Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconTo the credit of director Andy Muschietti, his co-writing team and a first-rate cast, Mama succeeds in scaring the wits out of us and leaving some lingering, deeply creepy images, despite indulging in many of the aforementioned cliches — and about a half-dozen more.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconMama follows an unfortunate recent pattern that has emerged in low-budget horror films, especially those with PG-13 ratings. It starts out strongly, using evocative visuals and an unsettling backstory to establish a creepy tableau, but it proves unable to sustain those strengths all the way to the finish line.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconMama doesn’t live up to their potential, but the film knows how to creep you out.

C. Fuchs quote iconIf you're looking for something more interesting or with del Toro's unique stamp on it, this offering will come off as mediocre at best.

Tomatometer quote iconIf you're into old-school scares over cheap gore, you'll be able to get over Mama's confusing script and contrived plot devices.
