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.

This was absolute garbage. Not scary at all and painfully boring to watch. Not a good movie choice for someone as talented as Jessica Chastain. The little girls in this movie are adorable. Yet it is not at all scary unless this is your 1st scary movie ever. Very disappointing.

After seeing this movie, it wasn't exactly what I expected, but pretty darn close. Story line was pretty corny, cute and weird at times. The beginning leaves you clueless, unless I missed something. All in all, it's more of a suspense thriller, in my opinion. It's not a complete waste of time, but if I knew all this before-hand, I wouldn't of spent the money to go see it in theaters.

Mama is not so much scary but really creepy and sad. Not your standard horror movie but if you know Guillermo del toro's work you know to expect a well told story that will tug at your emotions.

I love horror movies and this is just not one of my favorite. i don't know if its the way how it ends or just the fact that it wasn't scary enough for me but this is still one that i would recommend to people. i just can take more scary scenes than most people.
