For now at least Mama is the number one movie in the United States, and the folks behind it should be very proud of themselves. Though the CGI-laden spirit we saw as Mama up on the screen bothered some, we dug it. I mean, after all, no human can move like that, right? Wrong.
Below you’ll find a new video featuring Javier Botet’s motion test that illustrates how Mama came to life. The filmmakers used traditional prosthetic/make-up work with the addition of CGI hair to achieve the look you see in the film. Seriously, this person needs to be in every horror film from now until the end of time. You cats have got to see this!
The only thing creepier is this video of Charles Manson.
Read our Mama review here!
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.
As Annabel tries to introduce the children to a normal life, she grows convinced of an evil presence in their house. Are the sisters experiencing traumatic stress, or is a ghost coming to visit them? How did the broken girls survive those years all alone? As she answers these disturbing questions, the new mother will find that the whispers she hears at bedtime are coming from the lips of a deadly presence.
