With “Mama” being one of the few PG-13 movies out at the theaters, it has rocked the box office with taking in $28.1 million dollars during opening weekend and was released on January 18.
“Mama” is not just another corny scary movie; this movie is a one of a kind film due to the storyline that the theaters have not seen in a long time.
“Mama” is about two sisters who have been living in the forest alone with the protection of their deceased mother. They are found five years later and are sent to live with their uncle and his strange girlfriend. The evil presence follows the girls and torments their guardians due to the fact that she is jealous and upset that she has lost the girls.
“ ‘Mama’ had a great story line, and the whole movie was very creepy from beginning to end,” junior Ashley Gauthier said.
The special effects on “Mama” were outstanding, and she looked very creepy and scary; the suspense lasts all throughout the movie instead of just at certain parts.
The movie kept the theater on the edge of their seats the whole time and had the audience screaming and jumping from all the scenes where Mama would appear.
“I thought ‘Mama’ was amazing. I loved it and I loved the end where the girl turned into a moth,” freshman Pauline Wheelis said.
The ending of the movie was sufficient to some while it was lacking in completeness for others and left them wanting more.
“ ‘Mama’ was an epic thrill ride and kept me on the edge of my seat, but the ending left me with so many questions,” junior John Morcos said.
