    Took a chance on this, and I am glad I did. This was a pretty creepy and trippy. Psychological thriller. Some really good acting, and the picture quality is fantastic. Make sure you watch it with the lights off to get the full effect! Ha ha

    First, the good. Ari Aster’s HEREDITARY is a beautifully well made film featuring fantastic performances, an unsettling mood, great music, and effective scares. Now, the bad. I hate to use the phrase “rip off” but it hews awfully close to a massively famous horror flick from the ‘60s. I won’t mention which one, because doing so would spoil the numerous pleasures this modern chiller has to offer. However, if you are at all versed in horror history, you might come away a little exasperated. Toni Collette is absolutely riveting as Annie, a troubled middle-aged miniaturist, wife, and mother of two. The story begins at her mother’s funeral. We come to understand that her relationship with her mother was strained, to say the least. The movie turns on Collette’s performance and she delivers. Gabriel Byrne plays her increasingly concerned husband. Byrne is convincing as a warm, if stoic, rational man trying to hold his family together as tragedy occurs. Alex Wolff, who impressed me in MY FRIEND DAHMER, goes to a whole other level as oldest child, Peter. Wolff, who gets the meatiest part next to Collette, is immersive as the son who butts heads with his unraveling mother and is unaware of the impending danger that creeps ever closer to his family’s lives. Milly Shapiro is a revelation as the younger socially awkward and nut allergy afflicted daughter, Charlie. Shapiro has to play a quirky role and the young actress knocks it out of the park. Ann Dowd also plays her role of Joan, Annie’s new friend and fellow griever, perfectly. Matronly and empathetic, she seems to be everything that Annie’s mother wasn’t. After another terrible event shakes Annie to her core, Joan provides somewhat strange comfort to our clearly unstable lead. Is Annie losing her mind, though, or is something literally more diabolical happening? This is a carefully constructed film, using cinematic tools to obfuscate and keep the viewer in the dark and on the edge of their seat. Pawel Pogorzelski composes some stunning imagery and disorients with expert camerawork. Much use is made of Annie’s strikingly accurate miniature dioramas to the point where it’s sometimes difficult to tell what’s real and what’s merely artifice, complimenting the mysterious maneuvers of the story itself. Aster, who wrote and directed, works with his cinematographer and composer Colin Stetson to weave a haunting and suffocating atmosphere. Stetson’s music masterfully adds an additional layer of dread to the proceedings. Script and performances work hand in hand to maximize our feelings for the characters. This is a film with class. With mainstream horror, that sometimes means the focus is on the psychological and not on gore. HEREDITARY has both. I was actually surprised by the amount of visceral images provided. No one will ever mistake this for a splatter film, but there are some fairly horrific sequences peppered into the visuals. So, you can probably tell that I enjoyed the film and that it is expertly crafted. It has a pretty major problem, though. It’s difficult to ignore the massive similarities to that other film that I mentioned earlier. True, it’s definitely not a straight remake, but it works from the same blueprint. How much you enjoy this will probably depend on either your ignorance of the other film or how much you’re willing to forgive. It’s no doubt a very good or even excellent film, just not a very original one. Ari Aster makes a splash with his debut film, HEREDITARY. Everything about the film is masterful, except for its originality. I especially admire how it structures the audience’s uncertainty about if we’re seeing mental illness or something more sinister. I am definitely looking forward to what Aster does next, I just hope it’s not as derivative. I watched this on 4K UHD and it is a gorgeous disc. The film itself is beautiful, too. Unnerving and deliberate, I recommend it with some caveats.

    Solid Scares

    Posted .

