Four clips have been revealed from director Andres Muschietti’s Mama, and each one is more creepy than the next. The film is produced by Guillermo del Toro, and is based on Muschietti’s short film of the same name.
The clips each appear to follow the more conventional rules of horror with a cool jump scare, but then slowly build into something much more unsettling. The atmosphere on display here is tense and very frightening, and the visuals are incredibly unsettling. The two little girls look very spooky indeed, and I am still in shock at Jessica Chastain’s stunning transformation into a Goth chick Mother! Check out all four clips below.
Directed by Andres Muschietti, executive producer by Guillermo del Toro and starring Jessica Chastain, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Megan Charpentier and Daniel Kash, Mama will arrive in UK cinemas on 22nd February 2013.
Guillermo del Toro presents ‘Mama,’ a supernatural thriller that tells the haunting tale of two little girls who disappeared into the woods the day that their mother was murdered. When they are rescued years later and begin a new life, they find that someone or something still wants to come tuck them in at night.
The day their father killed their mother, sisters Victoria and Lilly vanished near their suburban neighborhood. For five long years, their Uncle Lucas and his girlfriend, Annabel, have been madly searching for them. But when, incredibly, the kids are found alive in a decrepit cabin, the couple wonders if the girls are the only guests they have welcomed into their home.
As Annabel tries to introduce the children to a normal life, she grows convinced of an evil presence in their house. Are the sisters experiencing traumatic stress, or is a ghost coming to visit them? How did the broken girls survive those years all by themselves? As she answers these disturbing questions, the new mother will find that the whispers she hears at bedtime are coming from the lips of a deadly presence.
