Second Trailer for Terrifying B&W Indie Horror 'The Eyes of My Mother'
"You've done this before…? Why do you do it?" Magnolia Pictures has released a second trailer for the B&W indie horror drama The Eyes of My Mother, timed for release on Halloween because it's a twisted little tease that will haunt you well into the night. Diana Agostini plays "Mother" in this nasty horror about a mother who teaches her daughter to be "unfazed by death". 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. The Eyes of My Mother stars Kika Magalhães, Will Brill, Flora Diaz, Paul Nazak, Clara Wong, and Olivia Bond. There's only one scene in this new trailer but if you listen (and look) carefully, you will figure out what's happening.
Here's the second official trailer for Nicolas Pesce's The Eyes of My Mother, from Magnolia's YouTube:
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.

Poetics of horror is all that is evolving, nothing more these days ...

There seems to be no end to these articles on extremely inventive, scary movies only to have all the air let out of the balloon when you see the trailer and realize it's just another one of those torture movies like the last one I got sucked into renting. Anymore as soon as I see that Magnet Pictures logo, I just stop the trailer right there.
