Hereditary review by NDbportmanfan – A Very Captivating Thriller
A24 has one of the better track records in the business and Hereditary doesn’t disappoint. From the trailers, I gathered that this would be an okay horror movie with annoying jump scares. After seeing the initial reviews I had to give this a try on opening weekend. I am happy that I did.
Hereditary is more of a slow-burning thriller with an interesting story and a stellar cast. Toni Collette is the stand out and she really carries this film through its weaker spots to hold the viewer’s attention. She plays a mother who has been through tragedy her whole life and will have to deal with more after her mother’s passing. The events that follow will test the whole family’s strength. Many of the scenes are dark much darker than I ever expected and they are even more impactful given how grounded this film is. This was simply exciting to watch; I was engrossed from beginning to end.
I have heard others say that this is too long given how long the movie takes to pick up. I disagree as the exposition really helps set up the tone of the family’s relationship which is critical to understand in a film like this.
If you love thrillers like Get Out or lite horrors such as A24’s The Witch than give this one a go.
Hereditary review by sushirocks2001 – Disturbing shocking amazing
This movie was amazing. The acting was top notch from every family member. They felt like a real family and when things happened to them it was heartbreaking and shocking. And wow, there is a breathtakingly disturbing scene that takes place in the first half that shocked the whole theater. Everyone was silent with their mouths hanging open. Also, the cinematography was stunning and original and made the film feel different than just your average horror movie. You can tell a lot of work and love went into this movie. Or rather, hate. And about the acting, Toni collete was the standout, with every screaming face looking very convincing and real. But The children actors were amazingly talented and the father was great as well. Ann dowd as Joan was great also. This movie has me thinking about it a lot which is a great sign. It is a great horror but also just plain drama as you as actually attached and invested in the story’s characters and everything that is done is done so wel.
Hereditary review by GROGtheNailer – Might be the best horror film ever made
I went to see this movie with my adult daughter since both of us really like the horror genre. No regrets, well worth the price of admission. This is a solid 9/10 and it may be the best horror movie we have seen and we have seen them all. I do not want to give anything away so I’ll keep it short. Great atmosphere, an awesome sense of foreboding, the acting was stellar and the story itself as it unfolds was amazing. You really should go see this movie.
Hereditary review by spacekidd_n7 – Still freaked out
Best horror movie I’ve seen in a really long time. And what’s crazy is that I don’t remember there being a single jump scare. I think maybe that’s why some people didn’t like it. I guess you could say this was a psychological horror, but I usually find those movies boring. This one really messed with my head, there are scenes that are seared into my brain. 3 days later I’m still seeing these disturbing images. I even had a really weird dream where I woke up because I felt something pull my big toe. In my dream, my room had like 10 different weird lamps and all I wanted to do was turn every single one on. Seriously man, this is why I’m writing this at like 4 in the morning. Was this movie based on actual stuff from the occult? That’s what it seems like. The ending was insane and felt like I was in a dream I couldn’t wake up from. Can’t wait to see it again lol.
Hereditary review by MickandRorty – Scariest Horror Film In Recent Memory
I highly recommend going into this movie not knowing anything about it, as I did. The movie is terrifying and does not use any jump scare tactics. You will squirm in your seat as you notice details going on in the background. The camera work/cinematography was incredible. An all-around fantastic horror movie that is sure to become a classic. It will stick with you and you will continue to analyze scenes in your head. I will definitely watch this one more time when it comes to bluray.
Hereditary review by Amthermandes – Artfully unnerving, borderline scarring
First of all, if anybody is accusing Hereditary of not being like The Exorcist, KNOCK IT OFF. You can’t compare modern horror to a horror, let alone a CLASSIC horror, that was made over 40 years ago. This is a different era for the horror genre, with a completely different audience. And so, while there are a few minor similarities, Hereditary stands alone in its entirety. It’s not like The Exorcist, and it never was intended to be. And that’s a good thing. But if anybody should be comparing films, I feel the film that most feels like Hereditary is “The Babadook,” despite its many and obvious differences. It’s also just as enjoyable.
