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!

Man, this is one CREEPY movie. Loved it. Full of unexpected jolts that had the audience screaming. I'm staying far away from cabins in the woods. Jessica Chastain is quite the chameleon actress.

I saw this movie with my husband a matinee show. I found it interesting, entertaining and quite creepy. You get some good scares without alot of blood and gore.

I liked this movie. Scary and weird. Young girl actresses were awesome.

Movies like Mama are thrill rides. We go to be scared and then laugh, scared and then laugh, scared and then shocked. Of course, there's almost always a little plot left over for a sequel. It's a ride I'd take again. Full Review
What more often sinks Mama is, well, Mama herself. Much like another recent homage to a spookier era of horror, 2011's "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" - which, like Mama, was executive-produced by Guillermo del Toro - Muschietti's film shows its monster too early and too often. Full Review

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, Andrés Muschietti; absorbed by the performances and smitten by some startling images. Full Review

If you're going to have a ghost in your movie, it might be a good thing to present a viable alternative to that ghost. Mama, however, presents a battle between two not very good options before crumbling like a sheet on a string. Full Review
The New York Times
Instead of delivering buckets of guts and gore, this ghost story offers a strong sense of time and place, along with the kind of niceties that don't often figure into horror flicks, notably pictorial beauty, an atmosphere throbbing with dread and actors so good that you don't want anyone to take an ax to them.
