Mama (2013) 
Mama lacks quality thrills
2/4 stars

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, but later she develops an emotional bond with the children. Thatís cool. Mama does not make you scream nor make you sit at the edge of the seats, it moves slowly and the narrative takes time to understand it. Once it gets to the peaks, Mama ends with a hardly digestible note. Maturity, sacrifice and lack of spine tingling moments, concludes Mama to a hardly interesting scary movie. But the whole lot of the scary elements missed to make a mark by many inches.
