Mama (2013)

Director: Andrés Muschietti

Stars: Jessica Chastain, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Megan Charpentier, 

Jeffery shoots his two business partners and his wife, then goes home and takes his two daughters away into the woods.  On the snowy roads he loses control of his car and crashes in the woods.  He locates an abandon house for them to hide out in.  Under lots of confusion and sadness, he is going to shoot his kids then himself, but a dark force lives in the house and removes him.

The girls are found five years later with the help of Jeffery's brother, Lucas.  The girls have gone wild without people and raising.  Lucas and his girlfriend receive custody of the girls.    Something else has moved into the house with the girls to help watch over them.  The dark spirit Mama is lurking in the walls to protect her girls.

These girls were so dirty when they were found.  How did they not end up sick or get some disease.  The youngest one is eating moths in the floor.  I would sent her packing after seeing that.  Just saying.  You know something is up after that.

There are a few made you jump scenes in the movie, but the movie itself is not scary at all.  The look of the spirit is incredible.  The way the hair and clothing softly move in the air.  It looks as if is being filmed in slow moving water.  The acting by the little girls was better than I expected.  The movie is very watchable. Enjoy.
