About the Movie

Guillermo del Toro, the Academy Award®-nominated writer of Pan’s Labyrinth, presents this supernatural thriller that tells the haunting tale of two little girls who disappeared into the woods the day that their parents were killed. When the young sisters are found alive in a decrepit cabin, their uncle (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Game of Thrones) and his girlfriend (Oscar® nominee Jessica Chastain, Zero Dark Thirty) take them in. As they try to introduce the children to a normal life, Annabel (Chastain) begins to wonder if the traumatized girls are the only guests they have welcomed into their home.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The metaphorical mother-child connection becomes a mystical horror show of significant power. Sadly it comes too late to save "Mama." – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Jan 18, 2013

Fresh: Chastain has an excellent time. And so did I, for most of the movie: It's much more suspenseful than violent, being careful not to allow us to figure out Mama too quickly. – Kyle Smith, New York Post, Jan 18, 2013

Fresh: Screenplay contrivances aside, it's as stylish and atmospheric as modern horror gets. – Drew Hunt, Chicago Reader, Jan 25, 2013

Fresh: There's something eerily effective about juxtaposing childhood innocence with the violent, the supernatural, the deranged. Evil shines all the more brightly when held up against the sweet promise of youth. – Tom Long, Detroit News, Jan 18, 2013

One of the best scary movies I have seen in a while, but I hated the ending!

Sad ending.....

Mama keeps you watching, with unexpected jumps and freaky graphics. The end makes you sad ... Definitely a twist you'd never expect.

It was ok

… until the end at which point I rolled my eyes and wanted a refund.
