Hereditary- new horror movie

Recommended Posts



that kid.....yow. creeps me out.

from the people who made the witch. gonna be watching it. the witch was pretty stinking unsettling. no resolution or end. just left you hanging through the whole movie thinking that something bad was going to happen and then the movie just ended. hitchcock said, "there is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it" and i think these guys figured out how keep that anticipation going.

The Witch is one of those "great movies no one has ever seen". I used to want a baby goat as a pet.

Loved it, seen it 3 times already.  Great movie, good call.

Saw Hereditary last night and...welp let's just say it lived up to the hype. I'm still trying to process some scenes 14 hours later. This is a film where it's definitely best to know as little as possible going into it.

It definitely has similar qualities as The Witch. If you liked The Witch and the general sense of overwhelming dread as you watch a family fall apart (if it was ever together in the first place), you'll love Hereditary!

Great horror movie is all I can say. It's hard to discuss without spoiling too much. I can't wait to see it again.

Saw it yesterday. It's not that good, IMHO. Similar to Get Out. More of a psychotic thriller than horror. It's unintentionally funny in many spots, the acting is subpar, the plot isn't really revealed until the end and even then you'll be asking Google, it's more creepy than scary, and it's overall just very flat. If you loved Get Out you'll like it, if you thought Get Out was overrated, you'll think this is too.

Lots of buzz for Toni Collette being nominated for Best Actress so, yeah, different strokes I guess if you thought the acting was subpar. I can understand not liking the "slow burn" aspect but wow, I thought the acting was as good as it gets all around.

I think the negative reaction from some subset of audience is because this isn't your standard horror movie in the sense that it doesn't hold your hand with the generic horror movie tropes. There isn't a well defined "bad guy" throughout the film. There isn't a "hero". There isn't a big showdown between said bad guy and hero. There aren't 30 jump scares. There isn't a standard horror score or sound design. I think this is all part of what makes it so brilliant.

And I can't help but lol at the "it's not horror" takes.

There's literally a floating possessed woman graphically sawing her own head off at one point lol

I hate jump scare horror, so it was not what I was wanting. I'm all for dark, eerie, psychological films but this was just dull. Her kitchen table scene was great, I'll give you that. But the rest was her running around making dumb faces. Yes there was gore, but it wasn't trying to scare you nor was it horrifying. It was just creepy and odd. More like an M Knight Shamalalamamalaalalan movie.

I enjoyed Get Out but also thought it was very overrated.  I really loved Hereditary for the most part however the last two or three minutes really took me out of the film and I did not like.  I feel like they had an excellent moment to end the film and the moment it came I thought “that is perfect.” Then they decided to add that last scene, maybe it was just me but I did not feel it was needed.

Thankfully in the day and a half since seeing it and thinking about it I have definitely decided the good stuff far outweighed it for me and I do want to see it again.  Now I just find it mildly annoying but it definitely took me out of the film in a way I think was unintended.

I agree, the acting was superb...expect for the son’s crying, that was bad.
