MA

Just in time to save you from the mid-week blues, Blumhouse has released a trailer for its new psychological horror film MA.

Written by Scotty Landes (Workaholics) and directed by Tate Taylor (The Help), MA stars Oscar-winning actress Octavia Spencer (The Shape of Water) as a lonely woman who agrees to let a group of teenagers party at her house.

As you can see in the trailer below, however, Ma is not quite balanced and there are serious consequences for breaking the rules and deserting her.

This is a bit of a reunion between Taylor and Spencer. She won her Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for his film The Help, and it will be interesting to see the two teamed for a very tonally different film

Beyond Spencer the film boasts an impressive cast with Oscar-winner Allison Janney (I, Tonya), Luke Evans (Dracula Untold), and indie and genre darling Juliette Lewis (Natural Born Killers) as well as Diana Silvers (Into the Dark: Flesh and Bone), Corey Fogelmanis (Girl Meets World), Kyanna Simone Simpson (Black Lightning), Tanyell Waivers (Gothic Harvest), and Dante Brown (Deadtime Stories).

MA is set for release on May 31, 2019.
