Guillermo del Toro is no stranger to tales of abandoned children. His fascination with lonely young souls is partially why Andy Muschietti's haunting short film, "Mama," caught his attention. The story of two young girls trapped in the obsessive grip of a dangerous ghost, whom they call Mama, resonated with del Toro so much he decided to help Muschietti and his sister/producing partner Barbara develop it into a feature-length film.
The result of the collaboration is "Mama," a genuinely creepy psychological thriller starring Golden-Globe winner Jessica Chastain ("Zero Dark Thirty") and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau ("Game of Thrones"). The film follows two young girls (Megan Charpentier and Isabelle Nélisse) who are left to fend for themselves alone in a creepy cabin in the woods after their parents die. Their uncle, played by Coster-Waldau, frantically searches for them and eventually finds them five years later.
