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."
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.
Fresh: Screenplay contrivances aside, it's as stylish and atmospheric as modern horror gets.
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.
One of the best scary movies I have seen in a while, but I hated the 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.
