    This was one of those movies where, as badly as I wanted to look away, I almost physically couldn't.

    Maybe its just me... but I thought it was possibly the worst movie ever made. It contained no drama, no suspense, no action, no mystery... just pure morbidity.

    You Stup** Mother**cker, this is one of the stupidest fu**ing movies I have ever watched. The movies plot was asinine and there was not one scare to be found in the over 2 hour film! I paid only $0.99 for to rent this cr**fest and feel like I should sue both the makers of this trash and you for my pain and suffering. You owe me a $1 you fu**ing POS!!!

    You should review Izo by Takeshi Miike(also Aterrados(Terrified) is a far superior film to Hereditary. Hereditary is average.)

    I loved High Tension, cant remember where I saw it the first time but I bought it on dvd later on because it was such a good movie. When I first saw advertising for this film though, I hadnt heard anything about it and was very disinterested, but definitely going to watch Hereditary now because of your review.

    I can cut about 45 minutes of bullshit walking dead like time wasting scenes that prolonged the movie and ruined the experience, also that shitty ending is inexcusable and whoever wrote it should be fired immediately

    It just seems to me that people who think this movie is garbage is the type of person to laugh at any horror movie. They refuse to suspend their disbelief at all. My favorite horror movie of all time is Jacob's Ladder and Hereditary's combining sorrow with the unknown reminds me of it so much. For those who hate Hereditary, I wonder what their favorrite horror movie is?

    Am I the only one who found this movie utterly boring?? THIS is considered the scariest movie of the year?? Gimme a break.
    Look, I know you have to build up things and set things up and that takes time....but MEN this movie drags and drags on at times.
    There was nothing in this movie I found scary. Nothing. Only a few moments that were a bit disturbing at best but those were véry rare.
    Maybe it's just me, a complete different level of taste probably, but so much in this movie (especially the ending) is to me just pure nonsense.
    It was long, slow, dragging, uninteresting, and at the end just confusing. If you right now explained the ending to me....oke that's fine. But it's not gonna change my mind.
    This was a snorefest and I was glad I didn't watch it in theaters.

    i feel like no one caught the foreshadowing when annie goes to the meeting and she explains how her brother killed him self bc he thought he’s mom was trying to put something in him maybe she was trying to put paimon in him before annie’s son was born

    A bit out of context, but if that's still possible after seeing so many of your reviews (although possibly still just a small portion of what's on this channel...), I admire you even more with each Cowboy Bebop T-Shirt I notice on you. Fine collection! I'm also so used to the beard by now, that randomly bumping into some of your older, less hair-covered videos has become a really awkward experience xD

    I can't believe I just found this channel. Well done.
    And you are the first amongst ALL of the many channels to speak of Hereditary as I saw it and also say it was the best since the Babadook. The family trauma plus "let's add a sinister force" formula is so horrific. I actually own one of the few "Mister Babadook" pop up books created by the art team from the film, one of my prized possessions.
    And yes, in November, I am still thinking of Hereditary and I am going to watch it again...right now.

    I liked this movie but had one problem. I wouldn't really even fault the movie for this, but the absolute most horrific scene in the movie takes place in the first act. I won't spoil it but the scene I mean is the ride home from the party. Along with the scenes immediately following that, nothing could come close to the horror shown there. it was brutal and I don't care if the devil himself crawled out fo Gabriel Byrne's urethra and started whistling show tunes, there is no way to get scarier (Or more emotional) than those first 20 minutes.

    I had to literally rewind the car part were the little girl is hanging her head out the window because I didn't think her head was decapitated but it was this movie is so messed up in a good way it actually made me shocked and think it's so unsettling it plays with your head a lot

  • thomas gibbs

    this film was hilarious .i hugely recommend it to anyone looking for a spoof horror in the guise of a serious scary movie .shots ,direction and acting were all on top form but damn this was in no way a real horror movie at all -
    did anyone else notice that this is a secret comedy horror ? i sat ready to watch this movie with baited breath and was very excited but my god it made me laugh out loud every ten minutes which i was not expecting .i would think i was nuts if it were not for the fact that the five other people i watched it with and a whole bucnh of other people watching in the movie theatre all laughed when i did and so i now know that im not a crazy sicko which was a huge relief -
    personally i could only think that this was a practical joke from the director on hollywood producers to make a statement of saying "fuck you and your money you assholes! im gonnna make a movie thats funny as shit but because im going to make it look good you wont even pay enough attention to it to notice its a fucking mockery " which to me ,is genius and bold as brass ! if this is not the case then i dont know why the fuck else you would enjoy this film?! and if you did watch this movie through serious eyes and didnt find anything funny ,please Chris Stuckmann and anyone reading please please please watch it again with the humour in mind and im 100% certain you will see where im coming from - i would even place money on it !
    creepy kid keeps clicking = giggles .
    creepy kid cuts head off dead bird = funny.
    KIds head gets cut off = funny.
    Brother does'nt tell anyone,just lies there in bed until someone notices the gore in the car = kinda funny.
    Mother chills making a model of the tragic beheading = absurd but very funny.
    mother and son argue at dinner table = awkward but funny.
    Son smashes his face in to school desk = uber funny.
    having no experience with ouija boards the mother makes it work first time = chuckled .
    mother tried to strangle son in his sleep and she tells him she tried to abort him = fucking funny.
    after the dad burns to death the mothers just hiding in the top corner of a really tall room = very funny.
    son runs away and mother defies gravity and head bangs the fuck out of the attic door = hilarious .
    son then see's mother hanging from rafters slicing her throat to shreds = trippy but funny.
    son falls /jumps out the window in panic = funny.
    then just loads of wrinkly old person nudity which was very cringey but funny .
    theres a few other funny moments that i cant remember off the top of my head having only watched it once this is the best i can do .
    i would love to have a discussion with someone /anyone who can look passed the great cinematography and so so cast and see the movie for the funny fucking film/practical joke on hollywood producers that it truly is .

