Mama

mama A good solid, but unoriginal, horror film with some genuinely creepy moments.

Despite that it felt unoriginal, there was something almost welcoming about the familiar plot scenario. A bit like settling down to read a book by a favourite author; you know what to expect.

It was also a welcome change to see a more traditional approach where a reliance on atmosphere rather than latex gore is used to build up a feeling of fear. There are some genuinely creepy behind you moments where suspense is built up nicely.

However one does have to ask. Why do they always leave it too late in the day and end up investigating something in the dark? Have the characters never seen a horror film!

If you liked The Woman In Black then this should appeal to you as well.
