Watch a Creepy Scene From the New Film The Eyes of My Mother

The Eyes of My Mother opens in theaters this weekend, and while, yes, it is a horror film, Nicolas Pesce’s debut feature is also a story about the relationships of its troubled protagonist, Francisca. Pesce wrote and directed the film, and through an exploration of profound loneliness he builds a disturbing, unexpected villain in the form of the pretty, dainty Francisca, a character whose only desire is human connection. To say anymore would spoil the surprising journey of the film, but in the scene above, uncomfortably titled “Dance Show,” you can get a long look at how Francisca spends her quiet nights at home with Dad. Francisca needs a friend, but you really don’t want it to be you. You can read Vulture’s review of the film here.
