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.

We saw the previews, & thought it looked pretty good. The story didn't make sense & it was just stupid. I was ready to walk out the first few minutes of the movie. Very disappointed.

Horror movies tend to have a consistent formula which makes them predictable even when scary. Mama actually has some very good variations with the film that make it a different kind of film. The use of lighting and sound help to keep the always imminent presence of danger close at hand. The movie had a good storyline and keeps you at the edge of your seat for the most part looking through your fingers. Overtly terrifying? No. A subtle way that keeps your constantly creeped out and on edge? Definitely. This was a horror movie I felt good paying for to see in the theaters. I recommend it to any fan to take a look.

Enough suspense and good plot. People were screaming in the theatre every time the ghost appeared... She was that scary looking. I think a rating of R would have been better, it would have avoided all the kids in there. I totally enjoyed it and will recommend to my friends.
