    Anyone notice what looks to be one or two cult members in the opening scene? Under the treehouse, on the bottom left corner of the shot as it pans right? And how Annie positions the miniature of Granny after Peter and Charlie go to the party? It's almost exactly the way Peter was creepily standing outside Annie's bedroom as she's wailing screaming and crying. And all the pics or shots of heads before Charlie lost hers.

    I’ll talk around this so I don’t spoil anything: The last 20 minutes of HEREDITARY is RELENTLESS. The slow burn tempo of this movie has a series of terrifying events and a sense of mounting horror during these 20 minutes that blew me away. Enough said.

    I watch zero horror movies as of late. The last horror movie I watched out of curiosity was Annabelle (curious for The Conjuring but not anymore) n As Above So Below (also curious due to the trailer back then) and I watched them at night. Since then I don’t do horror anymore. Only horror I enjoy is anime horror. If u do horror movie reviews I’ll gladly watch ur reviews and spoiler reviews for them too. Cause (non anime) horror movies are 100% no way for me. Cool video bud

    This movie made me so uncomfortable. Edge of my seat, eyes glued to the screen. I wanted to look away but I couldn't. I was in shock so many times. I hated how it made me feel but that's why this movie is so amazing. It actually scared me, first time ever I felt genuine fear from a movie as opposed to the usual jolt/shock or disgust I get from usual horror movies. And I am so disappointed and angry that it got shunned completely at the Oscars even though it was the best movie of 2018

    Awful film!!! Not worth even 1 minute of your time unless you just want a scare with a plain story. I do not recommend it for 3 main reasons.
    1: story contains numerous flaws and pointless turns
    2: dialogue is 2/10
    3: the main plot or even motivation to write the film is boring, predictable and gives absolutely no satisfaction upon watching the idea of the writer
    4: shallow unrelatable characters
    A big plus is the acting I do agree that it was exceptionally good.
    As I stated before if you’re into a quick scare without any strings attached then watch otherwise move along

      Really? , the acting was really really good , the story maybe it's a little bit too hard to understand it , cause there's a lot of details in this movie that probably you didn't notice , but heyy, it's your opinion , maybe you just like kind of horror movie with jumpscares.

    I hate jumpscares with a passion and have been wishing for a horror movie with zero jumpscares ever since I got into horror fiction, focused on scaring you instead of startling you and THIS IS THAT MOVIE!!! Finally! There are NO jumpscares in this movie (maybe one moment will startle you but it's not that loud and doesn't have jumpscare music), just messed up ideas, implications and imagery. It should get an A+ for that alone

Amazingly thought out and so realistic and relatable in a unrelateable horrifically disturbing and twisted. I love it. If u don’t u have absolutely 0 taste in what REAL horror is.

  • Alice Brenneman
    Alice Brenneman 27 days ago

    Viewers, stop digging further. There is no deep meaning behind the movie. It has stupid plot holes all over the place. Which mother on earth would force her teenage son to bring their wired/whatever-challenged 13-old daughter, who is seriously allergic to nuts, to go anywhere, let alone a freaking high school party where she already suspects that alcohol would be there? And in which freaking high school party there would be a cake baked and served, with that crazy amount of nuts? (Remember that chopping nuts shot?) Chris, can you seriously think these plots were thought through?
    Even if this cult is so amazingly manipulative that can twist all people's mind and explain all these unreasonable behaviors, then why do they wait till now to wake up their king? If they are so capable, shouldn't they have already done so when they first tried?
    Yes, the acting is amazing. Thumb up to all actors. Other than that, this move is a shit. If you haven't watched this movie, and you care about your time, pick any other movie, seriously any other movie.
    A24 is a shitty studio and just wants to make a few bucks with a low budget and cost horror movie. Just like The Witch, the plots of their movie never made a god damn sense. Somehow, with amazing acting and nice cinematic shots, they make their horror movies seem to be artistic which are truly not. In this way, their movies always got good reviews from the hippy and pretentious reviewers from screening at pretentious film festivals. But the mass audience is with true wisdom. That's why their movies are always terribly reviewed by the general audience. That's why after one or two weeks in the theater their movies are sent straight to streaming.

      Toni Collette should have won an Oscar for her performance, nominations for horror are very rare, Ellen Burstyn was nominated for the Exorcist. I thought Essie Davis for the Babadook was also deserving of a nomination, her and Collette create an uneasiness that never leaves you, you feel their dread.

    • Del Banks

      +Zombie Killer I conclude that you're just a bitter individual. There was absolutely character development. Agreeably, there wasn't enough, but there's no way in HELL you can dismiss Toni Colette in this movie.
      This may come as a shock to you, but the father wasn't supposed to do anything. Why, because most families don't confront each other or intervene when it's too late. The result is that their problems often worsen or reach an inevitable point of no return.
      Common sense, which I assume you were looking for, is hardly a thing in most horror movies. That's kinda the point. Horror movies are often a blueprint for what not to do or what to avoid. You just lost that or you're handling your frustration completely wrong.

