Mama Trailer & Original Short


Here’s the really short film by Andrés Muschietti that attracted Guillermo Del Toro to executive produce the upcoming feature length version. I can’t believe two minutes is all it took to get the attention of a big-time director/producer. Short films, especially on the web, seem to be an effective calling card these days...


Talk about a bad hair day. Wonder how much it cost to produce. And now the trailer...


Although feral children and a ghostly creature certainly sounds like a winning formula, I don’t see a lot beyond the typical jump scares. When Del Toro puts his producer hat on, he goes for out-of-the-box genre stories like Julia’s Eyes and The Orphanage, so I’ll reserve judgement.
