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...

MAMA - A ghost story

By Doug_Hubka
Written February 11, 2016
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.

Not bad of a movie

MAMA was a ok movie, really did not scare me but I do not scare too easily. I felt like at times there was not plot and the director was running out of ideas. The movie seemed to be at times to be just going no where. I am sure it will do well in the box office because people want to be scared but remember it it just a scary movie nothing else.

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.
