Mexican film director, writer and producer, Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy, The Hobbit), is at it again with Mama, his latest executive production. The supernatural thriller is the directorial debut of Andres Muschietti; it hits theaters January 18, 2013.

Judging by the trailer, it has all the right ingredients to scare the wits out the viewer – del Toro style. Sisters Lilly and Victoria disappear into the woods the day their parents are killed. Their uncle Lucas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Game of Thrones) and his girlfriend Annabel (Jessica Chastain, The Help) search high and low for the little tykes. Five years after their disappearance, they are found alive, living in a decrepit cabin. 

But the family reunion is not the happy moment Lucas and Annabel had anticipated. Something, or someone, has kept the girls company all these years – and still wants to come tuck them in at night. 

Yikes!
