The Sundance Film Festival has been the launching pad for more than a few hits, but it’s not often an indie premiere leaves the audience’s skin crawling. At least not until The Eyes of My Mother opened this year.
Remember that old story about theaters back in the day offering vomit bags on the way in to see The Exorcist? There have always been those rare horror movies that built a legend around causing such physical reactions. And now a new horror flick that opened at Sundance is staking out its own claim in the gross-out classics category.
