Film of the month: MA – 4 stars

Film review

A psychological horror from director Tate Taylor, the man responsible for The Help and The Girl on the Train, Ma is a fantastic piece of escapist fun that perfectly balances the absurd with the disturbing. The end result is a movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat and a story that gleefully winks at the audience whilst delivering some pretty out-there moments. Octavia Spencer steals the show as Ma, a woman who is convinced by a group of underage teenagers to buy them some alcohol. Convincing them to drink in her basement to ‘stay safe’, Ma soon becomes the go-to venue for kids looking to party in town, but there’s something sinister going on when it comes to Ma’s motives.

I think that "Back To The Future" is the greatest film of all time and will fight anyone who challenges that!
