Five years ago, sisters Victoria and Lilly vanished from their suburban neighborhood without a trace. Since then, their Uncle Lucas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and his girlfriend, Annabel (Jessica Chastain), 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 alone? 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.
Canadian Connection: Filmed in Toronto and Hamilton. Several cast members are Canadian.
I liked this movie, except I hated Jessica Chastain's hair. Good twist about Mama.
Seems I only come on here to write a review if the movie is especially bad..............well this is one of them. I have to be honest I was looking forward to this one. It starts off as a cool story idea and then literally goes directly into the realm of horrible. The "haunting" or "possession" makes no sense at all. And for your own amusement please please please (if you bother to watch this) wait until one of the scenes where the "ghost" appears and pause it. I don't know for sure but I think the "ghost" is a thrift store mannequin.
On the bright side the kids in the movie do a reasonable job of acting and could have a bright future.
I don't want to say this is the worst movie I hav
