Mama

Guillermo del Toro presents this supernatural, ghostly gothic horror about two sisters who disappear into the woods the day their mother is murdered. Having survived alone in the wilderness for five years, they are found and taken in, but an evil presence follows them. Co-stars Jessica Chastain.

Since Victoria and Lilly vanished, their Uncle Lucas (Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and his girlfriend, Annabel (Chastain), have been madly searching for them. When the kids are found alive in a decrepit cabin, they're welcomed into Lucas and Annabel's home. As Annabel tries to introduce the children to a normal life, she grows convinced of an evil presence in their house.

A visually polished but overly repetitive chiller.

Haunting with its tragically melancholy story, Mama doesn't treat audiences as naïve fools. I am most impressed.

Fairytale horror that is low on scares and velocity but buoyed by the syrup-thick atmosphere and the creepy stares of the young actresses.

Instead of delivering buckets of guts and gore, this ghost story offers a strong sense of time and place...

The metaphorical mother-child connection becomes a mystical horror show of significant power.

A throwback and a modest delight for people who like a good scare but prefer not to be terrorized or grossed out.

Plenty of horror movies are willing to settle for making audiences jump. Mama is more ambitious by far: It makes sure viewers are emotionally committed even when they aren't clutching their armrests or covering their eyes.
