(73) Mama features plenty of creepy imagery, some interesting ideas, and a talented cast who do the best they can with a screenplay that doesn’t always live up to its concept.

Unfortunately, the third act payoff – when all is bared in the open – is far less frightening than the suspense that proceeds it.
