When the original Austrian film was released, it quickly became one of the most notable horror films of the year, earning a spot on a number of year-end lists across multiple outlets, even s It wasn’t a big box. – clerk. Given the passion of the original and the talent attached to this new version of the material, the project is one of the most anticipated horror offerings of the upcoming Halloween season. Check out the trailer for Good night mom below ahead of its Prime Video debut on September 16.
When the twin brothers (Cameron and Nicholas Crovetti) arrive at their mother’s (Naomi Watts) country house to find her face covered in bandages – the result, she says, of recent cosmetic surgery – they immediately sense that something is wrong. She makes strange new house rules, smokes in her bathroom, and secretly tears 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 growing suspicion that the woman under the gauze, who cooks their food and sleeps in the next room, is not their mother at all.
Good night mom also stars Jeremy Bobb (the stranger), Crystal Lucas-Perry (Mimesis Nosferatu) and Peter Hermann (Younger) in supporting roles. Matt Sobel (take me to the river) is directing, with a screenplay by Kyle Warren.
“My favorite films are those that invite audiences into their protagonist’s journey,” Sobel said in a statement during Watts’ official announcement. “In our reinvention of Good night mom, the fear of abandonment – and the terrible realization that our loved ones may not be what they seem – create an immersive nightmare, with visceral sensations at the forefront. I can’t wait to create this jaw-dropping story with Amazon and the incomparable Naomi Watts.”
Although the new movie could be described as a bit of a reimagining, Watts confirmed to ComicBook.com earlier this year that it’s “still a really weird movie.”
Good night mom premieres on Prime Video on September 16.
