Hey guys, Jana here,
‘Goodnight Mommy‘ has been a favorite for festivals worldwide since the first audience squirmed it’s way through a viewing and is officially Austria’s entry for Foreign Language Film for the upcoming 2016 Academy Awards in February who just got Chris Rock to MC btw, (check out that story here). Before the awards you can check out the flick when it’s available on Blu-ray and DVD on December 1st.
Anchor Bay Entertainment and RADiUS is kicking up some Oscar buzz with a film described as “Unsettling”, “Terrifying” and “Sinister”. Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala directed Susanne Wuest (Mommy) and twins Elias Schwarz and Lukas Schwarz. When you pick up the disc you also get a bonus feature, ‘A Conversation with Filmmakers Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala‘.
In a lonesome house in the countryside in the heat of mid-summer, nine year old twin brothers await their mother’s return from the hospital. When she comes home with her face obscured by bandages, nothing is like before and the children start to doubt whether this woman is actually who she says she is. What ensues is a terrifying struggle with fatal consequences on par with ‘The Shining‘ and ‘Dead Ringers‘.
