“A harrowing story of unthinkable family tragedy that veers into the realm of the supernatural, Hereditary takes its place as a new generation’s The Exorcist—for some, it will spin heads even more savagely.” (Time Out) Beginning with the aftermath of the matriarch’s death, this nightmarish domestic horror film from first-time writer and director Ari Aster sees a family torn apart as it discovers the terrifying inheritance that has been passed down to them. Featuring a chilling and fearless performance by Toni Collette as Annie, the grieving daughter and mother of a troubled teenaged stoner son and a strangely distracted young daughter. An artist, Annie constructs uncannily realistic dioramas: miniature rooms that embody the film’s theme of a larger, malevolent entity playing with human toys. Compared to horror classics like Rosemary’s Baby and The Shining, Hereditary is “truly stunning, grotesque, and bizarre.” (The Chicago Sun-Times)
