Andy Muschietti is a 23 year old Spanish filmmaker who has managed to get Pans Labyrinth genius Guillermo Del Toro to fund and produce his first film. How? By making a very impressive, creepy little movie called Mama, which has been playing at international festivals in the past year and causing fans to sit up and take notice. Rightly so - it's one of the best shorts I've seen in a long while, and it packs plenty into a little over three minutes. Muschietti is expanding this into a feature length fright fest that should definately be worth a look if he can keep the suspense and atmosphere seen below. Check it out and pay attention to just how long the main shot is and the environment it moves through. Damn impressive.
