Guillermo del Toro is a master at concocting dark, scary fairy tales, and Mama is no exception. This video shows the trailer, and even this short snippet of the film will scary those of a weak disposition.
Mama tells the story of two young children who get abandoned in the middle of nowhere. Five years later they’re found, alive and well, but having reverted back to something akin to wild animals.
They’re placed with a family, with one of the girls adapting to their new life better than the other. The problem is they’re not alone, with the titular Mama deciding to come visit.
Mama is a malevolent spirit who isn’t too happy with having her young charges taken away from her. Let the spooky shenanigans begin.
