Director: Andres Muschietti.
Running Time: 100 minutes.
Synopsis: Annabel (Jessica Chastain) and her boyfriend Lucas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) suddenly find themselves caring for his two nieces, who were found living in a cabin in the woods after a five-year disappearance. Practically feral, the girls rely on an imaginary carer they call Mama.
‘Mama, I love you. Mama, I care,’ crooned the Spice Girls. If only we could say the same about the latest horror from the house of Del Toro (mainly so we could get on the posters). Alas, the best we can sing is ‘Mama, I thought you were alright. Mama, I wish you hadn’t gone all CG at the end.’ The rhyming scheme is awkward.
The feature debut of writer/director Andres Muschietti is something of a mixed bag, which is at points inventive, clichéd, truly frightening, unintentionally funny, »
