Blumhouse Hit “Ma” Gets Home Video Release Date

Blumhouse’s surprise hit Ma, starring Oscar winner Octavia Spencer, is heading home.

The film follows Sue Ann (Spencer), a lonely woman in a quiet Ohio town.  When she is asked by a teen girl to help her purchase booze, Sue Ann decides to extend the connection by offering her home for the party.  The only stipulation is that they follow some simple rules: someone has to stay sober, no cursing, never go upstairs, and always call her “Ma.”  Though things start out fine, Ma’s basement quickly transcends from the best place in town to the worst place on Earth.

Ma did exceptionally well at the box office, especially considering its tiny budget.  Now, thanks to both Blu-Ray and DVD packaging, fans of the film get to enjoy over twenty minutes of bonus content including an alternate ending not seen in theaters.

Directed by Tate Taylor and co-starring Juliette Lewis, Luke Evans, Missi Pyle, McKaley Miller, Corey Fogelmanis, Gianni Paolo, and Dante Brown, Ma is set to hit digital outlets on August 20.

About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
