Ari Aster -- whose short films are amazing; highly recommended -- makes his feature film debut with Hereditary, a remarkably well made family tragedy of nightmarish proportions. Hereditary has the elements of an effective horror film and is chock full of terrifying imagery, but Aster knows to keep the characters and their shattering relationships at the heart of it all. It's a feel-bad horror story that's certain to linger for days and weeks after.

Suspenseful atmosphere wasted on a tedious rehash of older better horror movies.

Hereditary - Review

I'm speechless...

Honestly, where do I begin with this movie? I'll try my best, but there will be no promises. It's been awhile for any horror movie ever to leave me traumatize. While I wouldn't call it scary, just unnerving and tragic; you will never forget it.

There is no jump scares or any typical story about a ghost haunting - nope, instead we get a slow-burn nightmare about a family quietly going insane together.

Toni Collette and Alex Wolff are forces to be reckoned with. Both deliver powerhouse performances, which only added to the intensity. Not leaving out Milly Shapiro, Gabriel Byrne and even Ann Dowd for their superb acting.

This is Ari Aster first feature length film and already his on my radar. Aster directing and way of building tension is crazy good. Shut up and...

Evil Is Relative

There has been so many critics raving over this horror film, that I was afraid it couldn't possibly meet my expectations. Early on, I admit I was worried as the film starts off a bit slow - Annie (Toni Collette) is dealing with the death of her mother - a mother she has been estranged from for quite awhile, only coming to her side when dementia and illness force her to. It also affects her family, especially her daughter Charlie (Milly Shapiro - in a breakout performance), a shy, lonely child who was closest with her.

The background setup takes awhile - Annie is an artist who works in detailed miniatures, her husband (Gabriel Byrne) is distant through supportive and her son Peter (Alex Wolff) is a bit of stoner. We get a general sense of who this family is and how they get along - whil...
