If you were scared to drink tea after seeing “Get Out,” you’ll be terrified of knocking back any kind of alcohol after watching the trailer for “Ma.”
In the horror movie from Blumhouse Productions and Universal, Oscar winner Octavia Spencer plays a woman who buys booze for a group of teenagers and invites them to party at her house. She then throws increasingly crazy ragers and grows creepily attached, even sending them all video messages and goading them for constant partying.
“Welcome to Ma’s,” Spencer’s character says. “Don’t make me drink alone! Don’t make me drink allloooonneeee!”
But Ma’s got a set of rules too, telling the kids they can party in the basement all they want, but can never go upstairs. What they find is sure to evoke “Get Out” and several other recent horror hits.
Spencer is reuniting with her “The Help,” director, Tate Taylor, for her horror movie turn. Taylor also wrote the screenplay with Scotty Landes, and Spencer is an executive producer.
Juliette Lewis, Diana Silvers, Luke Evans, McKaley Miller, Missi Pyle, Corey Fogelmanis, Gianni Paolo and Dante Brown co-star in the film.
“Ma” opens in theaters on May 31. Watch the first trailer above, and let’s get the party started.
