When Guillermo Del Toro’s name is attached to any project, it brings high hopes and usually a fantastical gripping time. Sadly, last years earlier effort DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK (directed by Troy Nixey), while looking epic and spectacular at times, was rather a damp squib. No matter though, as Del Toro is currently producing another creepy thriller, this time based on the acclaimed short film MAMA by Andres Muschietti, who will also make his full-length feature film debut.

The film tells the unsettling story of two young girls who vanish in the woods on the day their mother is found murdered. After missing for five years they are rescued and begin a new life with a couple played by Jessica Chastain and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau but they will soon find that MAMA may have never left them alone after all!

Check out this chilling new trailer and poster for the film released early next year.
