Special thanks, once more, to the upcoming maestro of chills, Jordan Peele! Each time we’re at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, we can’t help but mentally prepare for a spine-tingling encounter with some enigmatic figure lurking with a pair of suspiciously sharp golden scissors up their sleeves. While many were left perplexed by Peele’s unsettling follow-up to “Get Out,” we remain convinced it stands as one of the supreme horror flicks of the past decade, a gory allegory about the fear of the unknown that possesses an enduring resonance. Peele serves up both terror and jittery giggles as the Thomas family (portrayed by the incomparable Lupita Nyong’o, who surely deserved an Oscar, and Winston Duke) enjoy a leisurely vacation in the vicinity of Santa Cruz. Following a bizarre encounter on the shoreline, uninvited guests sporting crimson jumpsuits come a-knocking at their door. This one’s got layers upon layers to dissect, that’s for sure.
Looking at Google they give it a 3.2
Ma is a 2019 American psychological horror film, co-produced and directed by Tate Taylor. It stars Octavia Spencer, Juliette Lewis, Diana Silvers, Corey Fogelmanis, Gianni Paolo, McKaley Miller and Luke Evans and follows a group of teenagers who befriend a lonely middle-aged woman. Rotten Tomatoes says, “A lonely middle-aged woman befriends some teenagers and decides to let them party in the basement of her home. But there are some house rules: One of the kids has to stay sober, don’t curse, and never go upstairs. They must also refer to her as 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.”
