This is one of the best scary movies I have seen in years. It is really terrifying to watch and ofeen busy and offers up legitimate heart pounding action. Jessica Chastain has been busy lately and is a great actress. She plays the role as caretaker for the two girls very well. The little girls steal the show as well as the top notch visual effects. I would strongly recommend this movie. Not for children even though PG-13.

There are plenty of good Horror spots and transitions for funny to creepy are done well, but why the director didn't audience test the ending is a mystery to me as a different ending would have garnered an excellent review. As it is there were opportunities to wrap up earlier, or go with a clear sequel tease but he does neither and leaves the audience scratching their heads over poor choice of multiple endings.

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.

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.
