The New Movie Hereditary

I saw the psychological horror movie Hereditary today, and it was a solid and chilling film. This film was a slow-burner during the 2hours, but it does delivered the chills.

Toni Collette delivered a great performance.

It’s not the type of horror film that most people expects.

I recommend everyone to see it.

I give it a grade of an B+.


Just got out of the theater. Toni Collette’s performance is riveting. Oscar worthy, really - she’s that good.

Newcomer Milly Shaprio is exceptional as Collette’s disturbed daughter.

I agree that the dread here is more emotional/psychological than visceral, relying on a show build up of tension as opposed to jump scares. The ending of the film felt like a bit of a letdown, however, almost like an afterthought.

Overall, not scary so much as disturbing. The interaction between the family members and the general sense of mental instability are more unsettling than any monsters. Worth seeing, but not nightmare-inducing.

I agree. I guess that’s why it have a CinemaScore of an “D.”
