    This movie was fucking great! 8/10. One of the best horror movies ive seen since Babadook and The Wailing.

    Well I think it is The Exorcist for this generation since The Exorcist nowadays is ridiculous. It's a classic for it's time but definitely not a timeless classic. You show The Exorcist and Hereditary to somebody that was born after The Exorcist and they'll pick Hereditary every single time.
    Sure the thing was a blueprint to well written and directed true horror back then but it has been surpassed by at least 5 movies in my book.

    The movie didn’t build tension tho. The whole time all the “scary” parts were so minimal, that when shit started popping off, I had no idea what to make of it. Everyone was just laughing because we were completely confused. Scariest part was the little girl’s tongue clacking. That’s it.

    this was an utter shit film at best! NO1 who see's this will ever be stupid enough to like it whatsoever. it was boreing and funny from time to time, scary? HELL NO xD boreing fuckshit. the acting was 5/10 at best, and the girl with down syndrom needs a ton of acting lessons before even trying out for an advertisement on anal leakage. seriousmly what a flop! the movie payed everyone for syaing its awesome, they payed a company to overhype their movie. this is a FUCKSHIT BULLWHOREING CUNTSUCKING SHIT MOVIE! fact , peace out ya'll xD

    58% currently on audience score from rotten tomatoes. So the hype wore off. This is a shame but I am glad I allowed myself to watch reviews first and now I am just waiting for it to leave theaters

    "Angry Joe" should just dump the other two when reviewing movies. "OJ" doesn't reason or analyze movies well (or at all). And the third guy, well.. Do I need to go there?

  • Claus Nielsen
    Claus Nielsen Month ago

    This movie is a piece of art. What they are doing with the lights, shadows and sound is astonishing. That "OJ" is "waiting for something to happen" just shows his lack of intelligence when it comes to movies that actually shows so much. It is tense, it grabs you and never lets go. Top marks from me.

    You guys should watch the Exorcist again because it takes an hour to build up as well. It's a possession movie and that requires turmoil on the victims to weaken their spirits to allow easier possession as well as the hidden clues throughout the beginning that you must have missed. As for the model sets, those are in place of flashbacks that would ruin the pace.

    How do you give this a 6/10 this was not your typical horror movie it was different in good way

  • Hannah Smith
    Hannah Smith Month ago

    I totally agree with the slow burn and reminded me of The Witch and also The Wicker Man... But I've never laughed so much at a horror film.. what was with the random naked people.. that was so random and then when Toni Collette s decapitated character floated to the tree house. I definitely think I need to watch it again and pay more attention to it.. I was so excited for this.. it was.... Okay.. I wasn't scared lol.

    I think a lot of people miss the meaning of the film. The theme is free will which the family have none of, they are manipulated by the cultists and cannot avoid their fate. The mother almost kills her kids while sleepwalking, something she admits she had no control over. the name of the film is hereditary- a process of which we have no control over.

    Left just after 1 hour, was late, was cold and bored out of my mind. This movie was definitely not what I expected, great acting however!

  • Michael Doherty

    This movie was a well written psychological drama with horror elements and (in my opinion) one of the worst endings to what otherwise would be an awesome movie.

  • Verum Venatus
    Verum Venatus Month ago

    Literally just watched it and thought it was amazing. Did not like the ending but found it generally creepy and unnerving throughout. Very interesting and a "true" horror film in my opinion. Don't understand all the negative audience reviews it's been getting, there are so many shitty horrors out that rely on cheap jump scares, basic uninspired acting and unoriginal storylines (Not that Hereditary's story was very original) that I believe audiences have gotten too used to these types of horrors. Need more horrors like this

    What I liked about Hereditary is a lot of small clues are sprinkled throughout the movie before the climax. It doesn’t telegraph exactly what is going on so there are moments of legitimate shock and it is all earned. I can’t lie I was thinking about this movie after I left the theater. Most films are so forgettable but this one is definitely disturbing in a good way.

  • blue.elephant91
    blue.elephant91 Month ago

    I think most of the people who don't appreciate this movie are too dumb and impatient to really get all of the underlying themes and why things that they think are "boring" are actually horrifying. There's something to be said about a movie that can make you feel so uneasy, disturbed, helpless and surprised all at the same time

      Thanos, yeah and it wasn’t so much about the scares for me. It was the artistic style of the movie: the directing, performance, cinematography even how the visuals have subtle hints. I don’t think it was too much of a slow burn. The dollhouse does factor into the movie. In fact kind of a big part of the movie. These guys wouldn’t know. They might have enjoyed thrill kill movies like the purge or m. Knights movie where it’s not even about the story. I even loved the cinematography on the miniatures. There’s layers to this movie whether it’s psychologically or visually. I wish I could have been a fly on the wall while they were filming just to watch the production come together. Glad I’m not the only one who liked this movie!

      I know, right? This movie was fucking fantastic! "The Witch" comparison is very accurate, and both are some of the greatest horror films ever! Great plot, scary as shit, great acting, great atmosphere, everything is here. These fuckers are tripping balls.

    Yall disliked the movie for all the wrong reasons. And the fact that other joe gave this movie a 6/10 tell me he shouldn’t even be reviewing movies.

  • ImHere4TheChili
    ImHere4TheChili Month ago

    It's kind of sad what passes for horror, or a "psychological" film these days...there were plenty of things that were done well in this movie, but overall its so detached from how people would actually react to this crazy shit in real life it completely takes me out of the movie. The scene where the mom convinces the dad to go into the attic to see the decapitated "black tar" body...and he didn't immediately get a phone to call the police, or go collect his son and get the fuck out of there...