    • Ahcheenui Utai
      Ahcheenui Utai 9 days ago +1

      To everyone in the comments thinking this was an Oscar bait movie....NO. it's far from it, this is a strong genre movie and the Oscars don't look well upon these kind of films. Toni Collette was amazing in this movie, the audience saw an amazing performance. But we all knew deep down it wouldn't get nominated, and because we knew, that eliminates it from being oscar bait. That's why I haven't watched the Oscars in years because they only consider what's popular and go from there. I hope in the future that they'll stop this award ceremony, unless they IMPROVE it. The Grammys actually impressed me this year as opposed to last year. Lets hope the Oscars will do that soon

    I think the movie does a good job with the individual sections, but when trying to mash them together it just blew itself up(spoilers ahead)
    Like, the change of pacing in the end just comes out of nowhere, and the story goes from family drama to an entire sub-plot about Satan just getting thrown at the spotlight
    In the ultimate ending, nothing about that family really mattered anymore, aside from "possessed grandma dies and now lil bitchboy gets possessed too"

    I am a massive fan of Hereditary. I’ve been a horror movie fan since I was about 10, 11? And chris mentioned how many f-cked up horror movies he’s seen, like French ones. I have also seen truly horrific and inhuman movies as well and I agree that Hereditary is one horror movie that sticks out from the rest. I felt like when I first watched it, I didn’t realize what I was watching I guess? I knew it was a horror and I had read the movie’s plot online, saw the trailer and what not, but that didn’t give me any real idea of what i was about to watch, they were careful to keep things pretty vague. With many horror movies, it’s incredibly easy to figure out exactly what you’re going to watch. I think that’s why the genre is disliked so much (same with romance). There’s really nothing that can be done in a horror flick that hasn’t already been done a thousand times before, which makes the genre itself predictable. But Hereditary is just fucking awesome. At the end I seriously didn’t know how to react. I was just in shock, I have finally watched a horror movie that has terrified me to the core. Forever in my top5 horror movies!

      Hereditary is a fantastic movie horror or not. Easily one of the best if not THE best picture of 2018. Toni Collette gives a riviting performance and honestly everyone is excellent in it. I do not scare easily but I slept with the lights on after seeing it. Definitely deserves multiple veiwings!

    I just don't understand. This movie was so slow paced, and the end had me shaking my head. The ONLY redeeming quality is Toni Collette's performance was great. I felt absolute NO sense of dread because Toni's character is the only one who I felt any sympathy for, probably because she was the only good actor/actress. The rest were stale and maybe passable at best. I am admittedly very desensitized, so that may have a lot to do with my feelings about this movie. To me, a movie like Requiem For A Dream is more terrifying than this, because that movie is based in reality and things that can really happen.
    You mention that you like how you could understand the story. To me, this story is very convoluted. Maybe it would be easier to follow on a second view, but I refuse to watch this movie again. Once I understood it in the ending, I was just thinking to myself... "Why? Who gives a shit about ANY of this?" One of the 8 kings of hell. Who caaaaaares? And WHY should we care about this story? That's what baffles me. I will give it credit for having some balls to try and be somewhat creative with it's visuals, but it just doesn't do it for me at all, and I will never understand why it was so good to so many people. There was absolutely nothing in this movie that made me feel even a little bit uncomfortable. Even the supernatural stuff that was supposed to scare the casual horror fans who just want monster shit, had no effect on me.
    Lastly, you mentioned Stir Of Echoes. THAT is one of the most underrated horror movies of all time. That is the kind of movie that does have some supernatural aspects, but it balances it with just enough realism, and watching Kevin Bacon nearly slip into madness while his wife feels completely helpless to do anything, is pure epicness. That one also had some really disturbing imagery that I still sometimes think about to this day, and a fantastic ending that actually felt like the story came to a close, unlike Hereditary.

    I just realized Annie's recreation of the accident in the miniatures Charlie's head is on the ground then later on in the movie Charlie's head is gone from the miniature. And the very last shot the movie where they're panning out the tree house and it looks like a miniature I believe that's where Annie puts Charlie's head on the statue. I think the whole thing was a figment of Annie's imagination

      I loved it, until the actual "twist" became excruciatingly obvious, and it all rapidly descended into a very cliche-ridden horror movie that has been made a hundred times before. Real shame, this could have been great, had it stayed firmly in the realm of psychological family drama/thriller. That part was very effective.

    I absolutely love your comments/review of this film. Idk if I've found anyone I've agreed w/ more. I gotta say...I am creeped out now. I just barely watched this last nite & WHOA. It's 1 of the movies that u go into unaware, no matter what anyone tries to describe or leak, because it's so atmospheric. I liken it to being dumped in a dark forest blindfolded, then needing to find your way to safety. Alone. No one watching can b feeling the exact same way as another viewer. Everyone's just lost, or horrified, or sad, or permanently damaged. As I can tell, I'm no reviewer or writer. I still enjoyed your review of Hereditary, tho. Nice job. 👌
