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.

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.

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.

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!
