  • Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Mama has a really crazy story, having the so called "entity" feel much more realistic and physical-ish. The Mama entity is so chilling to see, loved every aspect, it's so interesting to see that the kids are so natural and relaxed around it. Couldn't ask for a better cast; I love Jessica Chastain, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau characters they have great chemistry. This cinematographer, Antonio Riestra...

  • Summary: It starts off good. It gives you hope. Makes you excited. And just when you start to think "This is good" it just turns to shit. The excitement disappears and is replaced by boredom and anger. They tricked you. The children was really creepy and you thought mama would be even creepier. Instead she was ridiculous. And the ending was the worst I've seen in a very long time.

Mama lacks quality thrills

  • Excerpt: How many times we have seen a slow silent scene followed by a sudden thud of sound to scare us? Well Mama is no exception in that. There are nearly four to five scenes of such kind and we know that something is gonna come at the end of the scene. The only difference lies here, is the emotional context that Sinister lacked. Thanks to the director for this. Well, it might sound crazy to get to the basics here, but as a movie it wins over Sinister.

  • Summary: This movie had potential. A few good actors, some decent writing, and a slightly intriguing premise. Unfortunately, all of this is wasted on routine scares and a non-menacing completely CG ghost. There is no atmosphere, or buildup of tension. A few scenes that start out creepy are ruined by predictable jump scares. And 'Mama' herself is shown too often, in all her cartoony CG glory. I really wanted to like this one.

  • Summary: Let me first just get this out of the way, Mama isn't a scary movie. Despite its lack of any sort of fear it's still an enjoyable movie thanks to it's well written plot. It's filled with mystery and likable characters. As you learn more details about the plot, and what exactly "Mama" is, you begin to see a bitter-sweet side of the story. It's actually kind of a sad tale.

  • Summary: I have to admit I was hoping for more out of this. Compared to other recent horror films I've seen (Sinister, even Dark Skies) I don't think the atmosphere was nearly as good - nor was I impressed by "Mama" herself. Overall, it's a decent horror film, but just didn't grab me like I thought it would.

  • Summary: Interesting story and good acting. This movie was well done, but it's not at all scary. Like, at all. They made Mama sort of goofy looking, which made me laugh a couple times. The ending is cool.. I'd watch it again, but wouldn't go out of my way to see it.

  • Summary: basically a horror movie with more kids who see things etc but this time its aliens , its like a thousand other movies everyone seems to be the same story.. the kid see's something acts odd etc. things go bump in the night but nothing really happens. most of it is just silly really. the ending of this movie is awful.
