    I liked the psychological drama/build-up, as well as the plot. You want to feel sorry for Ma, but she shouldn't have done what she had done. It was also nice to see Juliette Lewis in the movies again. I recommend seeing it.

    This movie had so much potential to actually be great The issue with this film is there isn't enough script, it's more just a complete focus on Octavia without actually giving her any stories And then the very end is absolutely terrible

    This is a great movie. It really makes you get into perspective what Matt is thinking I really enjoyed this film. Thank you to the producers and the actors you should watch this movie for sure!

    I'll start with negatives because there aren't many. I'd say the plot is relatively predictable, you piece most of the important parts together within the first 30 minutes of screen time. I'd also say it does go a bit too much into the gore, so if that's something that concerns you steer clear. But that's it. Everything else is good. The characters are very believable especially for high school characters, the plot, though predictable, is still interesting, the horror and creep element is still there (though a bit on the nose) and the acting is excellent. I'd say its definitely a decent horror movie, so its weird its ranked so low.

    The plot is a little thin, but it has some great tense moments that make it a decent enough film. Worth a watch.

    As with most horror flicks, you must suspend belief to really enjoy it. Octavia Spencer is so good that I can easily get involved in her character. "Cult following" tells you something must be good with this movie.

    "Ma" is a ludicrous horror thriller movie that is admittedly pretty entertaining. This movie's greatest strength is Octavia Spencer, who is having a great time with this wild character. It was nice to see the talented actress take on a genre she is not as known for and I think she did a good job being creepy and menacing. I feel like the movie glosses over the backstory element a bit and could have been more interesting in that way. I also feel like the characters are really dumb in this movie, which isn't uncommon in horror movies, but some of the choices they would make in here were absolutely eye-rolling. Overall, the movie is silly in a lot of ways, and left me wanting more in others, but is a fun ride that is unique enough to check out and memorable enough because of Spencer's zany lead performance.
