All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

Mama (2013)

Starring: Jessica Chastain, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
Director: Andrés Muschietti


Premise:
Two young girls are found in the woods five years after their father killed their mother and took them their. The girls say that "Mama" kept them safe while there. The girls go to live with their uncle and his girlfriend trying to adjust to their new life but "Mama" keeps making appearances.

My Take:
There's a lot to like with the movie as it's not really a typical vengenful ghost story. It's skillfully directed with a lot happening in the background and looks amazing. Plus the kid actors are great as they are transformed from wild creature like state back to some what normal. It's even a little heartbreaking at the end.

Rating: So Good
