Horror flick Mama debuts in UK cinemas today, having rustled up some pretty impressive box-office numbers the other side of the pond.

Directed by Andres Muschietti and ‘presented’ by the ever-present Guillermo del Toro, the film is your classic creepy kids opus, with an added twist.

In the video below, stars Jessica Chastain and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau have their say, as well as the kids themselves (Isabelle Nelisse and Megan Charpentier).
