So, Jessica Chastain dyeing her dazzing red locks black? Yeah, we're gonna have to get used to that, but it's all part of the goth look she's put together for the Guillermo del Toro-produced horror "Mama." And the first trailer is here to send a tingle up your spine.

So, Jessica Chastain dyeing her dazzing red locks black? Yeah, we're gonna have to get used to that, but it's all part of the goth look she's put together for the Guillermo del Toro-produced horror "Mama." And the first trailer is here to send a tingle up your spine.

Directed by Andres Muschietti in what is an expansion of his 2008 short of the same name, the plot revolves around two little girls who ran away into the woods after their parents were mysteriously killed. Now under the care of the raven haired Chastain and some guy who isn't Jeffrey Dean Morgan because they couldn't afford him, something sinister may still be following them. CUE OMINOUS SHOT OF A LIGHT SWITCH!

This looks kind of awful, and could this be Chastain's first misstep? Will she follow the path of fellow young rising actresses Elizabeth Olsen and Jennifer Lawrence in knocking out a horror movie that will quickly be forgotten? Or will this be a pleasant surprise to kickstart 2013? "Mama" calls for you on January 18th.
