Darren Aronofsky’s Newest Film mother! Is Supposedly a Horror/Thriller


Darren Aronofsky has no trouble creating films that are deeply unsettling. Pi and Requiem for a Dream both have a specific air of dread about them. Then there is Black Swan, the beautiful, yet frightening film that stunned audiences and grossed nearly $330 million worldwide on a budget of $13 million.

It seems that Aronofsky is keen on creating yet another horrific standout addition to our genre in the form of mother!, which was thought to be a drama but has revealed itself at CinemaCon and to The Wrap to be a horror/thriller, supposedly with a similar feel to Black Swan.

A couple’s relationship is tested when uninvited guests come to their home.

The film is packed with celebrity names, being headlined by Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem, who will star with Ed Harris, Domnhall Gleeson, Kristen Wiig, and Michelle Pfeiffer.

mother! will hit theaters on October 13th, just in time to spook us all for Halloween!
