Here's the scariest short film Guillermo del Toro has ever seen

We're exceptionally intrigued by Guillermo del Toro's next producing project, the feral child ghost story Mama. And if you still haven't gotten the chills from this strange little production, check out the short film that inspired GDT to back the movie. Andres Muschietti, who wrote and and directed this short, is also direcing the feature-length movie Mama. So if you like what you see here, expect more of it in the actual film, starring Game of Thrones' Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Jessica Chastain.

Mama hits theaters on January 18th.
