So-So at Best

Very slow start, and a lot of parts that I'm sure were meant to be scary kind of fell flat. It does have great acting by the children, and by Jessica Chastain, playing against type here. There are many spooky parts, and a handful of scarier scenes. The end doesn't wrap anything up and seems like a set up for a sequel.

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.

Did not end the way I expected...wondering if there will be a sequel.

This movie was not super scary, but had you jump in your seat a couple of times. It kept me curious about how it would come together in the end.

Yes, this movie did have suspense and uprising action. However the "Pop-ups" or scary moments were kind of too predictable. Although, this movie had a little story line to it so go see it.

Took my 10, 13 and 14 to it since they begged me after seeing the trailer. They love scary movies. It kept you enthralled! Would recommend to anyone who likes this genre of movies. We all cried a little at the end.
