In a lonesome house in the countryside between woods and cornfields live nine-year-old twin brothers who are waiting for their mother in the heat of summer. When she comes home, bandaged after cosmetic surgery, nothing is like before. The children start to doubt that this woman is actually their mother. An existential struggle for identity and fundamental trust emerges.Written by

Dark and brutal, Goodnight Mommy is a psychological horror film that haves you guessing what is happening ad what will happen until the very end. However, at points, the film feels tedious and prolonged for no good reason, but this is generally coupled with some very intense sequences which involve a strong stomach to watch. The majority of this film is good fun, but maybe too ambitious to be taken overly serious.
Goodnight Mommy is a decent film. It is not as good as it was suggested to be, nor as scary as some tend to believe, but above all it was a solid hour and a half of watching this suspense mystery horror unfold. Decent, worth the watch, but I wouldn't see it again to be honest.
