Octavia Spencer is terrifying in her new, darker role in horror film trailer MA, proving she truly can play it all. Image Credit: Universal Pictures Oscar winner 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, played by Diana Silvers (Glass), to buy some booze for her and her friends. Sue Ann sees this as a 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 of course, things are never as simple or easy as they seem, especially in horror films. As Ma’s hospitality starts to curdle into obsession, what began as a teenage dream turns into a terrorising 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, and Missi Pyle (Gone Girl) as his girlfriend. Finishing the star-studded cast are McKaley Miller (TV’s Hart of Dixie), Corey Fogelmanis (Girl Meets World), Gianni Paolo (TV’s Power) and Dante Brown (Lethal Weapon TV series) as Maggie’s friends. Whilst the trailer looks thrilling and absolutely horrifying, it will be interesting to see just how well Octavia Spencer can play the villain. Ma will be released in UK cinemas on the 31st May 2019.
