me!
