Movie Info

From a producer of Paranormal Activity and Insidious comes this shock-filled descent into fear. After a man is seemingly strangled in his bed, criminal psychologist Kate Fuller (Olga Kurylenko) interviews the sole witness, the victim's eight-year-old daughter, Sophie. When asked to identify the killer, Sophie says, "Mara". As Kate digs into the case, she unearths a community of people who claim to be tormented by a shadowy menace, a centuries-old demon who kills her victims as they sleep.

Critic Reviews for Mara

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

A generically conceived horror thriller distinguished only by its belief that more hysteria equals a more frightening movie.

September 7, 2018 | Full Review…

A poky thriller that - eventually - delivers some decent scares.

September 6, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a reasonable premise for a horror film, but the execution is remarkably lackluster.

September 5, 2018 | Full Review…

You're not dreaming... it's another mediocre horror movie about sleep paralysis.

September 10, 2018 | Full Review…

... relies on cheap frights, creepy imagery, shrieking music swells, and other genre clichés instead of generating meaningful or consistent suspense.

September 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Tonge provides some dark and chilly atmosphere ... but that's not nearly enough to elevate Mara above its tedious formula.

September 7, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
