“You know where the party is!” Universal has released the first trailer for the psychological horror thriller titled Ma, one of the latest films produced by Jason Blum for Blumhouse. Octavia Spencer stars in Ma as Sue Ann, a woman who befriends a group of teenagers and decides to let them hang out in her basement, to avoid drinking and driving. Just when the kids think their luck couldn’t get any better, weird things start happening. Her hospitality starts to curdle into obsession. The full cast of this horror includes Missi Pyle, Luke Evans, Juliette Lewis, Allison Janney, McKaley Miller, Diana Silvers, Dominic Burgess, Victor Turpin, Corey Fogelmanis, Kyanna Simone Simpson, Dante Brown, and Gianni Paolo. This starts out nice and fun at the beginning, then gets seriously frickin’ crazy by the end. Damn! Watch out.
