Following months of secrecy surrounding director Darren Aronofsky’s latest project, Mother, the first look is finally here — and it’s safe to say this Jennifer Lawrence-fronted film is going to leave audiences feeling decidedly unsettled.
Remember that scene in the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory when Willy takes the golden ticket holders through that trippy boat tunnel with images of flies and dead chickens and other horrifying things flashing? It’s kinda like that.
In other words, a total mind-fuck.
The short clip for the psychological horror features Lawrence walking around a large, apparently empty old house. Eerie snippets of conversations from the movie play, coming to an intense peak with what sounds like Lawrence’s character screaming, “Murderer!”
The screen then cuts to black as another voice says, “God help you,” and visuals blur by in a disturbing montage: a man engulfed in flames, a dying locust, Michelle Pfeiffer being seduced and someone being clubbed over the head. So, yeah, maybe plan on not sleeping after you watch it.
