SOLD OUT – Hereditary
When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter’s family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry. The more they discover, the more they find themselves trying to outrun the sinister fate they seem to have inherited.
“What “Hereditary” shares with “Get Out” — apart from a house full of white people behaving strangely — is an ambitious energy, a sense that the creaky old machinery of horror can be adapted to new and exciting uses.” AO Scott, NY Times
“Perhaps every era gets the horror movies it doesn’t yet know it deserves, pictures that seep into our souls even before they infiltrate our minds. Ari Aster’s debut feature Hereditary is a movie for the mood of today, unsettling in its arid, controlled creepiness, but largely distinguished by Toni Collette’s intricately layered lead performance, a portrayal of a woman whose love for her family spirals into mad decay.” Stephanie Zacharek, Time
“One of the many thrills of writer-director Ari Aster’s feature debut Hereditary is that our questions keep piling up, scene after scene, brick by brick, inexorably and almost exhaustingly, and it’s unlikely that most of them will be satisfactorily answered upon a first viewing. Aster’s film is a primarily emotional experience, as all great horror should be.” Michael Koresky, Film Comment
