Sue Ann, a loner in her quiet Ohio town, is asked by Maggie, a new teenager in town, to buy some booze for her and her friends. Sue Ann sees the chance to make some unsuspecting younger friends. She offers the kids the chance to avoid drinking and driving by hanging out in the basement of her home as long as they abide by the house rules. Her hospitality starts to curdle into obsession, and what began as a teenage dream turns into a terrorizing nightmare.

Not sure you can call this a horror film, there really is only a few minutes of gory horror. I felt most of the movie was kids partying and the suspense I put in my on mind to anticipate what I thought was coming. So when we did get to the action I was let down. I liked the twist of discovering how everyone was intertwined and wished they had used it more of those storylines in building up to the reveal. Instead Ma just looked like a crazy person that needed hospitalized.

A movie about a crazy older fat Black woman going after teens. The main hit is Octavia Spencer, however, I did not find her scary. I think Taraji P. Henson may have suited that type of role better as I've seen her in Proud Mary (2018) and Acrimony (2018) and she would seem more convincing to me as a vindictive villianese than Octavia. Maybe I'm used to Octavia in other roles that it's difficult to process her as being that wicked or crazy. That being said, it was still fun watching her performance.

The story itself doesn't logically make sense because the teens were too cool with someone showing those type of stalkerish tendencies for this to be believable. This is not the 1960s, and even by the time you hit the 70s-80s that free spirit of trusting strangers is gone. Overall, especially being 2019, it is just too silly for "suspension of disbelief" and because of that there is not enough tension.

I did like the opening scene (film score and cinematography), and overall set-up and some jump scares, and don't regret giving this movie a shot, but don't feel it stuck the landing.

I'm soo angry with myself I could scream. I knew this would happen... Another overtly asinine plot! And who in the world could buy Octavia Spencer as frightening? And WTF are you other people even thinking? Four and five stars got this crap?! What are you watching if you think this hokey baloney is near perfect?!?

When I saw the comments for this movie and someone I saw on a website mentioned this movie was bad because they couldn't understand why Ma was the way she was well it was easy to understand because of how she became during high school and it was a slow burn revenge movie which I don;t understand how that was not figured out. They make revenge movies all the time about the horrors of teens so this was the same point.

I liked it because it seemed like a crazy plot and it was too. Well at lease Ma did get some revenge which they deserved what they did to Ma and women can be more slow at revenge then a man will be which is why you do not mess with a woman she know how to plan and find out information.

A tight psychological horror drama that has a believable but at times lame setup before the rapid-fired terror-packed ending. Could use another actor to portray Ma than Octavia Spencer in mho.
