Movie Mention: Mama

I loved reading about all of your writing spaces on my last post. It’s interesting to see our similarities and differences as readers and writers, and I’ll be sure to find other aspects of our lives we can share soon. But, today, I wanted to suggest a movie to see this weekend!

1-Mama-PosterLast night, I saw Guillermo del Toro‘s new horror movie, Mama.

After five years, Lucas’ nieces, Victoria and Lilly, are found abandoned in the woods, and no one can understand how two little girls survived the harsh elements. Hoping to give them a home again, Lucas and his girlfriend, Annabel, take in the disturbed children–but the girls are more troubled than they could image, and it wasn’t the forest that changed them.

Not to toot my own horn (I’m sure you all are the same, as avid writers and readers seem to have a knack for it), but I’m normally really good at guessing plots, and I didn’t see the ending coming.

As always, the producer of Pan’s Labyrinth and Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark delicately creates a twisted backstory for a complete and unique horror experience. If you’re looking for a scary movie to go see with friends, go out to the movies and watch this flick. You won’t be disappointed.

Check out trailer via IMDb here.

  1. Yeah, that ending was definitely not your typical Hollywood horror film ending. Funny how some people thought it was a bad ending. I guess people always complaining about how there’s never anything original in horror films would balk at something very original.

  2. l didn’t see the end coming either and loved the look of it. For once the style augmented the substance. Check my review. Cheers on a 40 below zero morning!

  3. You should tell me the ending. Now, I’ve gotta know LOL. I love horror movies, but I’m too chicken to watch them on the big screen. I wait ’til the DVDs come out.

    Keep smiling,

    1. I would over email but not on the website (I’d hate to accidentally spoil it for someone).
      It’s really good 😀 I normally wait for DVD too because movies are so expensive, and I don’t have a lot of free time to go to the theaters.