    It's not difficult to appreciate the craft and attention to detail in first time feature director Ari Aster's Hereditary. What is difficult to appreciate is the narrative path Hereditary follows and how much it ultimately feels patched together in order to execute horror tropes that, in all honesty, it is too good for. There is one aspect of Hereditary that feels right at home exploring the continued ramifications and deep-seated issues that are passed from one generation to the next while being more than willing to take on and explore how family can really mess you up given the most extreme of circumstances, but there is another side to the film that wants to utilize this most extreme of family dramas to paint itself definitively into the horror genre and this is where the movie kind of falls apart. The upside to this is that Hereditary only begins to really become or at least fully embrace this unnecessary narrative evolution in the last fifteen to twenty minutes or so. Prior to this, Aster shrouds so much of what is actually going on in this questionable state of what might be happening and what is actually happening by building Toni Collette and her Annie's mental state to a point where her actions are in total question of reality. We're made aware of her family history and their bouts with depression and mental health issues very early while throughout the course of the film Annie experiences incredible and unthinkable traumas that would undoubtedly bring such issues to the forefront, but while the devolving security of Annie's mental state is what ultimately brings about the true, genuine horror in Hereditary it is also this avenue, this idea of how bad parents can mess up their children that is placed on the backburner in favor of the more genre-specific plot elements. It is something of a shame it's with this familiar bang that Hereditary decides to go out as it leaves something of the wrong impression on the audience given the majority of what comes before the final revelation is an unsettling more than it is scary exercise in pacing that boils each individual party to an intentionally uneven place of uncertainty, exhaustion, and just...pure misery. Hereditary is one of those movies that is easier to admire than it is to necessarily enjoy, but it seems Aster only ever meant to paint a portrait rather than entertain a mass. It's not difficult to appreciate the camera, sound design, and especially each of the very committed performances in Hereditary, but that this twisted dysfunctional family drama ends up being more dysfunctional than it does pure family drama leaves a simplicity to be desired.

    Nothing compares to it.. the wrenching presence of this film truly stays with you- even after the credits roll. Each aspect is carefully placed throughout.. it’s no exaggeration to say this film is too good for the ‘genre’ of horror.

    It was definitely a great look into someone slowly losing their mind but the supernatural part was difficult to understand. This was also a little hard to follow because you don't know if what is happening is real or just in their heads. I think the movie does to ad to the tension and drama happening in this family. So as a horror movie it succeeds in scaring. I don't really care for horror but I can appreciate it. I probably wouldn't recommend it just for that reason but if I knew that person liked horror then I would end up recommending it.

    This film is genius, maybe not everyone's cup of tea but this is true horror. This director along with some others are gonna be the saviors if the genre as this film does not rely on the over use of jump scares. That's not horror. Anyone can make a loud noise, most of us have fun with jumping out at someone and laughing it off, but that's not scary. Scary, dread, suspense and everything this film does with a concept and way if directing is horror.

    A Neo-Horror Classic

    Owned for 1 month when reviewed.

    Ari Aster became a serious new player in the horror genre by virtue of this film, a shockingly effective examination of a family plagued by guilt and demonic secrets. Toni Collette (whom you might remember as Haley Joel Osment's bewildered mother in "The Sixth Sense") here stars as a mother driven to the edge of insanity by the conviction that there's something really wrong with the family DNA. The things the Graham family endures and does are truly horrifying, but Aster's touch as a writer-director is so confident and assured that the scares he conjures never seem contrived or gratuitous. He's a director to watch for, and "Hereditary" is a horror film worth watching more than once.

    Great Psychological Triller/Horror Film!

    This is not your typical bloodbath horror film with cliche or predictable jumps and scares around every corner. This slow burn film escalates from eerie to creepy to horrifying and does not defuse. The opening act is a great introduction to the troubled family with a mysterious presence lingering about. The second act is filled with horrifying images, the tormented family breaking down and uncanny past coming to light. The final act reveals a fire that cannot be put out and wont let go until closing scene. The story holds a great pace and well put together to keep the mystery and suspense flowing throughout the film.

    The acting alone is enough of a valid reason for a purchase. This movie is going to make you uncomfortable, which is intentional. HDR is a bonus because this isnt a film of heavy color. Lots of neutral background tones makes certain objects stand out more. This is a drama with horror elements and when those elements kick in, watch out. Lots of research went into the back drop of Pagan rituals for this one. Toni Collette's performance was academy award worthy. Her range is put to the test. Pay attention to the little details of how she absorbs her character. OUTSTANDING
