Review – ‘Goodnight Mommy’

The Telstar Film Review

Release date: 4 March 2016
Certification: 15
Running time: 99 min
Directors: Severin Fiala, Veronika Franz
Starring: Lukas Schwarz, Elias Schwarz, Susanne Wuest

Unsettling from the opening moments, this Austrian psychological horror from directors Severin Fiala and Veronica Franz keeps its cards pretty close to its chest throughout. We are given an intriguing set-up as our way in; two boys living in a modern, remote lakeside house with their mother, who has just undergone significant cosmetic facial surgery. Goodnight Mommy is intentionally secretive, preferring to create an overwhelming feeling of dread through impeccable sound editing and subtle shifts in perspective.
