The remake of Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala’s 2014 unsettling horror movie Goodnight Mommy is headed your way this week from Prime Video.
Naomi Watts (The Ring) stars along with Cameron and Nicholas Crovetti (“Big Little Lies”). Jeremy Bobb (“The Outsider”), Crystal Lucas-Perry (Mimesis Nosferatu), and Peter Hermann (“Younger”) co-star.
In Goodnight Mommy, “When twin brothers (Cameron and Nicholas Crovetti) arrive at their mother’s (Naomi Watts) country home to discover her face covered in bandages—the result, she explains, of recent cosmetic surgery—they immediately sense that something doesn’t add up. She sets strange new house rules, smokes in her bathroom, and secretly rips up a drawing they gave her—things their loving mother would never do.
As her behavior grows increasingly bizarre and erratic, a horrifying thought takes root in the boys’ minds: The sinking suspicion that the woman beneath the gauze, who’s making their food and sleeping in the next room, isn’t their mother at all.”’
Matt Sobel (Take Me To the River) directs from the script penned by Kyle Warren. The original film’s Severin Fiala and Veronika Franz are executive producing.
Goodnight Mommy premieres exclusively on Prime Video on September 16, 2022.
