There's something truly magical about a bond between a child and her mother. The laughter, the love, the joy -- the jealous murderous rage. Mama is a coming-of-age tale about a mother who lost her children... because she's a terrifying ghost creature that kills people. The reason she's not higher up on this list is because, let's face it, she's just a mom that cares a lot for her kids. You can't fault her for being too protective. Although anger therapy is probably a much better alternative to neck-breaking therapy. Probably. Mama is a scary one. Regardless of her somewhat noble intentions, she is no fun. Is it her homicidal tendencies? Her long slender fingers? Her "Oh my God, that is the scariest noise ever" voice? All of the above? Yeah... It's all of the above.
