New Ma Trailer and Poster Hope You Get Home Safe… But Don’t Count on It!

It may be more of a thriller than a pure horror film; but the upcoming Ma, which boasts a pretty high caliber cast, looks to be something Brainwaves readers will want to keep on their radar.  It hails from Blumhouse/Universal so there’s that consideration as well!

From the Press Release:
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 (Diana Silvers, Glass), a new teenager in town, 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 also stars Juliette Lewis (August: Osage County) as Maggie’s mom; Luke Evans (Beauty and the Beast) as a local dad; Missi Pyle (Gone Girl) as his girlfriend; and McKaley Miller (TV’s “Hart of Dixie”), Corey Fogelmanis (TV’s “Girl Meets World”), Gianni Paolo (TV’s “Power”), and Dante Brown (“Lethal Weapon” TV series) as Maggie’s friends.

From Tate Taylor, the acclaimed director of The Help and Get On Up, and blockbuster producer Jason Blum (Get Out, Halloween, The Purge series) comes a thriller anchored by a daring and unexpected performance from Spencer, one of the most powerful actors of her generation.

Ma is written by Scotty Landes (Comedy Central’s “Workaholics”) and Taylor; is produced by Blum for his Blumhouse Productions, by Taylor, and by John Norris (executive producer, Get On Up); and is executive produced by Spencer, Couper Samuelson, Jeanette Volturno, and Robin Fisichella.

Welcome to Ma’s…  in theaters May 31st.
