Octavia Spencer is known for playing roles that endear you to her character, such as in Hidden Figures and The Help. However, the Oscar winner is changing her tune in the new thriller movie, MA.
According to IMDB, Octavia plays Sue Ann, a.k.a MA, who befriends a group of teenagers and decides to let them party at her house. Just when the kids think their luck couldn’t get any better, things start happening that make them question the intention of their host.
The new trailer for the film starts off in a happy go-lucky manner with some high school kids looking for a party. They make the mistake of asking Octavia’s character buy them some beer and it all goes downhill from there.
“You’re free to do whatever you want down here but nobody go upstairs,” Octavia says in the trailer. “Welcome to Ma’s!” Uh-Oh.
After Octavia gives the kids a place to party, the relationship between her and the teens turns deadly.
MA, which stars Octavia, Luke Evans, Juliette Lewis, Missi Pyle and Allison Janney, will hit theaters in May.
