Feral girls, a mangled spectre and a creepy locale make for the setup of Guillermo del Toro’s latest horror film Mama. For it an international trailer was released today by Universal Pictures (complete with Spanish subtitles) and there are more than enough elements contained within to make one feel uncomfortable. Unfortunately, most of these elements have been used one too many times in horror movies of late, so your scare mileage will vary on how desensitized you are to these conventions. I’d still recommend watching it in a well lit room, though. Watch the included trailer now.
Mama stars Jessica Chastain, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Megan Charpentier, Isabelle Nélisse, Daniel Kash and Jane Moffat.
Mama haunts US theaters on January 18, 2013 and UK theaters on February 22, 2013.
