He’s tackled the supernatural and dark fantasy worlds on the big screen… And, now Guillermo del Toro is getting his horror on.
Universal has released a new trailer for Mama, a horror film executive-produced by the 48-year-old Mexican filmmaker, who is best known for his films Hellboy and Pan’s Labyrinth.
The film centers on a couple, Annabel and Lucas, that is faced with the challenge of raising Lucas’ young nieces, who were discovered in a forest after being lost there for five years. It soon becomes apparent that the girls are being haunted by a ghostly woman they believe to be their mother. Meanwhile, Annabel plans to use the girls in a bid to bring back her own dead children.
Directed by Andres Muschietti, the supernatural thriller starring Jessica Chastain and Game Of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
The film is based on Muschietti’s Spanish-language short film Mamá, which was released in 2008.
Mama opens nationwide January 18, 2013.
