    Doesn't offer too much more compared to anything else that's already occurred in the genre. Although I'll say one thing, Ma in road rage mode pretty much makes up for the other weird bullshit we get put through in the movie's lead up. Good if you want something fairly straight forward in the horror genre and can't find too much else to watch on Netflix... Or simply love to watch Octavia Spencer act her arse off

    I'm not afraid of zombie movies or panic movies, but I think this movie is too scary. Maybe it's a great movie in that sense.

    Very solid horror/thriller. Enjoyable to the end. While it may not be perfect, it's still quite the film.

    The acting genius of Octavia Spencer is utterly wasted on this horrid B movie script. The finale is confusing and leaves a lot unsaid, but in this case I'd doubt anyone would want a sequel.

    Despite Octavia Spencer doing a great job, "Ma" is a flawed and confused mess.

    Octavia Spencer's acting was the ONLY good thing about this movie.

    I can't even say into what genre this film should be classified. The Horror - 3 stars: A sexual humiliation (?sort of comedic?) or white supremecy/revenge (?) or love story gone bad (?) or child abuse (?). It all adds up, certainly but it's messy.. The Hook/Pace - 3 stars: As long as Octavia Spencer is on screen, things move along. The Jumps - 3: Okay, one GREAT one, a few good ones, then a great final 15 minutes. But this works as a dark comedy, really. The Film - 4) Spencer is FREAKY great and yes, if you're a fan, you gotta see this. She's got some disco moves, and the soundtrack here is GROOOOOVY!!! Then there is Juliette Lewis. AND Allison Janney! And Luke Evans! But the tone is off. The story has at it's center the aforementioned sex/humiliation that feels more comedic than anything. The End - 4 stars: Really good Carrie-level REVENGE! Summary - 3.4 - I'd have gone with a dark comedy tone, like "Freaky" . But I didn't make this movie. See this for Spencer and the soundtrack. Oh, and a hot guy (Gianni Paolo) gets naked but still Spencer steals that scene with one of the funniest lines in the movie. Do NOT trust MA!!!

    Octavia Spencer performance is so terrifying, disturbing and funny and it has Carrie and Misery references and the scripts are a bit mix feels but is a good psychological thriller.

    While you might be screaming at the characters' ludicrous decision, you'll be entertained by Octavia Spencer's creepy, suspenseful performance.

    So sad to see Octavia Spencer in such a demeaning role after shining in Hidden Figures. It's not the first time an actor in a great movie loses his/her compass direction, but this?
