I have posted Mama once before, but I know not enough of you saw it, and now that the trailer for the full length film (produced by Guillermo Del Toro) has dropped, I thought it might be fun to post the two, side by side. Rather than tell you too much and ruin the fun, why don’t we just get right into the good stuff, huh?
Mama is a short written and directed by Andres Muschietti about two little girls whose Mama comes home. To tell you anything more would ruin it, so just stop what you’re doing and watch it.
It works so well in the time given, I can’t help but wonder how they are going to stretch this story out to 90 minutes for the big screen.
And now, for your viewing pleasure, the trailer for the new feature-length film based on this short.
I enjoyed the short enough that I will definitely check out the film when it comes out.
Long story short, when your sister runs into your room and tells you “Mama’s back”, shut the door in her face and go back to bed.
