Mama Film Trailer Review
2013 offers a film featuring a mother's "undying" love with Mama. The only question is, "Is she even human?". Adults are puzzled as to how can two kids survived on their own for five years in the wild. Well, the catch is they weren't alone.
The trailer for mama looks good and features some creepy moments in the film. My only complaint is that they already included what "mama" looks like as seen in this trailer impressions for this 2013 horror movie. Even so, my curiosity is piqued. I am curious as to what is the nature of mama. Is she a ghost, malevolent spirit, an elemental, or what? What is her objective for haunting the guardian of the children she protected for five years? Is there really a haunting to begin with? Some movies play its audience well. They lure you in only to deliver a sucker punch of a twist or plot device in the end or later half of the film. Sometimes it is fresh and engaging, but usually it doesn't which could very well ruin the film. Let's just hope that it won't be the case with Mama.
