Watch MAMA Online Free (2013 Movie) : One thing becomes clear if you watch the horror films that Guillermo Del Toro is involved in: more often than not, he sympathizes with the monsters more than any of the "regular" humans who appear in the films. No doubt that was one of the things that drew him to "Mama," a project that began as a short film and that is now a full-length feature starring Jessica Chastain, opening in theaters everywhere on Friday. While the titular specter is creepy and at times very threatening, there is a sadness that ultimately defines who or what "Mama" really is, and that seems more important than the scares. ( Watch MAMA Online ) It's an interesting choice considering how often modern horror films seem to exist merely to service cheap shock gags, but Del Toro is nothing if not a lover of the classic tropes of the genre. His movie "The Devil's Backbone" is a good example of a ghost story that has more on its mind than just SCARE SCARE SCARE SCARE, and his movie "Pan's Labyrinth" may include monsters and supernatural landscapes, but it's hardly an empty thrill ride. And while Del Toro is not the primary author of "Mama," his name is certainly being used prominently to help sell this to the public because Universal believes (correctly, I suspect) that Del Toro has managed to define a certain kind of horror that he is associated with. I didn't love "Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark," but I think it's another solid example of the sensibility that Del Toro responds to in other filmmakers.

This time, Del Toro reacted to a short film by Andres Muschietti, and he helped the director develop the material as a feature. Muschietti directs from a script he wrote with Barbara, his producer/wife (who also produced the original short), as well as Neil Cross, a writer with a bunch of UK TV credits, and it certainly feels like the feature is the logical extension of what the short did very well. ( Download MAMA Movie ) I'll first say that there are some elements of the film that feel visually familiar, and the more ghost stories you've seen, the more likely it is you'll feel like you've seen the things that have influenced this film's signature elements. Even so, Muschietti has a really strong command in terms of how he stages his scenes to maximize the impact of an idea, and the film is exquisitely designed in terms of sound, something that is crucial for a horror filmmaker. The film gets off to a sad and ugly start as we hear about a financial meltdown that triggers a number of tragic consequences. In particular, we see one guy, Jeffrey (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) who hits the wall when the company he is in financial charge of goes into free-fall.

His two very young children are in the house, listening to all of this, and when he comes down the hall to the playroom where Victoria (Morgan McGarry) and her baby sister Lily (Maya Dawe) are waiting, it's a genuinely tense and upsetting beat. This guy's got a gun. He's obviously got nothing left to lose. And his kids know something's really wrong. He puts them in a car and takes them out, into the mountains, into the snow, into the night with no real plan for what he's going to do. ( Watch MAMA Online ) And by this point, the girl
