Hereditary (MA 15+)

Hereditary movie poster

When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter's family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry. The more they discover, the more they find themselves trying to outrun the sinister fate they seem to have inherited. Making his feature debut, writer-director Ari Aster unleashes a nightmare vision of a domestic breakdown that exhibits the craft and precision of a nascent auteur, transforming a familial tragedy into something ominous and deeply disquieting, and pushing the horror movie into chilling new terrain with its shattering portrait of heritage gone to hell.

"Toni Collette does possibly the best work of her career...a film that, as cheesy this sounds, haunts its viewers, planting terrifying imagery in their head. It will make you hug your loved ones and maybe even call your mom. And you might even start sleeping with the lights on" - ROGEREBERT.COM

"takes the core haunting element of a spirit with a malevolent agenda and runs with it in a seemingly endless series of unexpected directions over two breathless hours of escalating terror that never slackens for a minute." - HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

"Collette's performance is staggering" - VARIETY

"takes its place as a new generation's The Exorcist -- for some, it will spin heads even more savagely" - TIME OUT
