EYES OF MY MOTHER is a creepy little horror flick from director Nicolas Pesce. The film tells the story of a young Portuguese girl living on a secluded farm in what appears to be the American Midwest who is so afraid of being alone that she’ll do just about anything to keep people around.

Pesce’s film feels like it was partially inspired by Wisconsin serial killer Ed Gein and features terrific black and white visuals and some gruesome gore effects. While the film provides just enough grue and bloodshed, it is also profoundly sad.

Assistant Editor Mike Vanderbilt sat down with Pesce at Fantastic Fest to pick the director’s brain about runtimes, serial killers, and his inspiration for the film.
