Story


Guillermo del Toro presents Mama, a supernatural thriller that tells the haunting tale of two little girls who disappeared into the woods the day that their parents were killed. When they are rescued years later and begin a new life, they find that someone or something still wants to come tuck them in at night.

Five years ago, sisters Victoria and Lilly vanished from their suburban neighborhood without a trace. Since then, their Uncle Lucas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and his girlfriend, Annabel (Jessica Chastain), have been madly searching for them. But when, incredibly, the kids are found alive in a decrepit cabin, the couple wonders if the girls are the only guests they have welcomed into their home.

As Annabel tries to introduce the children to a normal life, she grows convinced of an evil presence in their house. Are the sisters experiencing traumatic stress, or is a ghost coming to visit them? How did the broken girls survive those years all alone? As she answers these disturbing questions, the new mother will find that the whispers she hears at bedtime are coming from the lips of a deadly presence.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it never hits the high notes of Mr. del Toro's own films or successfully weaves between reality and fantasy as it should. It's more like Juan Antonio Bayona's 2007 thriller The Orphanage..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..Mama doesn't live up to their potential, but the film knows how to creep you out..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..Chastain is just left hanging in "Mama," a victim of a bulky plot and in danger of being the lesser of two evils..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
