I saw the movie trailer for Mama in the theaters and decided I wanted to see it. It looked creepy and I like Guillermo del Toro's movies. I usually back out of any interest in horror movies (or any movie really), but I really wanted to see this one and there was no way Ross was going to let me back out.
Mama is about two girls who survive 5 years in the wilderness. After they are found they go to live with their uncle and strange things start happening.
I like that we got to see Mama. It wasn't like we only caught glimpses of her. You get to see her in all her ugly glory. I thought the story was interesting and the special effects were good. Well, there was one exception: a scene that was so ridiculous that the whole theater (all 8 of us) was laughing. Maybe it was supposed to be terrifying, but a wig scooting across the floor just made us all laugh. The jump-out-and-get-you moments scared Ross, but not me.
I'm glad I went to see the movie. Maybe I'll be open to more horror movies in the future.
