Go see Mama. The little girls are amazing especially the one that plays Lilly. This kept me on the edge throughout and the ending...well, it illicited some feelings/emotions I was not expecting. Very good movie...don't wait for the DVD.

Good film overall, hated the ending

The film overall was everything I like in a scary movie, suspense, emotion, and lack of gore. I tend to favor movies that are heavier into scaring you by building up suspense and having something jump out when you least suspect it. Versus having a ton of unnecessary gore. What I didn't like was the ending. I felt like it wasn't fully thought through.

Moody, well written and acted, good, if somewhat over the top ending, broke some clichés despite a couple of reviewers here. I mean, come on, it's del toro!

cliché, corny, laughable - terrible movie

I was so excited for this movie ever since I saw the trailer. I am a big fan of Guillermo del Toro's work, specially The Orphanage, but Mama did not at all live up to expectations. The beginning started off exciting but as the movie progressed it was cheesy with laughable scares. Literally people in the theater laughed at every "scary" part of the movie. It has every horror movie cliché you can imagine: ghost int he closet, going to the haunted house at night, ect. The ending was completely ridiculous and absolutely comical. Wouldn't even wait to watch this as a rental. Good idea but extremely poorly executed.

I wasn't expecting this movie to be a good movie due to the fact it was only PG-13, and most scary movies rated PG-13 are not the best. This movie has defiantly changed my mind. It was a very good movie their is one part I'm confused on which is the beginning I felt that they should have explained the beginning a little bit more.
