Goodnight Mommy Interview: Veronika Franza & Severin Fiala


In Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala’s psychological horror stunner Goodnight Mommy, twin brothers Lukas and Elias (Lukas Schwarz and Elias Schwarz) spend their days in isolated idyll in the Austrian countryside, collecting bugs and playing hide-and-seek in cornfields while they wait for their mother to return home following intensive facial surgery. When she does, the boys notice she’s changed. It’s not just her bandage-wrapped visage that raises red flags. Mom (Susanne Wuest) keeps Lukas and Elias at a distance and institutes new rules around the house, demanding that noise be kept to a minimum and that the blinds remain closed. Our fair-haired lads can only arrive at one conclusion: This woman isn’t their mom at all.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
