Even though its limited theatrical is coming September 11th, the German horror/thriller Goodnight Mommy has already built up a reputation as being extremely unsettling, with most of the reviewers offering heavy praise.
Ryan Lattanzio wrote after the Fantastic Fest screening:
“While garden variety American horror movies have no problem turning children into harbingers of evil, “Goodnight Mommy” takes the unflinching unrest a step further to suggest that children could actually be inherently malevolent. “Goodnight Mommy” is a must-see for fans of extreme cinema and those movie-lovers who get off on taut editing, delicately placed sound design and tightly wound storytelling.”
Viewers also apparently “sprinted for the exit when their breaking points were reached”
This most definitely seems like something that fans of intense psychological horrors will enjoy. If you are having any doubts, take a look at the trailer and see for yourself.
