"We're not just telling the story of a monster, we're telling the story of a very human emotion that is now monstrously out of proportion."
A couple of days ago we shared four film clips with you from Guillermo del Toro's Mama, and today we bring you a great new featurette for the film. It includes interviews with the cast and crew talking about the story, and some new footage from the film. I love the concept, it's terrifyingly nightmarish, the success of the movie depends on how that concept is executed though.
The horror film stars Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game Of Thrones), and it was directed by Andy Muschietti who was also the director of the short film, which is pretty cool as well. Mama hits theaters on January 18th, 2013.
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 (JessicaChastain), 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.
