Mama is not so much scary but really creepy and sad. Not your standard horror movie but if you know Guillermo del toro's work you know to expect a well told story that will tug at your emotions.

alright i walked in the theater having mixed emotions on it because im not a fan of horror movies. I had been told by many it's scary and no it's no it is a great movie. well i walked in and i loved it from the begining to the end. There weren't any scary parts. This movie still made me jump. You will love it. Action filled. It was very full of action like i said a great movie i recomend it to any and everyone

This was absolute garbage. Not scary at all and painfully boring to watch. Not a good movie choice for someone as talented as Jessica Chastain. The little girls in this movie are adorable. Yet it is not at all scary unless this is your 1st scary movie ever. Very disappointing.

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.
