Synopsis


Mama
A loving couple learn that their two adopted nieces have brought a dark secret into their home in this foreboding domestic thriller from executive producer Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth), and director Andy Muschietti. Victoria and Lilly were just little girls when their father murdered their mother. In the aftermath of that tragedy, both girls disappeared without a trace. Desperate, their Uncle Lucas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and his girlfriend Annabel (Jessica Chastain) searched everywhere for the missing girls. Five years later, Victoria and Lilly are both found living in a derelict cabin deep in the woods. Incredibly, they've managed to survive on their own, though years of isolation have left them both in a feral state, and unable to communicate. Without hesitation, Lucas and Annabel welcome the two frightened girls into their home, and work hard to make them feel comfortable. But when a series of ominous events lead Lucas and Annabel to suspect that Victoria and Lilly share ties to an evil beyond human comprehension, the couple must discern whether the two young girls are merely dealing with the emotional aftershocks of a life-altering tragedy, or have attracted a force that could destroy their family all over again. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    A dark kind of fairy tale revolving around two girls. Similar tone and feel as the orphanage, the woman in black, etc. Really solid story in a well played, well shot film. Don't go in expecting the scariest, goriest, horror film.. and you'll enjoy it for exactly what it is. A fun, dark, jumpy movie that's well executed, and will keep you guessing til the end.

    A moody thriller

    The creepy atmosphere is the main appeal of this film, which looks and sounds fine on Blu-ray. Nice extras, including the short film that generated the project. Commentary not bad, though I wish Del Toro had done second one. If slasher-type horror is your thing, you may want to skip this classier take on the genre.

    A somewhat more original ghost story concept

    I may not have ever watched this movie had Guillermo del Toro not slapped his name on it as a producer. While the plot had a bit of originality, a couple girls being raised by a ghost, it felt like this concept was at the same time just too absurd. The CGI often looked very much like CGI and gave the movie a cheap feel. Worth a rental.

    PG13 horror can be fantastic sometimes, like MAMA

    MAMA is a fun and creepy little horror film that's not high on the gore. It's PG-13, which horror fans can tend to stay away from, but this one is among the best! The CGI actually kinda works, since the monster is all bendy and twisty. The characters were original and the whole concept felt fresh.

    Overall this movie isn't really scary but it does have some creepy scenes. Not the best Guillermo Del Toro produced horror film, that distinction belongs to the Orphanage, but this is a perfectly acceptable horror movie that doesn't fall into the dredge that is normally considered horror nowadays.

    I liked the plot and the two girls in it were adorable actresses! Didn't plan on staying up so late to watch it but couldn't put it on pause. I love horror and gore. Of course this had no gore but it still made me jump once and that rarely ever happens. Don't mess with mama!

    This was not your average horror movie. There was a little more suspense. The plot was well written, but it did drag in some places, but overall, I was impressed with the movie as a whole. It was a little different from the average horror movies of today.
