Description

Two young sisters are haunted by the ghost of their dead mother in this paranormal horror from director Andrés Muschietti. On the day after their parents are killed, Victoria (Megan Charpentier) and Lilly (Isabelle Nélisse) disappear from their suburban home without a trace. Five years later, a man out walking in the woods discovers the now feral girls living in a rundown shack.

Synopsis
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.

A.V. Club
"[T]he conflicts contribute to the film’s tense, complicated family dynamic, building a rich emotional tangle that makes all the startles much more meaningful." -- Grade: B+
Tasha Robinson (17 Jan 2013, )
Chicago Sun-Times
3 stars out of 4 -- "MAMA succeeds in scaring the wits out of us and leaving some lingering, deeply creepy images..."
Richard Roeper (16 Jan 2013, )
Entertainment Weekly
"It invites you to care about what's scaring you." -- Grade: B
Owen Gleiberman (18 Jan 2013, )
Movieline
"Chastain gets to play an arc, not an archetype, and Mama becomes an honest-to-god film instead of a quickie horror cash-in..."
Amy Nicholson (18 Jan 2013, )
New York Times
"If you’re a movie fan, you know that horror doesn’t get much better than this, and when it comes to contemporary offerings it rarely gets more enjoyable than MAMA."
Manohla Dargis (18 Jan 2013, )
Rolling Stone
"Chastain digs deep, going beyond the call of scream-queen duty to find the passion that gives horror a pulse."
Peter Travers (31 Jan 2013, )
Total Film
"[T]here are chilling images and precision stings."
Ken McIntyre (4 Feb 2013, )
Wall Street Journal
"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."
(17 Jan 2013, )
