SFF Review: Goodnight Mommy, a faceless mother returns home

It’s rare that there’s a NEW, non b-type movie that I’m itching to see, but this? I love the idea, and if it’s even half as good as described, then WOW!

(PS: the RiffTrax Live! version of The Room is the last movie I saw…last Wednesday! OHAI, I’ll finally get to watch a good movie!)

One of most unhinging films I saw at the Stanley Film Festival came from directing tandem Severin Fiala and Veronika Franz, whose psychological shocker Goodnight Mommy (Ich seh, Ich seh) delivered a nasty, gut-grinding film about damaged minds and tormented children. In the film, nine-year-old twin brothers discover that after their mother comes home, bandaged after cosmetic surgery, nothing is like before… especially her. Soon, doubt settles in and the children start to wonder if this woman is actually who she says she is.
