Sony Pictures has released the official Umma trailer for its upcoming horror thriller, starring Golden Globe winner Sandra Oh. The film is currently slated to arrive in theaters on Friday, March 18.
The video, which you can check out below along with the poster, features Oh as an overprotective mother who keeps her daughter away from technology and other people on a secluded farm. However, with the sudden arrival of her own mother’s remains from South Korea, the quiet and serene life that she has been protecting gets turned into a nightmare, due to the grudging curse it bears.
