    Emma Stone And Guillermo Del Toro Getting Set For Ghost Story, Crimson Peak - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    Guillermo Del Toro has described his upcoming production, Crimson Peak, as “a Gothic romance with ghosts,” “set at the turn of the [twentieth] Century… dark and stormy and wind-swept.” He’s been producing a lot of spook shows over the last few years, but he hasn’t directed an out-and-out creepy picture himself in a very long time.

    It’s expected that he’ll shoot the film about a year from now. Still, one has to plan ahead – especially when you want some big name, stuffed-diary stars – and so Variety are reporting that Emma Stone is negotiating to appear in the film just now.
    Excellent.

    Mama (2013) | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central

    Ultimately, it feels like the story of Mama is a bit bipolar, much like the title character herself; on one hand, there's a lovely story in here about the power of womanhood and a mother's love, which is something that I really responded to (I may have shed a tear or two at Mama's conclusion), but on the other hand, there's also a sloppy and uneven story that doesn't even trust its audience enough to know what a ghost is. As a genre fan, that frustrated me a bit considering there are a lot of great things at play in Mama; it's just that first-time filmmaker Muschietti falters a bit and never quite delivers the movie he promises.

    In terms of genre projects that del Toro has produced throughout the years under other filmmakers, Mama falls in somewhere between the highly superior ghost tale The Orphanage and Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, which I felt were rather underwhelming efforts. But die-hard del Toro fans will need little convincing to show up in theaters this weekend and should be mostly happy with Mama. For the rest of you out there, however, Mama probably isn't going to do it for you.

    Review: Del Toro-produced Mama features a heartbroken monster and some serious mood

    "Mama" is at its weakest when it leans on certain devices that are very familiar, like the moth motif or the rotting wallpaper stains or the floating wet ghostly look, but it deserves credit for taking this material seriously, by trying to push the scares to a deeper emotional place. "Mama" lands enough of what it's trying to do that I suspect audiences will feel largely satisfied, and that the character has a lingering power that marks the film as a success. If you set your expectations properly and realize that this isn't about some boring force of pure random evil, but is instead a classic sort of a ghost story about lingering pain and horror, you may find "Mama" quite effective, indeed.

    Sounding like a solid movie...not a+ more like low b/high c material.

    Should help it to have Jessica Chastain in it at the absolute best time.
