"Game of Thrones" baddie Nikolaj Coster-Waldau stars alongside Jessica Chastain in a supernatural thriller produced by Guillermo del Toro. MAMA, based on a Spanish short with the same title, is obviously inspired by the Mexican tale of La Llorona. Watch the chilling new trailer from the movie.
In MAMA, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, best known as the incestous Jaime Lannister on HBO's successful "Game of Thrones," plays a good guy as an uncle to two girls who appear after being lost in the woods for years following their mother's murder.
Five years ago, sisters Victoria and Lilly vanished from their suburban neighborhood without a trace. Since then, their Uncle Lucas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and his girlfriend, Annabel (Jessica Chastain), have been madly searching for them. But when, incredibly, the kids are found alive in a decrepit cabin, the couple wonders if the girls are the only guests they have welcomed into their home.
As Annabel tries to introduce the children to a normal life, she grows convinced of an evil presence in their house. Are the sisters experiencing traumatic stress, or is a ghost coming to visit them? How did the broken girls survive those years all alone? As she answers these disturbing questions, the new mother will find that the whispers she hears at bedtime are coming from the lips of a deadly presence.
MAMA begins its spook fest January 18, 2013.
