One of the best experiences that I can have at a movie theater is when I am in a packed theater during a scary movie. It doesn’t need to be a gore flick, but a moody, jump scare film. Now there are plenty of those flicks getting released that offer a bare minimum thrills because apparently making horror movies is a cheap and quick way to make a buck. There are too many that get released that just come and go, but sometimes there is a movie that sticks out of the muck of gore, violent, and jumpy movies. Mama managed to be one of those movies that made for a great view in a crowded theater because it relied on something that a of horror movies are missing, true old school scares. Nothing beats a well timed and rightfully placed “boo”.
