Waxwork Records Bringing Ariel Loh’s The Eyes of My Mother Score to Vinyl


The incredible folks over at Waxwork Records have just revealed that they are going to be releasing Ariel Loh’s The Eyes of My Mother (review) soundtrack on vinyl, although no release date was given.

Waxwork Records has released such titles as The Thing, The Howling, Trick ‘r Treat, Mad Monster Party, Salem’s Lot, From Beyond, Altered States, Friday the 13th, Krampus, and more. I own several of their records and they are incredible in terms of quality and packaging. Therefore, I can say with 100% certainty that The Eyes of My Mother will be yet another stellar release from the boutique label. We’ll keep you in the loop about this release!

In their secluded farmhouse, a mother, formerly a surgeon in Portugal, teaches her daughter, Francisca, to understand anatomy and be unfazed by death. One afternoon, a mysterious visitor horrifyingly shatters the idyll of Francisca’s family life, deeply traumatizing the young girl, but also awakening some unique curiosities. Though she clings to her increasingly reticent father, Francisca’s loneliness and scarred nature converge years later when her longing to connect with the world around her takes on a distinctly dark form. Shot in crisp black and white, the haunting, and at times disturbing, visual compositions of THE EYES OF MY MOTHER evoke its protagonist’s isolation and illuminate her deeply unbalanced worldview. Genre-inflected, but so strikingly unique as to defy categorization, writer/director Nicolas Pesce’s assured feature debut allows us only an elliptical presence in Francisca’s world, guiding our imaginations to follow her into peculiar, secret places.
