Good night mom, the ending is explained

Elias and Lucas fear that their mother is a bandaged con artist. She has trouble remembering things she thinks she should know and is adamant they don’t venture into the barn, which is apparently the source of a sinister secret.

Her eye color has changed and she is easily aggressive as the boys believe their real mother is being held hostage in the barn.

When the situation becomes more tense, they decide to tie her up. They take off her bandages and she looks like their mother, but they are not convinced.

However, Elias unties her and feels that Lukas may have a powerful control over him, and the discovery of the colored contact lenses leads him to feel that Lukas has been hiding the truth.

The big reveal comes when we learn that Lukas hasn’t actually been by Elias’ side all along. The mother takes her son to the barn and it is revealed that he actually killed his brother by shooting him with a pistol.

A heartbreaking conclusion

The idea of ​​Lukas was simply a coping mechanism as he tried to process what he had done. His mother’s unusual behavior can be explained by grief and loss. Her change suddenly starts to make total sense.

Elias, on the other hand, is hesitant to confront the reality of what happened and pushes his mother off the platform in the barn and flees the scene after setting her on fire.

Watching from a distance, Elias encounters hallucinations of his mother and brother, which soothe and comfort him. He feels guilty for the deaths of both family members, but basically retreats into fantasy to mask his guilt.

“A Dark, Twisted Fantasy”

The director recently opened up about the differences between the original and the remake during an interview with Slash Film:

“Our film is much more about one boy and his perception of the world, and it’s shot in such a way that we see the world through his eyes. And it all came from the same idea that we want to see the movie play out in Elias’ mind for the first 80% of the movie. And he imagines this situation as a dark, twisted fantasy.”

He added: “Then it’s only when he’s pushed out of that story that he sees the reality is potentially even scarier.”

Goodnight Mommy streams exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.
