While we all await the return of The Walking Dead (February cannot come soon enough!) I want to talk about Guillermo Del Toro's new film: Mama. Have you seen it? Everyone I've spoken to who has seen it has said that it's super scary. I, myself, can't even bring myself to watch the commercials! I know that has some of you laughing because I pride myself in my love of horror films (I recently scored a 92/100 on a "How Many of These Horror Films Have You Seen?" quiz), but it doesn't mean I'm always brave enough to see a particular movie. I still remember when my friend and I went to see The Grudge and I hid under a blanket the whole time. I think that was a first for me -- hearing a movie, rather than seeing it. Ha ha!
Well, Mama seems to have such an intense eeriness to it that I'm not sure I want to subject myself to it. I'd probably come home and envision good ol' Mama popping up all over my house.
My nephew said it's one of the scariest films he's seen (although he wished for a different ending). A co-worker said she laughed through the whole thing. Puzzled, I asked her if she laughed because she thought it was silly or if she thought it was so freakin' scary that she forced herself to laugh just so she could get through it. She said it was the latter. Boy, that sure sounds intriguing!
What to do? What to do? Maybe I'll just skip this one...? Let me know what you think.
Until next time,
