Mama Trailer: Jessica Chastain, You Are Not the Mother

You're just getting to know rising star Jessica Chastain, but in the new horror movie Mama, she's already eschewed her trademark red locks for a punky black bob as a sorta-Goth, sorta-punk woman who takes in two feral children to raise on her own, though the kids still seem to be communicating with a malevolent spirit they call "Mama." Yep, that's a premise! We've been hearing good things about this horror number, produced by Guillermo Del Toro; since most awards-caliber actresses eventually take a trek through the horror-movie salt mines, let's hope that Chastain's trip is all in good, freaky fun.
