Welcome to Ma’s!

What starts out as the perfect place to drink for a group of high schoolers in a small town quickly turns more sinister, and Octavia Spencer is at the center of it.

The Oscar winner, 46, stars in Ma as Sue Ann, a loner in town who grows close to the kids when she lets them use her basement to party. The only rule? “Don’t go upstairs.”

While the arrangement starts out as a dream for the group of teenagers, including new kid Maggie (Diana Silvers), things get weirder when Ma — as she asks the kids to call her — becomes obsessed with the teens. Maggie soon starts to feel creeped out and slowly persuades the rest of the group to stop hanging out in the basement, which doesn’t sit well with Ma.

“Don’t make me drink alone,” she says menacingly in a video sent to the kids.

The trailer then jumps through a series of disturbing images, showing that Ma knows the kid’s parents from her own time in high school and hinting that she starts taking possession of them with silver chains around their necks. It also previews the horror to come, and some of Ma’s victims.

The movie reunites Spencer with her The Help director Tate Taylor and also stars Luke Evans, Juliette Lewis, Missi Pyle, McKaley Miller, Corey Fogelmanis, Gianni Paolo, and Dante Brown.

Ma slashes into theaters May 31.
