'The Eyes Of My Mother' LATEST Review: A Good Gorey And Gothic Indie Nightmare Film! [DETAILS HERE]
The movie "The Eyes of my Mother" is another horror and thriller opening this week of December. It gives a different twist on horror as the movie shows a weird and insane relationship of mother and daughter. They share they love for the human anatomy which mainly is what the movie is all about.
According to IMDB, "The Eyes of my Mother" starts from a secluded farmhouse where a mother, a former surgeon in Portugal teaches her daughter (Francisca) to understand anatomy and not be scared by death. One afternoon, a visitor shatters Francisca's family life.
This traumatized the young girl and at the same time has paved the way for her unique curiosities. Though she clings to her increasingly secretive and quiet father, her loneliness and scarred nature converge years later when her interest to reconnect with the world takes on a dark form.

The movie is in black and white. "The Eyes of my Mother's" black and white treatment may have dulled the gore which may lessen the impact of violence. However, it actually made it even better. The black and white film makes it easier for the squeamish but no way takes away the entire horror effect of the film.
This makes it fair for both. The colorless detail of the blood, guts and innards can be stared at and watched by those with a weak constitution. It also makes it exciting for those who don't care much about gore. It still provides a hair-raising and chilling effect, even enough to make on think even after the movie.
As added by Movie Insider, the "The Eyes of my Mother's" cast are Kika Magalhaes, Will Brill, Clara Wong and Diana Agostini. The movie is directed by Nicolas Pesce. The movie has R rating for disturbing violent content and behavior and brief nudity.
