A pair of highly anticipated horror films will land on Amazon Prime Video in September with the remake of “Goodnight Mommy” and “My Best Friend’s Exorcism”…
October is usually booked as the month when horror movies really take over, but September is no slouch, especially with Amazon Prime Video dropping a pair of highly anticipated movies over the next few weeks.
First on September 16 is “Goodnight Mommy” – a remake of the 2014 Austrian film of the same name – with this version featuring Naomi Watts in the lead role alongside Cameron Crovetti, who fans might recognize from ” The Boys” and his brother Nicholas Crovetti.
Here are the plot details for “Goodnight Mommy”
“When twin brothers arrive home to find their mother’s demeanor altered and her face covered in surgical bandages, they begin to suspect that the woman under the gauze may not be their mother.”
The original film was incredibly disturbing and received rave reviews upon release. The new trailer definitely seems faithful to the source material, so check out “Goodnight Mommy” when it’s released on September 16.
The second horror movie coming to Amazon in September will be the adaptation of “My Best Friend’s Exorcism” from a book of the same name by acclaimed author Grady Hendrix.
Hendrix’s book was hugely popular right after its release, and it didn’t take long for Amazon to pick up the story for a movie now slated for release on September 30. Here are the plot details of this movie:
“The year is 1988. High school sophomores Abby and Gretchen have been best friends since fourth grade. But after a skinny bath night goes awry, Gretchen begins to act…differently. She is in a bad mood. She is irritable. And weird things happen whenever she’s around. Abby’s investigation leads her to startling discoveries – and by the time their story reaches its terrifying conclusion, Abby and Gretchen’s fate will be determined by a single question: is their friendship strong enough to defeat the devil?
The film adaptation stars Elsie Fisher and Amiah Miller in the lead roles as best friends Abby and Gretchen with Christopher Lowell (“Glow”) also playing a pivotal role in the upcoming film.
Check out this trailer featuring “My Best Friend’s Exorcism” which will be released on Amazon on September 30.