    Ohhh good lord. Okay i don't see anyone saying this so i'm gonna go ahead and say don't watch this movie. If you love yourself and want yourself to be happy, just don't. You can't un-see some things. I've been a HUGE horror fan for almost all my life. This movie crosses the line. Yep. Most traumatizing movie I've ever seen.

    Everyone talks about the perfomances of Toni Collette and Milly Shapiro, and yeah the'yre impressive, but I don't understand why anybody talks about Alex Wolff perfomance. C'mon,at the end, he's kinda the protagonist of the movie and no one talks about his great perfomance. The look on his face in that car scene after THAT HAPPENS (if you've watched the movie, you know what I'm talking about) it's stunning! Underrated actor, at least, in this movie

  • Zoe Simza

    I thought the movie was great up until the scene where Charlie dies. That was so hackneyed, and from there the focus of the film changes from a dysfunctional family that's falling apart to some weird occult bullshit with Annie jumping off the walls like Spiderman and Peter being possessed by demons in public places. It went full on cheap supernatural thriller after that, and it was pretty bad. It wasn't as bad as something like, say, The Nun, but it was still pretty awful.

    One of the best scenes for me was the mom hiding in the corner for a good minute and the son has no idea. One of the worst moments for me was when she floats away crawling along the wall. With that said great movie altelast 8/10

  • Jenni Elina Holopainen

    It had some pace that is known for me from finnish movies, and that connect to me, my Mother, my Daughter, my Grandmothers, our history in a war against Rushia, closed hearts and the pain that was never discussed ; this movie was true horror in a deep level.
    And the boy, we lost so many sons in war, and that pain is like a curse in our society.

    The Babadook was the last horror film that I really loved prior to seeing Hereditary. I regard Babadook as better than Hereditary, but I still think Hereditary is brilliant and it's nice to feel like somebody else has similar tastes to me. Especially because most of my friends don't even like The Babadook. Are you going to review the new Suspiria? I just watched it last night and I think it's comparable to both Babadook and Hereditary. I'd love to see your take on it.

    Even films like Oculus, Annabelle: Creation and Ouija: Origin of Evil deserve some major credit.
    Haven’t seen Halloween yet... hope I can add it to the list.

    Elias Marklund Month ago

    I think Hereditary is the Amnesia of movies. To hell with the norm, use great visual and audio presentation to send the chills and panic down peoples spines. That is not to say other movies and games didn't do it well, it's just that they both feel so revolutionary in one sense or the other. I want the atmosphere, sound, and story to dominate, not a cgi face invading my iris every 5 minutes.

  • Rob Billeaud
    Rob Billeaud Month ago

    I don't know what all the hype was about when I first saw all the press on this movie saying how scary it was. This generation's Exorcist, they said. What a load of crap that was. I will say it was interesting, not something that had been done before, which is an accomplishment these days, but scary is not a word I would use. The ending was underwhelming and I could have come up with half a dozen endings that would have been better. I just wasn't all that impressed and glad I didn't pay $15 or whatever at the theater.

    A psychologist says bipolar disorder is not hereditary, nor is DID. When i checked through the net, it says bipolar disorder is definitely hereditary and that it is the strongest cause too. Anybody know whats true? Have a gut feeling this psychologist lady is so wrong (all the articles on the net says it is hereditary)

  • thewestwardsky
    thewestwardsky Month ago

    i thought the film as absurdly blunt and boring. yes, it is VERY well made, the camerawork is excellent, so is toni, rivalling essie davies in the babadook. but the story itself is utterly disjointed and uninteresting. the clues we DO get (like what she says during the self help group scene). unfortunately the fast resolution turns the film so upside down that it makes no sense anymore. its as if these were two completely different movies. i liked the build up a lot, it was so well crafted, the designs and visuals are great. but the ending ... i dont know its just a completely different trope than all the build up would suggest. even the trailers suggest a completely different film - after the two trailers i had seen, i assumed the grand mother had made preperations for her spirit to return to a host, and all the people in the movie would have to play a key part in bringing her back (a bit like the bell in fringe, that brings back william bell).
    as for the babadook - it is clearly the superior of the two films. what i think hereditary lacks is peters perspective. does he understand what's happening? it would have been a more interesting film if we had known what the grandmother had done with the kids. or to them.

    Idk it was ok... I just watched what you rated it before watching the movie so I expected a bit more. I think my standards are too high for modern horror movies... like it still made me laugh when the little ghost goes swimming by the son in the background at some point... not scary. The movie overall was more just unsettling to me, but it did have had good acting. Ending was kinda meh.

  • Jovana Jovanović
    Jovana Jovanović Month ago


    I just watched it and realized something: one of the reasons why this movie is so disturbing is that the grandmother, matriarch, usually loving and warm figure in life of ordinary people is twisted into this evil, demon-worshiping, cold-blooded bitch witch who is able and willing to sacrifice her whole family in order to bring about the fleshing out of a foul demon. That's a brilliant villain if you ask me. It's unnatural - we usually link men to coldness and manipulation and in this case, it's ol' grandmama that will fuck you up.
