Guillermo del Toro Shows Off The Horror Short That Inspired MAMA

Director Guillermo del Toro produced a horror film coming out early next year called Mama, and he introduces the short film that inspired the film. The short is awesomely terrifying, and I can see why Del Toro wanted to adapt it into a feature film. The short supposedly contains one of the scariest scenes that Del Toro has seen. The short was directed by Andy and Barbara Muschietti, and as you'll see it looks like a great horror film! Andy actually ended up directing the feature film.

Mama comes out in theaters on January 18th, 2013, and it stars Jessica Chastain, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Megan Charpentier and Isabelle Nellsse. Watch the short and let us know if you're looking forward to seeing the feature film!

A supernatural thriller that tells the haunting tale of two little girls who disappeared into the woods the day that their mother was murdered. 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.

The day their father killed their mother, sisters Victoria and Lilly vanished near their suburban neighborhood. For five long years, 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 by themselves? 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.
