Lucas, his girlfriend Annabel, Victoria and Lilly move into a house provided be the institute that Dr. Dreyfuss works for. Lucas...


My thoughts:
Scary movies are scary. So no, I can't say I am big on them. They give me nightmares, and honestly I get nightmares from watching deer and rabbits play on a meadow. Curse this brain! Especially when I wake up, brain still asleep but seeing things (there is a word for that), so there are snakes in my bed, I usually run out of the room. I know what I am doing, but I tell myself you are a sleep idiot and go back to the snakes....

But it was Halloween and I asked an expert (who LOVES getting scared) about what to watch.  A movie about freaky people in masks killing people? HELL NO! Mama?...ok, I ill give that one a go. It's paranormal, that is always better than normal people doing evil things. Enough with that on the news.

I must say it was not that scary. Bf jumped one time more than I did. But it was creepy. Honestly, euwwww. It was the kids, damn those kids! What is more creepy than kids coming towards you on all four like some freaky beetle?! Those kids scared the crap out of me. One of them did turn out normal  but then  younger creepy kid, the one that forgot who she was and only liked mama. Ugh, creepy.

Mama then, sure, she was evil, crazy, insane, and not someone I would like to meet. Just thinking of those kids in that disgusting rotting house makes me sad, and then an evil ghost took care of them. No wonder they ran around like freaky beetles.

It had a few jump moments, but mostly it was me shouting, GO GO GO leave them! Let their crazy mama have them! Especially when the movie takes a sinister thone because mama is NOT happy.

The end, oh I can't spoil that but..huh..yes I can't say anything. Fitting the movie I guess.

Now I guess I should say something about the actors. Well that GoT guy was not around much, can't say I felt him. Chastain was good, she did a great job, and the kids too were great.

And now, no more horror before next Halloween.
