I'm already a Jessica Chastain fan, and she didn't let me down. I fell in love with her in The Help, then she transformed for The Debt, and again for this movie (I haven't seen ZDT yet.)
The cinematography was way better than most horror flicks. I'm always weary of child actors (it seems that cute trumps talent most of the time,) but both little girls were amazing.
The plot was formulaic horror fodder, but the ending was definitely outside the formula.
Without the acting, this movie would have been a "so-so" for me.

I found the premise to be interesting, but the movie was badly played out. There are a lot of loose ends that don't ever get resolved, and the ending was puzzling. Visually the movie was good, and the acting (especially the little girls) was good, but toward the end the movie gets to be predictable. I don't think they developed the source of the Mama character nearly enough, and I think they didn't use the psychologist character to its potential.

I never thought this would be more scary. i was shaking when i see Mama! on the screen, her presence makes my heart pumping to death. I like the plot of the story, from the beginning to the end , for me its close to reality in your wildest imagination. Well made Horror film , i must say. first rate. Glad to know, it was No. 1 last week. for the first time beginning of the year, a Horror film went up no.1 . simply means, the movie is worth watching because it was really good scary one movie.
