Director: Andy Muschietti
Main Stars: Jessica Chastain, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Megan Charpentier, Isabel Nelisse
Storyline: A uncle inherits two young girls that have been left in the woods after the death of their father.
Review (Spoils): Annabel (Jessica Chastain) is young wanna be rocker who lives with Jeff (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). When Jeff gets the two young girls Victoria and Lilly (Megan Charpentier, Isabel Nelisse )after they have been found in the woods years after the death of their father. Annebel was not ready to be child caregiver and better yet when Jeff gets injured and needs medical care she is really alone. But is she alone, the young girls start to talk to a being known as Mama.
The film starts off kind of slow with a car accident and the young girls fending for themselves after the father is missing. The girls a little primal and need caring but they prefer the being known as Mama. Who is Mama and where is Mama is another story.
Not much gore and blood in this film. It goes more on the storyline and haunting strangeness of the girls. The film focuses almost too much on Annabel and her childish attitude then actually Mama. But the real problem of this film is the fucking CGI the last 20min of the film is very painful! The film was not bad and then it fell apart with cheezy CGI yet again.
Rating: Another victim of CGI in the Horror world. Too bad as the film had something going for it….
