OCTAVIA SPENCER'S MACHIAVELIAN VILLAIN

Spencer's new film is a psychological thriller, in which a woman with a secret befriends a group of teenagers, luring them into her web of deceit with alcohol.

Sue Anne, the woman the teens call 'Ma,' starts to manipulate them to get revenge for wrongs she feels were done to her in the past.

Will "Ma" get Octavia Spencer her first nomination for Best Actress?

OCTAVIA SPENCER: "I CAN'T...I CAN'T DO THIS:"

For Spencer, 46, the hardest part of the shoot came when she had to do a scene in which she seduces one of the teens, Andy Hawkins, played by Corey Fogelmanis.

"Well, he looks 15 but he was really 18 but it was still very, very, very strange. It was all. I was in love so that's when you have to call on the character, you know, 'cause Octavia, I'm like, 'I can't...I can't do this,'" she confessed.

THE CHALLENGE OF PLAYING A KILLER

For Spencer, Sue Anne herself was a challenge, a manipulative, disturbed woman, whose past traumas explode into violence.

"I had to do a lot of research because she has a couple of issues that I had to work out and I thought, 'Oh, this is symptomatic of this and I don't wanna give it away'... But I was freaked out by some of the things she does," she said.

Will "Ma" get Octavia Spencer her first nomination for Best Actress? We are rooting for her.
