Upcoming Film – “Goodnight Mommy”

Fantastically excited for the release of Goodnight Mommy this Friday, at the IFC Center. I’ll be seeing it hopefully that day and posting a review following.

Rumor has it that, at its festival premiers, several audience members had to run out of the theater due to the extremity of the ending. That alone makes it tantalising – the trailer seals the deal, so to speak.

This film seems to be a part of a festival trend, discovering quality, original horror films and bringing them to the mainstream. It occurred last year with “It Follows” and “The Babadook,” arguably the best horror films to come out in this decade. This year we have “Goodnight Mommy” and “The Witch,” among others. I’m hoping this is a start of a trend, paying more attention to indie horror that has a brain (and a heart).

Anyone else excited for this? Leave a comment and let me know what films are on your 2015 list!
