I had the whole movie figured out with in the first 15 minutes. It's hard for a movie to build when its inevitable twist ending is as obvious as the one in "Goodnight Mommy."

I appreciate horror movies that challenge the genre limits. This foreign affair definitely utilizes the meaning of 'challenge'. This is one I paid absolute attention to detail with and was still left scratching my head. I wasn't disturbed, or creeped out by any of this film, but I did find some of it detesting. The reasoning behind the two boy's psychotic turn is completely unclear. No truth's to their past (or present for that matter) with their mother are eluded to. That would be fine, if the film didn't randomly dive into these 'dreamlike' sequences that happen abruptly and are shown exactly like real life as is depicted in the film.

"Sie ist so anders …"
Apparently Austria had more to offer than just Tiroler films with an original title like "Auf die alm mit drei lustige blonde mädels", Milka, Edelweiss and Schwarzenegger.

The design is so tight and sober as the interior of the house where Lukas (Luke Schwarz) and Elias (Elias Schwarz) live. Twins who, which is normal with twins, eerily look alike. You rather can call them Siamese twins because one can't be without the other.
When their mother (Susanne Wuest) comes back home, after a stay in the hospital, the attitude of the twins towards her isn't as you'd expect. A wary, aloof …

This movie has probably the most misleading and the most spoiled filled trailer I've seen in awhile. If you haven't seen the trailer yet then please stay far way from it, because the trailer as I said is very misleading and for some reason it connects a couple of scenes together in the trailer to make you think something happens that never occurred in the movie. You've been warned.

Before seeing 'Goodnight Mommy', I was expecting it to be the 2015 "Babadook", just …
