Hereditary Reviews

  • 1d ago

    The evil plan is so well executed that the protagonists never have a chance. I realise fatalism is the theme, but I missed the part usually included in demonic possessions where there is some investigation, revelation, and attempt to fight back. The lack of hope made the story seem too mechanical.

    This movie would've been better if it had been made by Blumhouse or any other Hollywood director.... Most people mistake dullness with "artistry"... The director of this Ari M. has good ideas but doesn't know how to make a good pace/rythm...in other words, he is boring, I never thought I'd say this but this movie could've benefited from any Hollywood horror directors

    The first quarter is super and makes you really invested. Unfortunately, the rest of the film just does not live up to the groundwork that was established early on.

    Hereditary is a terrifying, but engaging film to watch for movie critics. Although the plot may be confusing, it becomes the birth of a new horror century. Hereditary deserves it's own throne in horror history, and will not upset people new to the A24 studio.

    Hereditary isn't as impressive as a horror film as critics made it out to be. Since this is artsy horror, it's of course destined to be more divisive than more cinematic horror like "The Conjuring" and the 2017 version of "It". It is directed well, Toni Collette's performance is excellent, it does a decent job handling the topic of grief and there are very good scenes, most notably the dinner scene. Its principle flaws come from its slow pace, unintentionally hilarious moments and a twist that has subtle foreshadowing but also involves a very convoluted plan that relied on NOTHING going wrong. If you're more used to horror movies that spoon-feed you exposition...this isn't for you. But, if you keep an open mind like me, you might like, if not necessarily love Hereditary. We can unanimously agree that Toni Collette deserved an Oscar nomination, however.

    Not a lot of jump scares, but definitely the most horrifying film this decade! Excellent cinematography - the tone is spooky af. The actors are amazing - Don't miss it!

    Hereditary is truly chilling, rivetingly shot and commanded by staggering performances from Toni Colette and Alex Wolff. Ari Aster's unsettling genre masterpiece will leave you with your skin crawling.

    Started with so much promise with great leads and acting but then explicitly descended into a mish mash of the the wicker man plus the conjuring (Insert most horror Genres) Colette was brilliant but Byrne is sleepwalking and getting paid into his roles as usual. The directing was fantastic but it was such a shame that it lacked actual direction
