I was jumping out of my seat through the whole movie!! I normally do not go see scary movies in the theater but my husband wanted to see it. It was good and a great story. The girls in the movie were great actors!!

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.

25 out of 100 Behold the most joyless, unscary, predictable, poorly acted, under developed horror film that should have just been changed into a TV feature film. The movie was just not enjoyable, the ending was just weird. Overall, Mama is the the worst movie contender of this year, so don't waste your time watching this. Just plain flat-out disappointment.

I found the premise to be interesting, but the movie was badly played out. There are a lot of loose ends that don't ever get resolved, and the ending was puzzling. Visually the movie was good, and the acting (especially the little girls) was good, but toward the end the movie gets to be predictable. I don't think they developed the source of the Mama character nearly enough, and I think they didn't use the psychologist character to its potential.