Hereditary is about a family coping with a loss, an estranged grandmother with a mysterious background. They struggle to trust one another, and it seems from the start the relationships between them are damaged. There are trust issues, alongside paranoia. On top of it all, the mother starts to uncover a dreadful truth about their deceased matriarch. Things get creepy, and dark, and genuinely scary.
There are rave reviews out there, as well as negative, but the rating speaks for itself. How rare to find a modern horror to have above a 6.5 on IMDB, so obviously without having to see it, you should know the film is doing something right. And it is indeed.
The whole of it is unnerving. The atmosphere is chilling, much to the help of the score and excellent performances of all the actors. The flow and directing, on top of cinematography all play an effective part in the story, and is unique in its own way. I especially love the plot device of the miniatures, and how the family’s home from outside can be debated as real or a model, which invokes doubt of what is real and what is not.
Unfortunately, while I give this film high praise, I cannot love it. The director’s goal was to “upset audiences on a very deep level.” He not only succeeded in this, but he may have been too effective. This is NOT a “fun” movie. It will be disturbing to many, ESPECIALLY the religious. And do not bring children to it, unless you want a visit from child protective services.
On a personal note, it has been many years since I’ve been tempted to leave the theater during a film, and never before has it been a film that I was currently enjoying. And such it was with me for this film. I found myself emotionally attached, and those emotions were being ripped apart in such a way that I was becoming a tad upset, which hasn’t happened in a long time. I was enjoying it, yet at the same time, loathing what it was doing.
But everybody’s different. Can’t say many will share a similar experience. So I still recommend it, highly. But be warned, it gets crazy.
Hereditary review by bastille-852-731547 – Very Well-Acted but Slightly Erratic Horror Film
With its outstanding reviews, strong buzz, and creepily powerful marketing, “Hereditary” has come to theaters with far more buzz than the typical independent horror film. This can be chalked up at least in part to the outstanding track record and marketing efforts of indie distributor A24, whose other films tend to be of great quality. While not quite as great as last year’s horror film “It Comes At Night” from them, this is a solid film that has much to commend on its own merits.
It would practically be a crime to spoil this movie for the uninitiated, but all I will say is that the film tells the grim tale of a family struggling with the death of the matriarch (Toni Colette)’s mother. Things start to spiral out of control from there, in ways both expected and unexpected. Right from the first frames, talented first-time director Ari Aster grabs you with an intense and almost oppressive sense of psychological dread and never lets go until the finale. The ability to create such a feeling of dread and doom in a realistic–rather than cheesy or ludicrous–manner is truly commendable. The film’s simple music and score is its greatest instrument (no pun intended) in creating such a visceral personal feeling of deep unease. Unfortunately, such score also feels quite repetitive at times which occasionally can dilute its prospective impact late in the film–but it still generally works well. In particular, attempts to create emotional power with the score during the film’s more dramatic moments could have been improved. The film’s performances are very strong throughout, with a particular emphasis on Toni Colette. Colette nails the role of Annie, an artistic and grieving mother of two, with skillful precision. From her facial expressions to her visceral processing of grief, her performance feels wholly authentic and impactful. The film does feel consistently intense and scary throughout, and credit must be given to Aster for not emphasizing the ultimate tired and lazy horror cliché–the jump scene. (There is only one real jump scene, but it is properly timed to be truly unexpected and quite well-done.)
Despite is positive qualities, “Hereditary” does have some flaws as well. The film’s pacing can be a bit of a mixed bag. On one hand, I truly appreciate Aster’s intention to frame the film within the context of a slow-burn, tense family drama to promote the establishment of thoughtful character development and associated thinking. On the other hand, this pacing means that the horror elements often feel a bit rushed near the end. In particular, the film’s last ten minutes feel like they are paced outrageously fast–which may, to some degree, reduce the psychological impact of such scenes. Also, while the film contains many original elements, its frantic finale also deploys some rather common and predictable motifs in the horror genre without creating a spin on such elements to differentiate them from other common representations within horror movies. That said, this is a well-made film that fans of the genre will likely appreciate–although it remains to be seen whether mainstream audiences will, as the film may be too slow for much of its runtime for many of them.
Hereditary review by Mr_Ectoplasma – Visceral and dreadful by turns
In “Hereditary,” an artist mother grapples with the death of her mother, a mysterious woman from whom she was long estranged. Her death triggers a succession of tragedies and bizarre events that threaten to unravel her family.
