Octavia Spencer stars in a new thriller, Ma. And the trailer just scared the **** out of us. Go inside to see it, plus see Lupita Nyong'o effortlessly mesh crazy and and scary on the magazine front inside....

We're spooked, shooketh, hell, just plain SCAREDT.

Octavia Spencer takes her talents to a new horror thriller and might feel the same after watching the trailer that just dropped.

Universal and Blumhouse Productions (where Jordan Peele delivers his scary ass flicks as well) are behind the psychological horror film, which stars the Oscar winning actress as Sue Ann, a loner who keeps to herself in her quiet Ohio town. One day, Maggie (Diana Silvers) - a new teenager in town - goes to buy some booze for her and her friends, and Sue Ann sees the chance to make some unsuspecting, if younger, friends of her own.

She offers the kids the chance to avoid drinking and driving by hanging out in the basement of her home. But there are some house rules: One of the kids has to stay sober. Don’t curse. Never go upstairs. And call her “Ma.” Def seems like she would be good peoples, aside from inviting strangers into her basement but, whatevs. 

But as Ma’s hospitality starts to curdle into obsession, what began as a teenage dream turns into a terrorizing nightmare, and Ma’s place goes from the best place in town to the worst place on earth. And Octavia plays the hell out of this role.  We would say that's what Becky gets for stupidly chillin' in a stranger's basement but nobody deserves this.

Peep the recently released trailer below:

Ma also stars Juliette Lewis (August: Osage County) as Maggie’s mom, Luke Evans (Beauty and the Beast) as a local dad, Missi Pyle (Gone Girl) as his girlfriend, and McKaley Miller (TV’s Hart of Dixie), Corey Fogelmanis (TV’s Girl Meets World), Gianni Paolo (TV’s Power) and Dante Brown (Lethal Weapon TV series) as Maggie’s friends. 

Director Tate Taylor (The Help and Get On Up) will helm the film, written by Scotty Landes (Comedy Central’s Workaholics).

Get ready! Ma hits theaters May 31st. We're def going to see it!

Speaking of scary movies coming out of Blumhouse Productions....

We're super excited to see the YBF actress expand her repertoire as she's gearing up for the release of Jordan Peele's Us. She plays the female lead and she shared with the magazine how accepting the lead female role was a no-brainer.

“I’d walk off a cliff for Jordan Peele. I was madly in love with the mind of Jordan from the Key & Peele days, and I remember putting him on my ‘one day I’ll work with’ list. Then I saw Get Out. I saw it in the cinema five times in one month. I was just so fascinated by it. Then he approached me to do this film. He sent this script – I’m usually very slow at reading scripts. He sent it to me and in 24 hours I knew I would be insane to pass it up.”

She'll be starring opposite her Black Panther co-star Winston Duke, as well as Elisabeth Moss and Tim Heidecker in the second of Peele’s five-part social thriller series.

Here's a synopsis of the upcoming thriller:

Set in present day along the iconic Northern California coastline, Us, stars Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o as Adelaide Wilson, a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband, Gabe (Black Panther’s Winston Duke), and their two children (Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex) for an idyllic summer getaway. Haunted by an unexplainable and unresolved trauma from her past and compounded by a string of eerie coincidences, Adelaide feels her paranoia elevate to high-alert as she grows increasingly certain that something bad is about to befall her family. After spending a tense beach day with their friends, the Tylers (Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon), Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home to discover the silhouettes of four figures standing in their driveway. Us pits an ordinary American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.

Peele produces for his Monkeypaw Productions, alongside Monkeypaw creative director Ian Cooper, in the company’s first solo production venture. Also producing are Sean McKittrick and Jason Blum.

You can read Lupita's full interview with AnOther One mag here.

Us is the first film under Jordan's first-look deal with Universal Pictures and is the follow up Get Out, which was a huge hit at the box office, raking in $255 million worldwide. We expect Us to do the same, if not better.

If you haven't seen the trailer for Us, watch it HERE.

The flick will hit theaters March 19, 2019. Y'all ready?
