* CounterpartComparison: Mama has been compared to [[{{Literature/Coraline the Other Mother]], as both are long-fingered humanoid monsters with maternal {{Yandere}} traits toward the children they look after. However, Mama is acting in the childrens' best interest, while the Other Mother is using the children for her own benefits.

* DisabledCharacterDisabledActor: Many of Mama's bizarre and unsettling body movements were real, as she was played by an actor with Marfan syndrome, which allows him to move like that naturally. The long fingers are also a result of the condition.

It's five years later, and their uncle Lucas (Creator/NikolajCosterWaldau, [[ActingForTwo again]]) has spent himself into bankruptcy trying to find any trace of his missing family, with only his girlfriend, Annabel (JessicaChastain) --the bassist in a small-time rock band-- for support. When a search party finds them somehow alive, regressed to a near-feral state, he fights tooth and nail to bring them home so they can begin the healing process. But after getting custody of them, it soon becomes clear that there was ''something'' taking care of them in the woods... and it won't let them go so easily.
