I saw the movie MAMA.  

I saw the movie Mama last night. That was our scary movie for the night. Honestly, I thought it was a decent movie. There was no gore, which was a huge plus, and only mild amounts of just plain gross.

On the gross front, it was hard to watch the littlest girl eat moths. Though I supposed the premise of the movie, two children growing up away from civilization in the wilderness with a ghost they called Mama, flows with the idea that a little girl would find anything edible and consume it. Though it was always odd when she'd chew on her sister's hair.

The little girls in the movie (Megan Charpentier as Victoria and Isabelle Nelisse as Lilly) do a great job of just plain acting odd especially the youngest who honestly gave me the creeps.

I was surprised, for some reason, to see Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Uncle Lucas. I hadn't really expected to see him in the movie though I really liked him and thought he had some great scenes with Megan and Isabelle.

Jessica Chastain was wonderful as Annabel their reluctant maternal guardian. Because I wasn't paying attention to the credits it actually took me about half the movie before it dawned on me that it was in fact Jessica as Annabel. Sadly, Annabel is the girl's Uncle's girlfriend who ends up reluctantly helping him care for the girls when they are found 5 years after the death of their parents. It is clear that Annabel doesn't really like children but as the movie goes on you start to see a change in the children and Annabel which makes the last scenes really wonderful.

Of course, I'm not going to tell you everything that happened but it was a really decent movie if a bit gross at times.

Yeah, that is what I thought too but it was decent. Didn't give my nightmares of anything.
