Watch: Tense, Unnerving Trailer For Horror ‘Goodnight Mommy’

Watch: Tense, Unnerving Trailer For Horror 'Goodnight Mommy'

Following its Venice premiere last year,Goodnight Mommyhas gained some well-deserved kudos on the festival circuit (we praised it in our review from Karlovy Vary) and we can finally see why in this new trailer.

Austrian filmmakers Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala take us to a sequestered home in the woods — an Andrew Wyeth painting gone astray — where two young brothers question the authenticity of the woman (their mother, or is she?) in their home. Her entire face (played by an engaging Susanne Wuest) bandaged from serious reconstructive surgery, this pulsating clip delves into the minds of confused youths yearning for a sense of normalcy.

The film will be in theaters on September 11th, so check it out, if this trailer isn’t terrifying enough to deter you from seeing the whole thing. We hope it doesn’t, because this is sure to be one of the best horror films since “It Follows” or “The Babadook.” Don’t miss it.
