Blumhouse and director Tate Taylor
will be unleashing their new psychological horror-thriller Ma starring Octavia Spencer
this May. The trailer hit a few weeks back, and a ton of people I know are way too excited for the movie. As much as I'm glad to see Spencer take the lead in a horror-thriller, I thought it was going to be another disposable PG-13 movie for the teen crowd. But today it looks like we have word that the movie will not be a weak PG-13 thriller but in fact, an R-rated horror movie. Nice. Yes, the MPAA has just slapped the film with an R-rating for "violent/disturbing material, language throughout, sexual content, and for teen drug and alcohol use."
Violent and disturbing material, you say? I'm in. Language throughout and sexual content? Works for me. Teen drug and alcohol use? Meh. Makes me feel a bit icky. But still,
