Poster for You Are Not My Mother

In this Irish horror film, Char’s mother Angela inexplicably disappears one day, her car abandoned. When she returns home without explanation, it becomes clear that something is very different about Angela. She might look and sound the same, but her behaviour has become increasingly frightening. As Halloween night looms, Char realises that she is the only one who can save her, even if it means potentially losing her forever.

The final sequences are the only "stock" moments... But the rest is so effective and emotional, a dedicated portrait of trauma passed down through generations, it doesn't matter.

What we actually get to see throughout... is your run-of-the-mill procession of generically moody fear tactics, doled out in such rhythmic fashion that they barely raise a pulse.

While Dolan may not be able to balance all the subplots in an organic way, the main narrative is gripping as hell.
