Keep Clenched

Horror movies tend to have a consistent formula which makes them predictable even when scary. Mama actually has some very good variations with the film that make it a different kind of film. The use of lighting and sound help to keep the always imminent presence of danger close at hand. The movie had a good storyline and keeps you at the edge of your seat for the most part looking through your fingers. Overtly terrifying? No. A subtle way that keeps your constantly creeped out and on edge? Definitely. This was a horror movie I felt good paying for to see in the theaters. I recommend it to any fan to take a look.

Have you seen Mama??

The movie was alright!! It wasn't like Insidious scary but suspenseful none the less! It takes a lot for me to get scared but definitely a recommendation to see! I jumped a few times & then laughed a few times.. so it's a mixture... I'd give it 3 out of 5 Stars...

I did not bring my 14 years old son, thinking that it was a really strong movie, due o all the promotions given.... But it was less way less that I expect.... A big NO for Mama!!!!

Interesting idea, badly implemented

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.

Good not Great

I am HUGE fan of Guillermo del Toro movies. This move was good; but, I expected more in terms of plot from del Toro. The cinematography was good, the acting was well done and the directing was great. The story - not so much.
