It made you jump and scream. I cried a little and when I left the movie theater I was a little out of breath. The ending was not to my liking, but very unexpected.

Having seen some of Del Toro's other films of a similar genre I expected something worth while and decently interesting. This movie surpassed anything I could of expected. From the beginning to end this movie had me. Rarely am I gripping my seat in the first two minutes the way I was for this. I did not come up for air till the credits rolled. There were a couple spots where a couple characters made some obviously dumb choices. But it did not take away from the movie really. Movie is intense and scary. Well done and I really like the musical score.

A fan of Guillermo's work already, and not disappointed with Mama! Nice to see a movie in this genre that has such high production values, yet still delivers the "gotcha" moments that horror fans crave. Great visual effects (some remniscent of the Ring) and cool story. My friend (a seasoned horror movie junkie) literally jumped out of his seat during one scene. We laughed for a while after that. Nice coup to have Jessica Chastain open your movie, right on the heels of her stellar (possibly Oscar winning?) performance in Zero Dark Thirty. I'm scared of Mama! You will be too!

I expected it not to be scary because it is rated PG-13. I still have not seen a horror movie that I would say you MUST GO! see. Anywho, some parts of the movie was not needed and it seemed kind of rushed, but then that can be just me

Movie was good. It had scarey moments where the entire audience was chattering at the same time.. Made it funny to see others react at the same time. Ending was unpredictable but boring..
