Character and Performance Akin to Kathy Bates in Misery
A group of partying teens seem to have struck illegal booze pay dirt when they get an older woman to buy alcohol for them. But wait there's more... she also offers up her basement for their illicit activities. Certainly they don't think it's all NSA (that would be "no strings attached" not the "National Security Agency"). Of course there were strings attached as they found out they couldn't get rid of this crazy woman.
Octavia Spencer delivers a performance that puts her close to Kathy Bates in Misery. She is certified nuts and, as much as she was the antagonist, it was hard to fully hate her. Her backstory had something to do with that but also just her. She was so pitiful and lonely that it was hard to rage at her for her psychotic behavior.
In another movie Ma (Octavia Spencer) would've been the star: an easygoing motherly type that lets teens experiment but also parts wisdom and guidance upon them to help them find their way. But this wasn't that type of movie though it could have been. Instead we got the psychopath version and I'm OK with that.
