Bottom line is that “Ma” sadly can’t keep up with some other genre representatives, who are just bubbling over with new ideas and refresh the wheel of horror movies. However, if you can accept that you are only presented with a mediocre film, which nevertheless takes one or the other surprising turn, then this will be a guilty pleasure to watch. The narrative pattern fits to the story, but be prepared that it will drift to absurdity in the last quarter of the run time. The final twist seems like a last concession to the whole genre, which however won’t satisfy the viewer when the credits roll onto the screen. Nonetheless, “Ma” is a really accessible movie, which probably arouses the interest of more people than just horror fans and makes you feel welcome at “Ma’s”!
