Last year Fantastic Fest screened Goodnight Mommy as part of its secret screening line up. The combination of excitement and mystery was electric in the auditorium. Fantastic Fest founder, Tim League, headed to the front of the auditorium to announce a movie that he found that was horrifying. He didn’t tell the audience what it was called or anything about it. He gave it his stamp of approval and let the crowd discover it on their own.That was truly the best way to have experienced it.
While the trailer for Goodnight Mommy does give away the title of the film and shows some of the scenes. It does a great job of keeping the mystery wrapped up. In fact, this trailer is damn right chilling. It was a personal favorite from last years festival and I’m sure you horror fiends will agree that this is something new, different and creepy cool.
I would give a synopsis of the film but honestly this is better enjoyed blind. Check out the trailer and let us know what you think.
