Directed by Severin Fiala, Veronika Franz
In the heat of the summer lays a lonesome house in the countryside where nine year old twin brothers await their mother’s return. When she comes home, bandaged after cosmetic surgery, nothing is like before, and the children start to doubt whether this woman is actually who she says she is. What ensues is a terrifying observational struggle with fatal consequences on par with THE SHINING and DEAD RINGERS.
A pair of twins doubt their mother is who she says she is in this shocking international gem.
Cast: Susanne Wuest, Lukas Schwarz, Elias Schwarz, Hans Escher
i hope shudder improves its movie loading. It buffers here and there. It kind of reminds me of the blockbuster days when you'd hire a movie that was scratched and you wouldn't be able to enjoy the movie because it keeps scratching throughout the movie.... yeah that's my analogy. Oh, yeah. Hopefully this is a good movie. 5 Skulls out of 5 skulls
It’s so long and boring.
This film has a twist you will guess within the first 5 minutes. It is so obvious that it almost feels intentional. If that bothers you then it is probably safe to skip this one. If not, great, because the rest of the movie is something special. It has great performances, is beautifully shot (on 35mm!) and has a building sense of dread that culminates in a disturbing climax.
