Guillermo del Toro’s
upcoming supernatural thriller called Mama
will be chilling if the new trailer is anything to go by. The film tells the story of two girls who disappeared in the woods after their parents were killed. They are rescued years later and it is said that they could have a chance at a normal life if they are simply welcomed into a home. However, they may not have been alone in the woods and it looks as though something else still wants to tuck them in at night; something that they call Mama.
Mama stars Jessica Chastain
and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
, along with Megan Charpentier
and Isabelle Nélisse
who star as their re-found nieces. Neil Cross, has teamed up with Andres and Barbara Muschietti who wrote the short that this film is based on. The film was directed by Andres Muschietti while the project was overseen by Guillermo del Toro who acted as Executive Producer. Mama is scheduled for release in North America on January 18th with a staggered release across Europe.
