Octavia Spencer is the star of this physiological – horror thriller, Ma.
In the movie, a lonely woman befriends a group of teenagers but the short-lived friendship soon turns into a nightmare. The rules were simple: Don’t curse. Never go upstairs. One of the kids has to stay sober. And call her ‘Ma’.
I think that what is most scary for me is the switch from the warm, best cook, adorable mother and strong friend character which she portrays in The Help to the lonely, terrifying, sew-your-lips-together psycho that she becomes here. I kept thinking that she will make her award-winning pies and say “it’s alright children”. Reminder: this is not Minny Jackson, this is Sue Ann.
The movie trailer is interesting and gripping, filled with interesting plots and characters. I am glad it’s not a walking dead movie (I am so tired of zombies).
