It starts off good. It gives you hope. Makes you excited. And just when you start to think "This is good" it just turns to shit. The excitement disappears and is replaced by boredom and anger. They tricked you. The children was really creepy and you thought mama would be even creepier. Instead she was ridiculous. And the ending was the worst I've seen in a very long time.

This movie had potential. A few good actors, some decent writing, and a slightly intriguing premise. Unfortunately, all of this is wasted on routine scares and a non-menacing completely CG ghost. There is no atmosphere, or buildup of tension. A few scenes that start out creepy are ruined by predictable jump scares. And 'Mama' herself is shown too often, in all her cartoony CG glory. I really wanted to like this one.

Mama lacks quality thrills

How many times we have seen a slow silent scene followed by a sudden thud of sound to scare us? Well Mama is no exception in that. There are nearly four to five scenes of such kind and we know that something is gonna come at the end of the scene. The only difference lies here, is the emotional context that Sinister lacked. Thanks to the director for this. Well, it might sound crazy to get to the basics here, but as a movie it wins over Sinister. Not the definite thrills, nor the best plot here. But the old school thrills are intact and the ghostly imagery is quite good, if not the best.

Jessica Chastain, is taking a role so different after she had to hunt down Osama Bin Laden. She is playing an adoptive mother of two children. Well, this sounds alright. At first she is not willing to, ...

Mama

Two young girls are living for five years alone in a house after their father and mother have "died". Now, their uncle(Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and his girlfriend (Jessica Chastain) want to take the children to them and take care of them. But they are not normal. They are very often saying "mama". A doctor tries to find out what or who "Mama" is...

The movie is written and directed by debutant Andy Muschietti who has made a short film with the same name ┤(MAma) and for his first time as director he has done a damn well job. The direction is almost perfect. As screenwriter he should take some practice, though. The script is very confusing. VERY confusing. Moreover, the dialogues sound weird.
The movie is produced by Guillermo del Toro(Pan's Labyrinth). Why didn't he said something to t...

First 'really' scary film of the year!!!

Ok at one time i used to complain that they couldn't make good horror films anymore, at least not scary anyways. Well that seems to be changing now as anyone who watches 'Mama' will see. Even though Guillermo Del Toro is acting as the producer on this I can see that director Andres Muschietti must've collaborated with him alot on this project cause this film has Del Toro's style all over it and that is a good thing.

Scary films don't seem to bother me anymore as i increase in age, however they used to as i, after watching titles such as 'The Exorcist, The Exorcism Of Emily Rose to name a few used to turn all the lights on whereever i was living as my imagination would begin to soar. As previously mentioned, that rarely happens anymore. Not withstanding however, I still know a scary ...
