There was a point where the movie should have ended and would have been an alright movie to suggest seeing, but the ending they chose ruined the whole movie. I won't want to see it again when it comes out on bluray

Enough suspense and good plot. People were screaming in the theatre every time the ghost appeared... She was that scary looking. I think a rating of R would have been better, it would have avoided all the kids in there. I totally enjoyed it and will recommend to my friends.

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.

Movie was creepy. My intention was to be creeped out throughout the entire movie. "Mama" was successful. There is room for a sequel, FYI.
Check it out and enjoy!

A fan of Guillermo's work already, and not disappointed with Mama! Nice to see a movie in this genre that has such high production values, yet still delivers the "gotcha" moments that horror fans crave. Great visual effects (some remniscent of the Ring) and cool story. My friend (a seasoned horror movie junkie) literally jumped out of his seat during one scene. We laughed for a while after that. Nice coup to have Jessica Chastain open your movie, right on the heels of her stellar (possibly Oscar winning?) performance in Zero Dark Thirty. I'm scared of Mama! You will be too!
