Landing at number 8 on my Most Anticipated Horror Films of 2013 list is the Guillermo del Toro produced, Mama. By now we’ve all seen the trailers, stills, and even the short film that inspired the feature. As we are only just a little over a week away from its January 18 premier, Universal has unleashed this great featurette for the film that takes a behind-the-scenes look at Mama. Watch the featurette below with interviews from Del Toro, Jessica Chastain and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau along with a bit of new footage.
Directed by Andres Muschiette, Mama, follows right behind Texas Chainsaw 3D to get our new year of horror kicked off.
“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.”
