Oscar winner Octavia Spencer will send chills down your spine in the new thriller from Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Entertainment, MA coming to theaters May 31!

About MA:

Everybody’s welcome at Ma’s. But good luck getting home safe.

Oscar® winner Octavia Spencer stars as Sue Ann, a loner who keeps to herself in her quiet Ohio town. One day, she is asked by Maggie, a new teenager in town (Diana Silvers, Glass), 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.”

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.

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.

From Tate Taylor, the acclaimed director of The Help and Get On Up, and blockbuster producer Jason Blum (Get Out, Halloween, The Purge series) comes a thriller anchored by a daring and unexpected performance from Spencer, one of the most powerful actors of her generation.

Ma is written by Scotty Landes (Comedy Central’s Workaholics), is produced by Blum for his Blumhouse Productions, by Taylor, and by John Norris (executive producer, Get On Up), and is executive produced by Spencer, Couper Samuelson, Jeanette Volturno, and Robin Fisichella.

HALLOWEEN | Trailer Released!

HWN_Tsr1Sheet_RGB_1This October, Michael Myers returns.

Universal Pictures will release Trancas International Films, Blumhouse Productions and Miramax’s Halloween on Friday, October 19, 2018.

Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

Master of horror John Carpenter executive produces and serves as creative consultant on this film, joining forces with cinema’s current leading producer of horror, Jason Blum (Get Out, Split, The Purge, Paranormal Activity).  Inspired by Carpenter’s classic, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film, and Green also directs.

Halloween is also produced by Malek Akkad, whose Trancas International Films has produced the Halloween series since its inception, and Bill Block (Elysium, District 9).  In addition to Carpenter and Curtis, Green and McBride will executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner.  Ryan Freimman also serves in that role.

Fascination With Horror Movies Sets Stage For TRUTH OR DARE

TOD_Tsr1Sheet_RGB_1Get ready for a creepy tale on Friday the 13th! “Truth or Dare” arrives in theaters to scare your pants off in April.

The movie is produced by horror movie mastermind Jason Blum, whose company Blumhouse Productions was behind the 2017 blockbusters “Get Out” and “Split.”

In this new supernatural thriller, a harmless game of “Truth or Dare” among a group of college friends turns deadly when someone – or something – begins to punish those who tell a lie or refuse the dare.

The film, directed by Jeff Wadlow (“Kick-Ass 2”), stars Lucy Hale (“Pretty Little Liars”), Tyler Posey (“Teen Wolf”), Violett Beane (“The Flash”), Sophia Taylor Ali (“Grey’s Anatomy”), Nolan Gerard Funk (MTV’s “Awkward”), and Hayden Szeto.

If you like sinister, creepy and hair-raising flicks, you probably don’t want to miss this one. A look at the movie trailer promises to keep your heart racing and adrenaline pumping – a signature effect of Blum films.

Blum has developed the perfect formula for success, turning small budget films into a horror movie gold mine with such hits as “Insidious,” “The Purge,” “Happy Death Day,” “Unfriended,” “Sinister,” and “Creep,” which have grossed over $2 billion worldwide. His first big hit, “Paranormal Activity” was his biggest profit-maker. Produced with a $15,000 budget, it made more than $193 million worldwide.

Why are his movies such a big success? Because he loves horror movies – when they’re well done.

“A lot of horror movies get made by people who don’t really like them, so they don’t respect them,” says Blum.

Even though he usually produces his films for less than $5 million, he always tries to deliver a great story with compelling characters and good acting.

“Horror is great storytelling with scary elements on top of it, but if you don’t have great storytelling, you can have all the scares in the world, but the movie won’t work.”

Don’t miss “Truth or Dare” in theaters on April 13.
