Filmmaker Darren Aronofsky is the master behind films like Black Swan and Requiem for a Dream, two viscerally uncomfortable movies to watch. Now the trailer for his latest project has been released, and by the looks of it he’s embracing the creeps factor even stronger.
First of all, it’s called Mother! That’s creepy all on its own. Why is there an exclamation point? Why is it screaming?!
The cast is of the sort that only a top-shelf director can pull together — Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris, Michelle Pfeiffer and interestingly, Kristen Wiig.
In the era of gross slasher films, it looks like a deeply unnerving psychological thriller more in line with The Shining than The Omen.
And we are so on board.
