Goodnight Mommy (w/ Filmmakers Severin Fiala & Veronika Franz in person!)

Severin Fiala & Veronika Franz’ taut and brutal film begins with twin brothers frolicking through the idyllic Austrian countryside in a final expression of childhood innocence, before a relentless sense of creeping fear takes hold. Their mother has returned home, following an unspoken horrific event, but mommy—wrapped in a nightmarish mask of gauze and bandages—seems different…

A treat for fans of extreme horror and art house cinema, and an exercise in resilience for everyone else, Goodnight Mommy gets under your skin like a malevolent, eerily patient little parasite, and taking its sweet time as it fills you with dread.

Dir. Severin Fiala & Veronika Franz, 2014, DCP, 99 min.
