What are the two little boys up to? And what is wrong with Mommy? It seems nothing is what it seems but I cannot work out why.
Sounds corny? Sounds trashy? Sounds like you’ve seen it all before? Think again!
Goodnight Mommy is a beautifully shot, mysterious story which grows ever darker as the narrative twists and turns like a venomous snake slithering along an upstairs corridor looking for answers in the dark. If you are a fan of thrillers/horrors but do not mind a slow build up with no jump scares or splatter fests, then Goodnight Mommy will provide you with a tense, rewarding experience with a few very nice surprises along the way.
Wonderful Cinema strongly recommends you do not ruin the impact the directors meticulously planned for viewers by watching trailers or reading spoilers. But for those of you who cannot resist…
