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 (12) | Top Critics (3)

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

Top Critic

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

Sep 6, 2018 | Full Review…

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

Sep 5, 2018 | Full Review…

The locations in Savannah, Georgia are atmospheric, but there is much clumsy exposition and some very lazy 'boo!'-type scares.

Nov 9, 2018 | Full Review…

A strong debut from Clive Tonge, Mara gets a little bogged down by its formulaic narrative, but does have some gems hidden amongst it.

Nov 4, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Horror need not be neat and tidy, but haphazard, unorganized scares with underdeveloped characters and dialogue that rivals fingernails on a chalkboard is beyond untidy. It's simply unnecessary.
