The first TV spot for the upcoming horror movie Mama
is here and I definitely recommend you to check it out. It’s not like you’re going to see something spectacular in this short video, but hey – at least you will get another reminder that a mother’s love is forever
. And especially when that love hides in a creepy story executive produced by Guillermo del Toro
directed this supernatural thriller from a script which he co-wrote with Neil Cross
and Barbara Muschietti
, and the whole thing centers on a couple who is faced with the challenge of raising two little grls discovered in a forest after being lost there for five years.
As we previously reported, Mama
stars Jessica Chastain
, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
, Megan Charpentier
and Isabelle Nellsse
, and the movie is set to open on January 18th, 2013.
Mama 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. Five years ago, sisters Victoria and Lilly vanished from their suburban neighborhood without a trace. Since then, their Uncle Lucas and his girlfriend, Annabel, 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.
