I eventually see practically every horror movie that comes out regardless of merit and I can say without a doubt this is the best one that’s been made in at least ten years.
This movie was almost tailor-made to scare me in particular. It has all the stuff I love (fear) the most: devil worshipers, possession, witchcraft, be-headings.
I won’t give away any plot points or surprises because this movie should be seen without any prior knowledge. That being said the most interesting thing is this could have been a gut-wrenching examination of guilt and loss even without any supernatural elements.
Hereditary is amazing, and while Toni Collette will not get an Oscar because this is a horror movie, she definitely should.
