Interesting idea, badly implemented

By dwkellen

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.

My Son and I went and saw this together and we really liked it! At one point I realized I was sitting forward in my seat, when I jumped back hard against the back of my seat. We didn't see that ending coming! Good stuff

well directed but with stupid ending

There are plenty of good Horror spots and transitions for funny to creepy are done well, but why the director didn't audience test the ending is a mystery to me as a different ending would have garnered an excellent review. As it is there were opportunities to wrap up earlier, or go with a clear sequel tease but he does neither and leaves the audience scratching their heads over poor choice of multiple endings.

MAMA - A ghost story

By Doug_Hubka

A well written movie with an interesting story that is well directed . Moves along and doesn't throw in meaningless blood, gore or sex. Not as scary as I first thought, then we are all used to things popping out at us by now. Worth the money & time.

Had no point

This movie had its scare moments but it had no point. The plot was horrible. I didn't like the movie at all. I did jump because that freaking mama would just pop out of nowhere.
