Ari Aster's 2018 film Hereditary is freaking out everyone. The movie premiered at Sundance, and the audience was not prepared for the sheer amount of terror the film presents. The two-hour long production is about spirits, hauntings, and a familial curse that just won't go away. People applaud Aster's film for its thrill and originality, but Hereditary isn't like the average scary movie about families. In fact, the film makes The Exorcist look like nothing more than a graphic children's movie.
You may not have had the privilege of seeing Hereditary at Sundance. However, you'll understand the horror various Twitter users expressed after viewing the production first-hand. Starring actress Toni Collette was a creative genius in United States of Tara and in every other role she's been cast. However, her role in Hereditary makes people wish that Collette quit acting before production of the film. It's not because her acting was horrible - rather, she was so good she gave everybody nightmares.
#Hereditary might be the scariest movie I’ve ever seen. I was sweating, shivering, biting my shirt, and loudly whispering to myself “I can’t. I can’t.” This Movie will be HUGE. Toni Collette & Alex Wolff 100% deserve to be factors in the Oscar race for their horrifying portraits.— Daniel Joyaux (@Thirdmanmovies) January 25, 2018
HEREDITARY is one of the most unnerving, stressful and downright horrifying movies I have ever seen. Filled with real terror that will shake your soul and an amazing performance from Toni Collette. Absolutely shook right now. #Sundance #Sundance2018 #NBPSundance— Matt Neglia (@NextBestPicture) January 24, 2018
