Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Despite Sandra Oh's typically strong performance and glimmers of potential from writer-director Iris K. Shim, Umma is a cliché-ridden missed opportunity.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Umma is a horror movie about a Korean American woman (Sandra Oh) and her 16-year-old daughter (Fivel Stewart), who raise bees and sell honey. When the woman receives the ashes of her own mother, spooky things start happening. While it's not perfect, it has strong performances and effective early scares. Violence includes a child in peril and dialogue about the child having to hold a broken electrical cord, experiencing painful shocks. There are jump scares, scary ghosts, a woman dragged by a ghost, and a woman suffocated by a ghost. There's also hard slapping on the face and a foot stepping on a baby bird. Infrequent strong language includes single uses of "f---ing," "bulls--t," "s--t," and "bitch." Adults drink bottles of beer with dinner.
