The Eyes of My Mother Trailer

"I remember I was fascinated by how an inside of the body looked. She always hoped I would be a surgeon one day." Magnolia has released a trailer for the indie horror titled The Eyes of My Mother, which first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year. Diana Agostini plays "Mother" in this creepy horror thriller about a mother who teaches her daughter to be "unfazed by death" - who turns out to be rather freaky as a grown up. The film has been described as a nightmare that is so unsettling and disturbing that many who've seen it want to forget it but can't. It stays in your mind and will haunt you for days, weeks, even months after seeing it. The film stars Kika Magalhães, Will Brill, Flora Diaz, Paul Nazak, Clara Wong, and Olivia Bond. You can get a sense of the gruesomeness and bleakness of the film in this trailer.

Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Nicolas Pesce's The Eyes of My Mother, in high def from Apple:

The Eyes of My Mother Poster

In their secluded farmhouse, a mother, formerly a surgeon in Portugal, teaches her daughter, Francisca, to understand anatomy and be unfazed by death. One afternoon, a mysterious visitor horrifyingly shatters the idyll of Francisca’s family life, deeply traumatizing the young girl, but also awakening some unique curiosities. Though she clings to her increasingly reticent father, Francisca’s loneliness and scarred nature converge years later when her longing to connect with the world around her takes on a distinctly dark form. The Eyes of My Mother is both written & directed by American filmmaker Nicolas Pesce, making his feature debut. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Magnolia Pictures will release The Eyes of My Mother in select theaters + on VOD starting December 2nd this fall.

    Loved this trailer, Alex. Thanks...and I'm not really a fan of the horror genre. I loved the black and white photography. It looks interesting....however...this 'it will haunt you for days, weeks, even months after seeing it'...really? Months? Isn't that being a tad bit hyperbolic? Is that your statement or quoting another. Just wondering as I can't imagine a film haunting me period, let alone for thanks again, Alex. I'm interested in this from seeing the trailer.
    • ever seen Audition? It took me months to shake it off...months

        Thanks for your reply, and yes I've seen Audition, if you mean the Japanese film from 1999. I hope you have managed to recover fully from viewing the film and are back to your normal self. Cheers!

    Holy shit, looks like a perfect mix of terror and horror. Good cinematography too. Looking out for this.

    Strange idea for a family evening. This idea of film. But it seems like it could say a lot about the society...

    NOPE. Too dark for me.
