While he was in Toronto last year shooting PACIFIC RIM, Guillermo del Toro was simultaneously keeping an eye on MAMA, the debut feature from director Andy Muschietti, del Toro's latest protege. Today we've got a behind-the-scenes look at the film, which comes out next week.
Guillermo del Toro presents Mama, a supernatural thriller that tells the haunting tale of two little girls who disappeared into the woods the day that their parents were killed. When they are rescued years later and begin a new life, they find that someone or something still wants to come tuck them in at night.
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.
MAMA opens JANUARY 18th.
