Originally published at The Green Man Review!

Beware: this review is dark and full of spoilers. As this is a critique, I’m assuming you’ve watched, so there’s plenty of specifics here. You have been warned.

Season 8 is all of that, writ in six episodes. Continue reading

Baltimore Screening Pass-palooza: “MA”!

Ready to get spooky? Well Octavia Spencer is coming, so get ready… Synopsis!

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.

Ready? Let’s go!

Constantly.” “I could show you everything if you stop being afraid of what you don’t understand.”These legs definitely used to be longer!” So I’m not surprised in the least that there’s a new figurine I hadn’t seen yet. And this one’s a beaut.
