"Mama" (2013) starring: Jessica Chastain, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Megan Charpentier is a great new horror film from producer Guillermo del Toro.
After shooting their mother, their father takes his two young daughters, Victoria & Lilly, and crashes the car in the mountains. He finds a deserted house in the woods and takes them there. In his distraught state he intends to shoot them and then himself but something in the house saves the girls.
"Mama" is a fantastic new horror movie filled with atmosphere, scares and suspense rather than gore. Throughout the movie we catch glimpses of the ethereal black figure with floating hair as she awkwardly jerks / floats through the house. When we finally get a good look at her, she is a scary looking creature that is sure to scare and to remain lodged in your memory. Jessica Chastain does a wonderful job portraying Annabel who never wanted children and would rather be in her rock band. After initially being creeped out by the little Lilly and the barely glimpsed Mama, Annabel eventually becomes the girls' greatest protector.
Watch this film for a scary and unique take on a ghost story that you won't soon forget!
