I'm already a Jessica Chastain fan, and she didn't let me down. I fell in love with her in The Help, then she transformed for The Debt, and again for this movie (I haven't seen ZDT yet.)
The cinematography was way better than most horror flicks. I'm always weary of child actors (it seems that cute trumps talent most of the time,) but both little girls were amazing.
The plot was formulaic horror fodder, but the ending was definitely outside the formula.
Without the acting, this movie would have been a "so-so" for me.

Please run away as fast as you can from this movie! This is the most stupid movie next to "Drag Me to Hell" and even that movie was better than "MaMa". I wouldn't even waste my money to rent the dvd when it comes out, go spend a dollar and change when it comes out on Redbox, that way you won't feel cheated. Story line was ridic, didn't make sense in the beginning and it sure didn't make much sense at the end. This is not even a scary movies for the children, my 7 year old grandson was with me and he said it was dumb. Don't go see it unless all the other movies are filled up and even then don't go. Sorry.

I just went to see the movie last night. I was slightly disappointed,I thought it was going to be more drama, more nail biting scariness, but it was not. It had a few jumps here and there, but that was it. It reminds me so much of the Grudge with similarities from the Ring as well. If I had to grade this movie I would rate it as a B- or C+.

There was a point where the movie should have ended and would have been an alright movie to suggest seeing, but the ending they chose ruined the whole movie. I won't want to see it again when it comes out on bluray
