The twins aren’t spooked by her though. They believe this lady claiming to be their mother is an impostor.
Spooky twins are an antidote for the yuletide spirit.
Thank you so much
top movie made in austria….wow very bizarre and creepy!
very interesting and weird movie psychologically
A very strange and bizarre film. Well done EUM for this unique movie. You guys truly are the best of finding ‘effedup’ international films.
What an absolutely brilliant film! love it. I laughed. I cried. I WTF’d. Not really by the masks did indeed crack me up. See, you really need to get out of America to see any originality in the movies anymore. Here, Hollywood is too busy trying to shove political correctness down our throats by remaking the same movies and comic book characters over and over and over….Now with a black, female James Bond. Yeah… riiiiight. Can’t wait to see that one – NOT. This is why no one goes to the movies any more. I’ll be goddamned if I’m going to spend $50 between the wifey-poo and I to see the 5th remake of lame-ass Spiderman. Fuck Hollywood and all the repugnant Leftist scum there. I wish they’d all slowly starve to death and become rat bait. Now that, I’d pay $50 for the wifey-poo and I to watch!
But you guys here at EUM….. Such dedication, posting new content on Christmas… I love you madly and want to have you for diner. And just so you know – Liver and a nice Chianti do not go well together.
Very good movie…
I remember when I first heard of this movie and thought it was too creepy for me. Welp, here I go….
I was waiting for this to appear. I did manage to find it online with subtitles before, but it was a hard find, took me about, mmm, 5 minutes to find instead of the usual thirty seconds!!!
Once again EUM, a big thank you and Happy Christmas to you guys – you are fucking awesome!!!
that had me so genuinely creeped out…which is difficult to do. damn.
Crap wasted 1hr 30mins ?
id have definately taken a Skull home
bravo, i love them surprise twists…wasnttwisted or gorey et but def enjoyed thejourney.cheers eum i am greatful asf for this site and feel im doing someone a ‘solid’ each time i tell them about it….pure gold in a world where usually nothing of quality ever comes without strings or for free…yet here you are.(new zealand viewer)
I can’t stand Auschtrians (lived in Vienna during one year…) and their accents/dialects, but their movies seem to always be great! this one is a MASCHTERPIECE!
Reminds me of my sister and I.
Austria got much gems that you should seek out. The movies by Ulrich Seidl for example. After GOOD NIGHT MOMMY the directors Severin Fiala and Veronika Franz got the call from Hollywood and they did THE LODGE. I liked it but it wasn´t quite as good as their debut.
Decent! The acting is good but the plot is predictable, fell asleep two times watching this movie, kind of boring, but maybe that’s because it’s not really my thing. Someone would probably enjoy this way more than me
man the leftists in the comments are out of control, they feel tough behind their computer but where were they during the capitol hills patriotic dust-up, or charlottesville riot of 2017? pussies.
i wanted to like this, but as usual this german movie is plain bad and boring. like funny games was or those craptastic crocodiles movies, or the massively overrated das boot,
