Mamá (short)

Post by sherbetbizarre » Wed Jul 06, 2011 5:23 am

For those who like their Spanish horror...


Guillermo del Toro is in talks to produce and mentor commercial director Andres Muschietti's horror film Mama for Universal, according to RiskyBiz. Andy is writing the English-language screenplay with his sister and producer Barbra. The movie will be based on their acclaimed Spanish-language short film Mama, which traveled the European festival circuit last year. The short film told the story of Victoria and Lily, two girls who are go on the run from a ghostly woman in a Gothic home.

I merged it with this thread, which under the original Spanish title of Mamá and not easy to find!

I'm still waiting for this to open in the UK later this month...

I absolutely loved it. Great story actually! I don't want to ruin for Sherb so I'll wait for him to see it before I go into further detail but overall, it was a very unique, interesting "horror" film. ;)

Always interesting, and in this case surprising, to hear others opinions on horror flicks.

I thought it was a nice concept but a bad movie. Totally bad. By the end I thought I was watching Lord of The Rings. It was so out of control with the hollywood theatrics and effects.

Terrible ending, IMHO. The dumb bit with the butterflys.

Glad you guys liked it though.

Yeah, admittedly the ending was OTT, but I just about stuck with it. :)

I gess I really liked it because ultimately it was a beautiful and touching love story more than a "horror" film per se. Definitely different but overall I really like it!
