Goodnight Darling- Short Film Genre: Horror
Two sisters wonder if their mother’s strange behavior is a response to a recent family loss, or if something more sinister is at work… “Goodnight Darling” is a horror film about the moment in childhood when we discover our parents aren’t the people we grew up thinking they were.
Is mother different?
“Goodnight Darling” is based on a deep fear I developed in my youth when my parents would come home from a night out. As they came into my room to say good night, I often imagined that it was two imposters disguised as them. I pictured someone wearing a mask, or a second skin, in order to take over their lives… and mine. It was terrifying. I later realized that it represented an unspoken and deeper fear that many children face – that my parents weren’t the perfect people I grew up thinking they were.
