If her latest movie trailer is any indication, you don’t want to mess with Octavia Spencer. In “MA,” a group of teenagers from Ohio ask a random woman to buy alcohol for them, and she “even offers up her basement as a place to party. But there are rules: One of the kids has to stay sober. Don’t curse. Never go upstairs. And call her ‘Ma.’ What seems like a golden opportunity for the new teen in town and her pals turns into a terrorizing nightmare, and Ma’s house goes from the best place in town to the worst place on Earth,” according to Deadline. Watch below:
This is the 46-year-old like we’ve never seen her before, and the role, shockingly, fits her. Hopefully, with this flick, she was paid what she deserves because just from this teaser, alone, everyone should be left shook. The movie was produced by Blumhouse Productions, the company behind Jordan Peele‘s “Get Out,” and his upcoming film, “Us.” Spencer also reunited with Tate Taylor on this project, who directed “The Help.”
The thriller which comes out May 31 also stars Juliette Lewis, Luke Evans, McKaley Miller, Missi Pyle, Corey Fogelmanis, Gianni Paolo, Diana Silvers, and Dante Brown.
