Tate Taylor’s MA in Cinemas Friday May 31 – Get Out, Whiplash, Split, BlacKkKlansman, Paranormal Activity: Blumhouse’s Best Movies

28 May 2019

Blumhouse Productions’ Ma stars Octavia Spencer 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.

To celebrate Ma’s release on May 31st, we’re going to take a look at some of Blumhouse Productions’ best movies...



Get Out
The directorial debut from Jordan Peele, Get Out was a hit both commercially and critically. Without spoiling anything, the plot follows Chris Washington an African-American photographer who agrees to meet the caucasian family of his girlfriend, Rose. Initially off-put by strange and worrisome comments made by Rose’s parents, it only gets worse for Chris as things get weirder and weirder.



From the director of La La Land and First Man, Whiplash follows the story of Andrew Neimann, an aspiring drummer attempting to learn under the ruthless teacher, Terence Fletcher. Fletcher’s abusive teaching style slowly wears down Andrew and pushes him to the very limit, eventually culminating in an intense and powerful ending. JK Simmons delivers an oscar winning performance as the terrifying conductor which, combined with the unique directing style of Damien Chazelle, creates an incredible cinematic experience.



Split stars James McAvoy as Kevin Wendell, a man suffering from dissociative identity disorder, a mental illness that means Kevin has 24 different ‘personalities’. When one of Kevin’s darker personalities kidnaps a young girl called Casey and her 2 friends, the girls must navigate Kevin’s different personalities to enable escape. McAvoy delivers a stunning performance as he is able to successfully demonstrate the wildly different personalities with ease, and ensures this film is hugely intense and thoroughly entertaining.



BlacKkKlansman depicts the true story of Ron Stallworth, the first African-American police officer in the Colorado Springs Police Department. With the help of Flip Zimmerman, Stallworth attempts to infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan from the inside. Directed by the legendary Spike Lee, BlacKkKlansman delivers a terrific crime/drama littered with hilariously funny comedic moments.



Paranormal Activity
Following in the footsteps of the highly successful Blair Witch Project, Paranormal Activity was filmed entirely in the style of ‘found footage’. This rare and creative style ensured the film was far more realistic and thus far more terrifying. The ‘found footage’ style also allowed the film to be made on the tiny budget of $15,000 which ensured the hugely popular film grossed 193 million dollars worldwide and spawned three sequels.
