Sandra Oh Plays a Haunted, Technophobic Beekeeper in First Trailer for New Horror Film Umma

Killing Eve’s Sandra Oh stars as a technophobic beekeeper terrorized by an evil entity in the first trailer for new supernatural horror film Umma.

Produced by Sam Raimi (The Evil Dead, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness), the film centers on Amanda (Oh), a Korean immigrant who runs a small rural farm with her daughter, Chris (Atypical’s Fivel Stewart) in the film. American campaign.

Frightened by modern technology, Amanda lights her house with candles and lanterns at night and does not allow Chris to have a cell phone or television. In the clip, she freaks out when a stranger drives a car onto her property. But her motor vehicle turns out to be the least of her worries when it delivers her mother’s remains, and Amanda finds herself haunted by more than the past.

“Your mother is dead,” the unknown character (played by Tom Yi) explains in the teaser, as he lifts a large trunk onto a table in Amanda’s house. “Her anger will grow as long as she remains in this box.

“What kind of girl abandons her own mother? he thinks aloud, heeding Amanda’s order to leave. So far, so disturbing, huh?

As Amanda begins to have strange visions – bees swarming the windows, imagining her mother staring at her as she hangs out the laundry…you know, the usual stuff – she and her daughter are drifting apart.

After some persuasion, however, Amanda tells Chris that she “remembers so much screaming” from her childhood and admits that she deliberately kept her away from her “tormented” family.

Over time, Amanda’s behavior becomes increasingly violent and erratic as her mother’s presence consumes her thoughts. Can she free herself from her spell before it’s too late? You’ll have to watch to find out.

Written and directed by Iris K. Shim, the film also stars Danielle K. Gordon, Hana Marie Kim, Odeya Rush, MeeWha Alana Lee and Dermot Mulroney.

Umma, titled after the Korean word for “mother”, hits US cinemas on Friday March 18 and in the UK on March 25. In the meantime, check out our list of the best horror movies of all time.
