Hereditary is a horror masterpiece that is being described as the next Exorcist.
When Annie Graham’s (played by Toni Collette) mother dies she and her family begin to unravel as they discover a dark secret about their ancestry and try to run from their sinister fate.
While most horror films rely on gore and jump scares, Hereditary uses silence, plot twist, and raw human emotion to leave the audience unsettled.
This film is a rollercoaster of emotion that shows a realistic representation of people themselves. While the storyline is based around the supernatural the real horror is the humanity that is portrayed by the all-star cast.
The cinematography can only be described as amazing. It was just the cherry on top that only added to the overall vibe of the film.
Overall Hereditary is a refreshing take on horror that will leave even the bravest people needing to sleep with the lights on, and best described by the guy sitting at the back of my cinema “what the f***k” in the best way possible.
