It only lasts two minutes, but the trailer for Amazon Prime's new horror film is enough to send shivers down your spine and make you want to call out for your mum - assuming she is who you think she is.
Prime's new version of Goodnight Mommy is a reimagining of Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala’s 2014 Austrian film of the same name, and stars Naomi Watts apparently in the role of a mother to two twin boys.
However, when they go to visit her at her country home it begins to become clear that she might not be their mum after all.
Check out the trailer below:
Things get off to a wholesome start in the trailer as the twins, played by Cameron and Nicholas Crovetti, excitedly rush to meet their mum, but in true horror movie fashion, it's not long before things take a turn.
The boys are left confused when they find Watts' character with a face covered in bandages from a recent cosmetic surgery, and throughout their stay they strive to get to the bottom of who's behind the mask - much to their 'mother's' frustration.
"Don't you think something's different?" the kids question, while looking at old photos of their mum in comparison to her now-bandaged face. "I don't think that's our mother."
Directed by Matt Sobel and written by Kyle Warren, the film is set to arrive on Amazon Prime on 16 September, with Edge of Darkness and Philomena actor Peter Hermann also appearing.
The release of the trailer has got horror fans very excited for the remake, with many praising the decision to cast Watts following her previous appearances in horrors and thrillers such as The Ring and Mulholland Drive.
"I'll watch anything with Naomi Watts in it, she hella actress," one fan wrote.
Another commented: "The original bugged me out. This looks interesting; kinda wish I could forget the story completely before watching."
Some film fans have argued there was 'no need' for a remake, with one person questioning: "Great cast!! But why remake a good recent movie? Why?"
The hesitance suggests Watts and the rest of the new cast will be tasked with trying to win some people over with their take on the creepy story, but we'll have to wait until 16 September to find out whether they succeed.
