Universal Pictures has released the first poster and trailer for Blumhouse’s psychological horror-thriller Ma. Directed by Tate Taylor, the film stars Octavia Spencer as a woman who befriends a group of teenagers who start to question her intentions when her hospitality turns into an obsession.
Everybody’s welcome at Ma’s. But good luck getting home safe.
Oscar® winner Octavia Spencer stars as Sue Ann, a loner who keeps to herself in her quiet Ohio town. One day, she is asked by Maggie, a new teenager in town (Diana Silvers, Glass), to buy some booze for her and her friends, and Sue Ann sees the chance to make some unsuspecting, if younger, friends of her own.
She offers the kids the chance to avoid drinking and driving by hanging out in the basement of her home. But there are some house rules: One of the kids has to stay sober. Don’t curse. Never go upstairs. And call her “Ma.”
But as Ma’s hospitality starts to curdle into obsession, what began as a teenage dream turns into a terrorizing nightmare, and Ma’s place goes from the best place in town to the worst place on earth.
Ma is set for release on May 31st and features a cast that includes Octavia Spencer, Juliette Lewis, Luke Evans, Missi Pyle, Diana Silvers, McKaley Miller, Corey Fogelmanis, Gianni Paolo, and Dante Brown.