I’ll keep major plot points unwritten here as I feel the less you know about this film, the better. Multiplex popcorn moviegoers are likely to be bored into tedium by “Hereditary” (one patron complained about how terribly boring the film was after the screening I was in), and to some degree I can understand why, as the film does sag a bit in the middle; not nearly to the point of derailment though, and what precedes it and follows it more than make up for an feet-dragging.
Like many of the indie horrors of this era, “Hereditary” takes the less-is-more route and reaps significant rewards. It’s minimalist but effective, its horror entangled in a family drama that offers enough shocks on its own. The film is expertly photographed and extremely atmospheric; the Utah landscapes and the cavernous craftsman home where most of the action takes place are bewitching; underpinning it all is a simplistic but effective score.
While there are some emotionally-shocking moments in the first two-thirds of the film, the last act is where it really cuts loose, giving way to utter pandemonium; even still, there is a subdued nature to the most fantastical elements. Writer-director Ari Aster clearly took cues from “Rosemary’s Baby” in writing the film, and whether or not he intended, he wears this influence on his sleeve; visually, it at times recalls Charles Laughton’s “The Night of the Hunter.” However, the insanity of “Hereditary” as it builds to its fever pitch is anchored in Toni Collette and Gabriel Byrne’s core performances; Collette’s range is especially made use of here. The younger actors- Alex Wolff, who plays their son, and Milly Shapiro, who plays their eccentric daughter-are also impressive, and Wolff effectively portrays some of the script’s most emotionally wrought material.
While the film does seem to run itself slightly thin in the middle, I never once lost an ounce of interest, which is a testament to the multitude of strengths working under the surface. While “Hereditary” certainly doesn’t reinvent the wheel, it evokes a crescendo of dread that is effectively disrupted by more visceral terrors. It is not a perfect film, but it’s easily the best horror offering I’ve seen this year thus far.
Hereditary review by Riveraphillip – Pure emotional terrorism of the highest order. Wow!
Let me start off by saying I have been a fan of horror for a long time. I am 35 years old and have seen my share of horror films but nothing prepared me for the emotional workout this film provided. I have never experienced the range of emotion this movie draws out. I cried, laughed, shrieked, felt pity, sympathy, shocked, jumped and watched in horror as the slow burn of a plot turned the screws.
Ari Aster’s phenomenal directorial debut is an old-schooled filmed horror movie dressed up as a family drama, that if one can get into it will be blessed with one the greatest horror films of all time and one of the best films of the year so far.
Hereditary review by Shawn Wu – Shocking and Beautiful
Hereditary was a terrifying blend of reality and the supernatural, with the horror stemming from the realism. The film was most terrifying when wallowing in the stress of tragic events and their effects on a strained family dynamic. Toni Collette and Alex Wolff delivered gut-wrenching performances as mother and son faced with impossible situations. The film also continuously hinted at an ambitious mythology that provided suspense, but in the last five minutes it felt the need to tie up the mystery with an over-explained sequence that read more like a conclusion to a Law and Order episode than the end to an otherwise excellent film. In all, the film was shocking and beautiful, but suffered from its last minute tonal shift.
Hereditary review by Okayranger – Give it some time and it might impress you
Hereditary is over 2 hours and I think you really feel that runtime, It keeps you at an arms length up until the last 30 minutes when it just goes balls to the wall insane. Throughout the first hour and a half basically it is very slow and very boring with only a few scares mixed in to keep you interested. For me personally It pushed me right to the brink of Irritation and boredom multiple times, You have to want to like this movie because if you don’t these few and far between scares will not hold you attention. As for the last bit of the movie it has some of the most haunting imagery that will stick in you head for a long time. You should see this if you want something truly Unique and unsettling, But be ready to put in a little work staying focused when the movie doesn’t really give you a lot to work with.
Also the acting, cinematography, and set design were all amazing. One last thing I appreciated was how the movie is willing to let you miss a scare or something creepy in the background so more observant viewers really feel rewarded it doesn’t feel like its pandering and doing a close up shot on everything spooky. It’s just like a nice little bonus for people really paying attention.
