Mama – Motion Test
Last years hit movie, the Guillermo del Toro produced Mama was okay, let down some poor CGI for the Mama character. Everyone who knows me knows that I hate CGI in horror, apart form the odd ‘touch-up’ I don’t like it for characters or monsters, I still love good make-up. This test for Mama was undertaken before the shoot and features Javier Botet as the lady ghost Mama and it is delightfully spooky, especially in black and white. Botet (Medeiros in the REC series) whose especially thin physique is a result of Marfan syndrome, really knows how to manouvre his body to create something otherworldly and menacing.
