Mama [Blu-ray/DVD] [Includes Digital Copy; UltraViolet]
Region 1 USA/CA (
A loving couple learn that their two adopted nieces have brought a dark secret into their home in this foreboding domestic thriller from executive producer Guillermo del Toro (PAN'S LABYRINTH), and director Andy Muschietti. Victoria and Lilly were just little girls when their father murdered their mother. In the aftermath of that tragedy, both girls disappeared without a trace. Desperate, their Uncle Lucas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and his girlfriend Annabel (Jessica Chastain) searched everywhere for the missing girls. Five years later, Victoria and Lilly are both found living in a derelict cabin deep in the woods. Incredibly, they've managed to survive on their own, though years of isolation have left them both in a feral state, and unable to communicate. Without hesitation, Lucas and Annabel welcome the two frightened girls into their home, and work hard to make them feel comfortable. But when a series of ominous events lead Lucas and Annabel to suspect that Victoria and Lilly share ties to an evil beyond human comprehension, the couple must discern whether the two young girls are merely dealing with the emotional aftershocks of a life-altering tragedy, or have attracted a force that could destroy their family all over again.
Jessica Chastain, Nikolaj Waldau, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Megan Charpentier, Isabelle Nelisse, Daniel Kash, Javier Botet
"It invites you to care about what's scaring you." -- Grade: B
"Chastain digs deep, going beyond the call of scream-queen duty to find the passion that gives horror a pulse."
"If youre a movie fan, you know that horror doesnt get much better than this, and when it comes to contemporary offerings it rarely gets more enjoyable than MAMA."
New York Times
"MAMA announces the arrival of a director who works unusually well with actors...and who creates highly charged environments, effective sound designs and powerful fantasy sequences."
Wall Street Journal
"Chastain gets to play an arc, not an archetype, and Mama becomes an honest-to-god film instead of a quickie horror cash-in..."
3 stars out of 4 -- "MAMA succeeds in scaring the wits out of us and leaving some lingering, deeply creepy images..."
"[T]he conflicts contribute to the films tense, complicated family dynamic, building a rich emotional tangle that makes all the startles much more meaningful." -- Grade: B+
"[T]here are chilling images and precision stings."
