A remake of Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala’s 2014 horror movie Goodnight Mommy is on the way from Prime Video, and this morning the official trailer has been released.
Goodnight Mommy comes to Amazon Prime Video on September 16, 2022.
Naomi Watts, who of course starred in the excellent American remake of The Ring, recently landed the remake’s leading role, with Cameron and Nicholas Crovetti (“Big Little Lies”) playing the twin sons of her character. Jeremy Bobb (“The Outsider”), Crystal Lucas-Perry (Mimesis Nosferatu) and Peter Hermann (“Younger”) have also landed supporting roles.
In Goodnight Mommy, “When twin brothers (Cameron and Nicholas Crovetti) arrive at their mother’s (Naomi Watts) country home to discover her face covered in bandages—the result, she explains, of recent cosmetic surgery—they immediately sense that something doesn’t add up. She sets strange new house rules, smokes in her bathroom, and secretly rips 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 sinking suspicion that the woman beneath the gauze, who’s making their food and sleeping in the next room, isn’t their mother at all.”
Kyle Warren wrote the new script, with Matt Sobel (Take Me To The River) directing.
