Jamie Lannister freaks out in 1st trailer for del Toro's horror pic

Wanna see Lannister's golden boy take on some creepy kids? Nikolaj Coster-Waldau gets off his high horse to tangle with one evil mother in this ghostly Hollywood gallop. Take a peek ... and be careful what you bring home from the woods.

Directed by Andy Muschietti from his disturbing 2008 Spanish-language horror short, this new entry in the "deranged feral kid" subgenre has the added wattage of producer Guillermo del Toro, who knows a thing or two about supernatural terror. See for yourself ...

Mmm. Eerie goodness. Here's the official synopsis:

The day their father killed their mother, sisters Victoria and Lilly vanished near their suburban neighborhood. For five long years, their Uncle Lucas and his girlfriend, Annabel, have been madly searching for them. But when, incredibly, the kids are found alive in a decrepit cabin, the couple wonders if the girls are the only guests they have welcomed into their home.

As Annabel tries to introduce the children to a normal life, she grows convinced of an evil presence in their house. Are the sisters experiencing traumatic stress, or is a ghost coming to visit them? How did the broken girls survive those years all by themselves? As she answers these disturbing questions, the new mother finds the whispers she hears at bedtime are coming from the lips of a deadly presence.

Mama also stars Jessica Chastain, Megan Charpentier and Isabelle Nellsse, and is due to be unleashed Jan. 18, 2013, just in time for winter's chill. Does it warm your interest, or have you abandoned spooky siblings for good?
