The first trailer for MA is here! The psychological horror movie stars Oscar® winner Octavia Spencer in the lead. Watch the MA trailer right here and check out the fierce poster for this Blumhouse horror movie!

The first trailer for MA is here. We’re pretty damn excited about the upcoming Blumhouse Horror Movie MA because it stars Octavia Spencer in the titular role!

Her character is named Sue Ann, which sounds very sweet and dainty, but she wants to be called “Ma”. And she’s anything but sweet and dainty.

MA is directed by Tate Taylor (The Girl on the Train) which also means yet another reunion for director Tate Taylor and actor Octavia Spencer. She’s been in most of his movies and he directed her Academy Award-winning performance in The Help.

The new horror movie is based on a story by Scotty Landes with the actual screenplay penned by both Scotty Landes and Tate Taylor.

MA will be out in US theaters on May 31, 2019. Watch the trailer for horror movie MA at the bottom of this page!

MA creator Scotty Landes

Scotty Landes most recently wrote several episodes of Who Is America? Also, he has written the “Rabid, Rabid Zombies” episode of the upcoming Netflix anthology series The Green Beret’s Guide to Surviving the Apocalypse.

The Green Beret’s Guide to Surviving the Apocalypse is very simply a Netflix show that will focus on world-ending scenarios. And, of course, one of them features zombies. Obviously!

These details alone are enough to make me very curious about this movie. And with the added bonus of Blumhouse, Tate Taylor and Octavia SpencerI cannot wait to watch MA

This first trailer for MA is definitely adding to my already high expectations! 

The official synopsis for MA:

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, a new teenager in town (Diana Silvers, Glass), to buy some booze for her and her friends. 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 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.

The cast of MA

In addition to Octavia Spencer, the film also stars Juliette Lewis (August: Osage County) as Maggie’s mom and Luke Evans (Beauty and the Beast) as a local dad with Missi Pyle (Director’s Cut) as his girlfriend.

As Maggie’s friends, we have McKaley Miller (Hart of Dixie), Corey Fogelmanis (Girl Meets World), Gianni Paolo (Power) and Dante Brown (Lethal Weapon TV series).

In general, there are quite a few actors from previous Tate Taylor movies. Including the always brilliant Allison Janney who also starred in The Help.

I usually keep up-to-date with all the horror news, and make sure Heaven of Horror share the best and latest trailers for upcoming horror movies. I love all kinds of horror. My love affair started when I watched 'Poltergeist' alone around the age of 10. I slept like a baby that night and I haven't stopped watching horror movies since. The crazy slasher stuff isn't really for me, but hey, to each their own. I guess I just like to be scared and get jump scares, more than being disgusted and laughing at the grotesque. Also, Korean and Spanish horror movies made within the past 10-15 years are among my absolute favorites.
