Say what you will about Guillermo Del Toro's ability to deliver his own films, but there's no denying that when it comes to producing (especially in the horror genre) he has a solid track record. With Mama, Del Toro has helped director Andres Muschietti adapt his own film – a tale of two adopted girls who are being followed by a malicious force – for a more mainstream audience. If The Orphanage is any indication of the type of film Del Toro wants to introduce to American audiences, then we're surely in for an intense ride.
In addition to an American debut for Muschietti, Mama is also the first major starring role for Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister on HBO's Game of Thrones. Luckily Waldau gets to act opposite the fantastic Jessica Chastain, who stars in Zero Dark Thirty as well.
