Watch the Creepy ‘Mama’ Short Film, Now With Introduction by Guillermo del Toro!

Universal Pictures

Next month will see the release of ‘Mama’, the latest spookfest from producer Guillermo del Toro. Starring Jessica Chastain, the film is the feature debut for director Andy Muschetti, who got his chance at the big time when del Toro saw his short film of the same name – which we now have for your viewing pleasure, complete with an introduction by Guillermo del Toro himself!

Made in 2008, ‘Mama’ runs a quick 3 minutes but is still guaranteed to startle you. It tells the very simple story of two young girls who receive an unwelcome visitor in the house: their ghostly Mama. You’ll find yourself marveling at the technical skill on display as well as shuddering at the sheer weirdness of it all. (The short also raises plenty of questions, which are presumably answered in the feature-length version.)

For his part, del Toro was obviously impressed by Muschetti’s prowess with the camera and the ease with which he unnerves the viewer in such a brief amount of time. It can’t be easy to scare or astound del Toro, so consider yourself appropriately prepared for ‘Mama’.

‘Mama’ hits theaters on January 18th.
