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.

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.

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.

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!
