“A mother’s love is forever.”
In theaters January 18, 2013, Guillermo del Toro presents Mama, a supernatural thriller that “Tells the haunting tale of two little girls who disappeared into the woods the day that their parents were killed. When they are rescued years later and begin a new life, they find that someone or something still wants to come tuck them in at night.”
Directed by Andy Muschietti, and penned by Andy and Barbara Muschietti, Universal Pictures has released the first official theatrical trailer and poster, alongside a pretty hefty batch of hi-res stills.
The first trailer is absolutely fantastic, building up to a series of chilling revelations and creepy imagery. With the hand of del Toro all over this one can only hope it’s better than Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark. It already looks way better. Your thoughts?

“Five years ago, sisters Victoria and Lilly vanished from their suburban neighborhood without a trace. Since then, their Uncle Lucas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and his girlfriend, Annabel (Jessica Chastain), have been madly searching for them. But when, incredibly, the kids are found alive in a decrepit cabin, the couple wonders if the girls are the only guests they have welcomed into their home.
As Annabel tries to introduce the children to a normal life, she grows convinced of an evil presence in their house. Are the sisters experiencing traumatic stress, or is a ghost coming to visit them? How did the broken girls survive those years all alone? As she answers these disturbing questions, the new mother will find that the whispers she hears at bedtime are coming from the lips of a deadly presence.”
