Soon to be released in UK cinemas, indie horror flick, The Eyes of My Mother, is the gross-out creep-fest you’ve been craving.

The 74-minute film is beautifully shot too (if with unsettling edge) – in crisp black and white by its Director (and Writer) Nicolas Pesce. The film marks his directorial debut.

Lead actress Kika Magalhaes does a phenomenal job in her understated portrayal of Francisca, a young woman with some gory proclivities living on an isolated farm, and carries the plot with an eerily serene presence.

I was gripped throughout my preview screening of Eyes, though its slightly unsatisfactory ending left me wanting – but also wanting for more. It’s definitely worth a watch, especially for fans of the macabre and moviegoers interested in a splatter film with a thought out storyline and a sense of actual aesthetic. But be warned there is a ton of gore.

The Eyes of My Mother will be released in UK cinemas on 24 March 2017. Find out more at
