Mama Delivers

Horror movies rely on scaring movie goers, yet some leave out the great storyline and acting. Mama delivers what a good horror needs to entertain and keep the audience hooked. Jessica Chastain (Annabel), who plays a woman not wanting children, and Nicolaj Coster-Waldau (Lucas/Jeffrey) are challenged with raising his abandoned nieces, Victoria and Lily. Mama doesn't shy away from letting you see glimpses and full shots of "Mama" flying at you. As the movie unfolds, the sins of the past are unleashed on the unfortunate souls in the present. Ultimately, building to who and what Mama is willing to kill for...

Met My Expectations

I wasn't expecting a too scary of a horror movie because it was rated PG-13, but it got some jumps out of me. Lots of pop outs. Actors were great.

Creepy movie! I loved the more supernatural aspect of this movie, instead of the blood and gore of most horror movies. I caught myself screaming with the rest of the theater during those surprise moments that make you jump! Loved it! It really makes ya think!

Too many loose ends

Liked the background, graphics. Movie did have a lot of down time in my opinion. It was suspensful at times, but not overbearing as far as over the top gore. My biggest complaint was they left too many loose ends that needed addressed. All in all it was an ok watch, it won't win any acadamy awards, but it isn't another wasteful horror flick...Worth a look...

Mama

This is a horror movie that is produced by Guillermo del Toro and you can tell his influence . Two little girls are stranded in the woods for five years [they were 1 & 3 years old , so they are now 6 & 8] . Nikolaj plays their uncle , who adopts them . Jessica is his live-in girlfriend that is in a rock band . Megan plays the 8 year old girl and after their ordeal , they have to meet with a psychiatrist , Daniel . Everyone wants to know how the girls survived on their own in the woods and they say that Mama fed & protected them [since no one else was on the premises when they were found , Daniel assumes that Mama is an imaginary friend] . Little does he know . The story is good , their are scary images [this is Not for young kids {or maybe even some adults} because in the opening scenes , a man points a gun at a little girl's head , intending to kill her] and there are lots of 'jump scares' but there seems to be something missing [the ending was kind of weird] .
