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!

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...

Totally tired premise of ghostlike wraith who can't rest in peace until she's allowed to mother her dead infant. Lots of dark rooms, mild shocks which are almost laughable and lackluster performances by Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain and Nicolaj Coster-Wadau(sic). Skip it unless you watch it maybe, on DVD next Halloween.

This horror movie had us jumping in our seats and kept us in suspense throughout. We enjoyed the movie from start to finish. Not one for the youngsters as it will probably give them bad dreams. The cinematography was great. This movie shows that it does not take an "A" list of actors to be cast in a movie to make it a good one.

You have to go see this for yourself. Don't listen to the negative criticism, keep an open mind.
This movie was great. I think the directing, the story line, the acting, and the plot are excellent.
If this were just a book I came across I would definitely want to see it in a movie. That having been said, they picked the perfect cast. I hope Jessica Chastain gets and Oscar for this, as she was better in this than in Zero Dark Thirty, which came out in theaters the same time as mama.
It does not have to be a bloody gruesome movie to be intelligent and scary. I was so freaked a couple times I jumped in my seat. I give it 10 of 10.
