The movie was alright!! It wasn't like Insidious scary but suspenseful none the less! It takes a lot for me to get scared but definitely a recommendation to see! I jumped a few times & then laughed a few times.. so it's a mixture... I'd give it 3 out of 5 Stars...

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.

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.

A well written movie with an interesting story that is well directed . Moves along and doesn't throw in meaningless blood, gore or sex. Not as scary as I first thought, then we are all used to things popping out at us by now. Worth the money & time.
