Goodnight Mommy(Review)[Terrifying Theatrical Tuesday]
There are some films which makes you think you know what is going to happen, only for something else entirely to occur. This is one of those films, a psychological horror movie, but a damn good one.
The film is about twin brothers whose mom returned home from just having facial reconstruction surgery, and start to suspect the woman who returned is an imposter. They would have every right to suspect this as she sometimes acts very cold towards them, and she ignores one of the brothers completely. She doesn't act like a normal mother, but as you see, the sons aren't exactly normal either.
So the film really does well in making you focus in one direction so when the twist comes, you don't expect it. There are clues if you pay attention enough but you don't realize how it all ties together until the very end. This is a German film, but there are subtitles to help you understand what is being said. I will warn anyone there are scenes in the movie that may be hard to watch, especially when the boys apply various methods to see if the woman is really their mother or not. Oh and if you don't like bugs, the boys keep a cockroach colony, and they do have a plot point, so just watch out for that
definitely recommend watching this as it is something different, and as I said, the final twist really hits you out of nowhere. Foreign horror films really have a way of standing out from the typical American horror film, and this one really does stand out very well.
