I was force to see this by my friend. I chose Identity Theft last week and he chose Mama this week. I was dreading seeing this...until I saw "Guillermo del Toro" as executive producer in the opening credits. Guillermo del Toro name has gravitas with movies such as Pan's Labyrinth, the Hellboy movies, and Blade 2. I was right as this was actually a very enjoyable horror movie. It scared and creeped me out more than any horror movie since I saw Halloween as a child in the 90s. It wouldn't really be scary if you saw it a second time, but the ending is what convinced me this was a good movie. It was typical with what I expect from a movie that is heavily influenced by del Toro's involvement. Anyone who has seen Pan's Labyrinth will understand. I heavily recommend this movie, especially while it is still in theaters.

Go see Mama. The little girls are amazing especially the one that plays Lilly. This kept me on the edge throughout and the ending...well, it illicited some feelings/emotions I was not expecting. Very good movie...don't wait for the DVD.

Moody, well written and acted, good, if somewhat over the top ending, broke some clichés despite a couple of reviewers here. I mean, come on, it's del toro!

I was so excited for this movie ever since I saw the trailer. I am a big fan of Guillermo del Toro's work, specially The Orphanage, but Mama did not at all live up to expectations. The beginning started off exciting but as the movie progressed it was cheesy with laughable scares. Literally people in the theater laughed at every "scary" part of the movie. It has every horror movie cliché you can imagine: ghost int he closet, going to the haunted house at night, ect. The ending was completely ridiculous and absolutely comical. Wouldn't even wait to watch this as a rental. Good idea but extremely poorly executed.

I wasn't expecting this movie to be a good movie due to the fact it was only PG-13, and most scary movies rated PG-13 are not the best. This movie has defiantly changed my mind. It was a very good movie their is one part I'm confused on which is the beginning I felt that they should have explained the beginning a little bit more.
