Why We're Watching
Every time we watch a trailer for Ma, we just get more and more confused. The talented and dramatic Octavia Spencer plays the titular character, a mysterious woman who befriends a group of teens in the interest of helping them party. Except, they don’t have any relation to her. Except, there seems to be something off about her. Except, she starts getting intensely obsessed and possessive about each one of them. As her positive and friendly demeanor slowly spirals into insanity and unhinged aggression, we the audience, are left as confused and terrified as her victims in the movie. There is so much we don’t understand about Ma, and there is no way to predict how this horrifying tale will end, but that’s what a good horror movie is.
