  • Chastain digs deep, going beyond the call of scream-queen duty to find the passion that gives horror a pulse. show more

  • Mama itself is above average as a piece of filmmaking, even if its scare quotient is middling or below. That's OK with me. I was content to be impressed by the skill of the first-time director, AndrĂ©s Muschietti; absorbed by the performances and smitten by some startling images. show more

  • An effectively spooky ghost story with Guillermo del Toro's imprimatur (he's executive producer), Mama is every adoptive parent's nightmare: What if the children you bring home start eating moths and toilet paper, and won't come out from under the bed? And when they do, it's only to do something hurtful? show more

    It was a good movie. I liked it and it was way better than some of the other so called \'horror\' movies that are out.

    Wow, who would have thought that this movie, based on a true story, would have left me hypnotized and inspired. A delicious romp of terror, creepiness and love. Highly recommend it...considering I love wasting my hard-earned money!
