well directed but with stupid ending

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 delivers the scary

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.

Not a Horror Movie!

After seeing this movie, it wasn't exactly what I expected, but pretty darn close. Story line was pretty corny, cute and weird at times. The beginning leaves you clueless, unless I missed something. All in all, it's more of a suspense thriller, in my opinion. It's not a complete waste of time, but if I knew all this before-hand, I wouldn't of spent the money to go see it in theaters.

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.
