Excerpt: "Daddy,look! There's a woman outside the window.And she's not touching the floor." "Mama" has all the elements to make it a great, creepy horror movie. It starts very strong with a somewhat hazy situation with a desperate father who killed his wife and abducts his children to an...
Summary: 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: Two young girls are living for five years alone in a house after their father and mother have "died". Now, their uncle(Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and his girlfriend (Jessica Chastain) want to take the children to them and take care of them. But they are not normal. They are very often saying "mama".
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.
