The GDT-presented horror film Mama opens January 18th, semi-opposite Jessica Chastain’s more “respectable” Oscar vehicle, Zero Dark Thirty. If it hasn’t gotten your attention yet, he wants to show you the original short that brought the material to his. I suspect it may have you hooked by the end.
In three minutes, that’s some pretty effective suspense. I’m tempted to credit the creature design, but I have seen similar in lesser productions that just don’t work at all. Can’t remember being this creeped out by YouTube before, though.
For the rest of the story, check out the feature in three weeks. And let’s hope it can sustain a three-minute concept over a full run-time.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
