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.

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.

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

The movie has a great story base and will definitely make you jump throughout. However, I would have really liked to see more of "Mama's" story and a better ending. The ending was extremely disappointing. The actors were great, especially the little girls!

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.
