31 Days of Halloween - Day 24 - Movie

Two twin brothers, whose mother has her face covered in bandages after reconstructive surgery, begin to suspect that she's not actually their mother.

Goodnight Mommy (2014) is a slow burn movie. Strange, haunting, and with no score, their is a feeling of dread insinuating the film from the very beginning. The film is full of characters with odd behavior, and blurred artwork on the walls reinforcing the idea of unfocused identity. The movie comes with a twist, and plenty of clues leading up to it, The observant viewer should see it coming from early on. The performances are all spot on, and the stark scenery beautiful.
