Not for kids ... but it should be obvious I guess. Good potential and some scary moments but it's quite overshadowed by the 'typical' horror movie cliche's. Why oh why do people have to go around searching for stuff in the woods at night or walk around in their house in the dark when they hear a creepy noise? Have they never watched a horror movie?
Good visuals but the ending left me unsatisfied. Too many unanswered questions and didn't really make sense in the end.

Good story and cinematography. I just wish we knew more about Mama (the character).

This is good but it is not that scary to me, but I would not recommend it for kids, It is only for adults, and the kids in the movie were, Morgan McGarry, Isabelle Nelise and Morgan Cherpentier, these kids were excellent!! and very cool features such as special effects.

I liked it, it was creepy and scary, without being gross.

I love Del Toro's vision in all his movies. He has this fascinating adult (not as in xxxadultxx but rather grown up) fairy tale element to all his movies (his best by my opinion isThe Devil's Backbone). I also like the fact that he may use scary imagery, but in the end his movies aren't horror. They are simply tales that seem frightening, but are very simple and almost always innocent. Much like life, the unknown is far scarier than reality.

A scary story with freaky creepy creatures and a sincere emotional warmth - there's a rarity. Love the uniqueness of this one.

I really liked this movie. I even shed a few tears at the end. I loved Pan's Labyrinth and this was another one that was super good. In my opinion.

The story is pretty good but it fizzles out about half way through and then turns into a typical over produced Hollywood ending.
