Take an advance peek at the medical chiller that has been transplanted from Europe to the U.S.

GOODNIGHT MOMMY, a remake of Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala’s acclaimed 2014 film, is coming to Prime Video September 16. Matt Sobel (BRAND NEW CHERRY FLAVOR) directed from a script by Kyle Warren; Naomi Watts, Cameron Crovetti, Nicholas Crovetti and Peter Hermann star. The synopsis: “When twin brothers [the Crovettis] arrive at their mother’s [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.”