    The “doll houses” were there to show you that they were pawns being manipulated by an outside source.

    You guys are all complaining about the guys "not getting" the movie, movies are subjective, stop being up your own asses, respect each other's opinion, and stop being condescending because they have a different opinion on it. They loved a lot of things about it!

    Such a sad commentary that there's such a lack of understanding of movie making had there been jump scares , gore they would have loved it 7/10 skip these guys and find someone who actually reviews movies and btw the Exorcist was scary as shit but it played to parlor tricks sound editing, gore and swearing very little psychology

    IDK, man, this film's slow burn was done well to me. I'm not normally a horror film guy because I hate cheap jumpscare crap, this film scared me in the right ways, I never felt a "That was stupid" moment at it. It spends the time building suspense, building things up. I feel like it did good as a mixture of horror and character. Then again, I loved Blade Runner 2049. Guess slow burn movies are more my style.

    Friend and I walked out after almost an hour (which is HALF OF THE SCREEN TIME). Boring, unfocused, and annoying audience (constant clicking and talking). One of the worst movies I've ever seen in theaters and the worst movie I've seen all year. ONE HOUR into the film:
    1.) Still don't know who the protagonist or antagonist is / are. Is it a person? Thing? Concept?
    2.) Lack of establishing character moments. Establishment shots are done when a character is introduced, to set them up on their arc and to let the audience know who they are. This movie has none of that.
    3.) Don't remember any characters names except Charlie, and that's because her name is dropped every single scene in the movie up to this point.
    4.) No build up of tension or any scares at this point.
    5.) No establishment of atmosphere.
    6.) No establishment of central theme, end goal, or driving force.
    7.) Bad writing (characters are unrelatable and don't talk or act like real people in what is supposed to be a grounded movie).
    All of this shit an hour into the movie, movie is half over at this point, and we still know nothing about it, what is going on, where it is going, who these people are, etc. These things should be established within the first 30 min of a movie, we are an hour in. It reminded me a lot of Cloud Atlas, which had the exact problems that this movie does.

    The dolls/doll houses most CERTAINLY played a role within the film. It was the perfect metaphor to represent the fact the family was being controlled (like dolls) by the cult as they had absolutely no power or control whatsoever.

  • BrokenBeats94
    BrokenBeats94 Month ago

    I agree with a 7/10.
    Personally **** [SPOILERS]****
    I wanted to see Annie actually have mental health issues in the ending and these were passed down to her kids as well OR at least an expansion of the cult and Paimon in the end like the review points out. The ending was creepy but it just had exposition, dumps it as demon cult and ends it which we've seen a lot before (The Witch, Paranormal Activity, etc). Really, you could interpret the whole film that it is about mental health issues and dealing with grief and in fact the ending could be interpreted Annie killed her husband, tried to kill her son, ends up sawing her own head off and then this triggers the son in to interpreting his family's tragedy and mental health issues as a demonic curse on the family. Though really the film sets it up as cut and dry 'it was the demon the whole time' but personally I think mental health issues are is a much scaring subject because it's something that exists and therefore the film would have had more impact and more of a message, the human brain can be a scary tool because it's something the characters can't escape.

    Horror is in a shitty place right now because people don't know what they want from it. People who claim they just "Want great horror films" don't actually care about a strong story and strong directing being shown to them..... They just want quick scares and thrills which is what got us to the point where 90% of horror films suck. Horror used to be seen as an art form with movies like Psycho and Exorcist, a means of story telling that has a lasting impact on the watcher..... Now we've forgot about that and just watch a scary face jumping into our faces then complain when it happens too much or too little.
    Every classic horror film has a very slow first 3/4 Halloween, Psycho and exorcist to name a few but these days people just want quick thrills

    Too me this film was like an 8 at the very least, my friend said it reminded him of Stanley Kubrick movies, because there’s so many hidden messages in the background visually, Joe’s wrong about nothing happening in the first hour, in fact there’s a shitload of foreshadowing all over the place

  • Claire J
    Claire J Month ago

    It's interesting that people think this doesn't get scary until the second half, because I thought the family drama in the first half was at times excruciatingly hard to watch and had me clenched as much as the main scares. There's a balance between the two that needs to be observed and appreciated because it's what gives the movie it's authentic feel. Otherwise it threatens to be a cliche (albeit still well done) exorcism flick

    Dollhouse was a metaphor for the family being manipulated by a higher power and shows how they were never in control. This movie was trying to be more than just another horror movie.

    People who find movies like this "boring" or "funny" should honestly stick to mindless, superficial action films like Transformers. It's sad to see how low some people's attention spans are. Must be the result of this social media age where everything needs to be quick, flashy and exciting to keep people interested.

    I loved this movie. It's definitely above the majority of horror movies. The acting was fenomenal, the story interesting although a litle bit unoriginal, but the execution was really good as well as the cinematography. Charlie death was very unpredictable. The pacing is really good as well. All around a very good horror movie. I feel lucky to have watched it.

    I loved this movie but i do appreciate some people don't get it each to their own i guess.. the cinematography is stunning as was the acting especially from Toni Collette & Alex Wolff.. yes it is a slow burner but for me it builds the atmosphere and delves into your psyche, with a sense of dread/hopelessness thrown in.. i'd rate this a 9.5/10 and i'm definitely going to see it again ;-)

    worst horror movie i seen this year and there is a cheap jump scare spoiler the pigeon part. story was to dragged out one character being a stoner was not believable. the cringy party he was at if you payed attention on that scene there is a guy who goes in for a hug gets shut down and then he still has his hands in the air just too cringy re watch that scene but people please watch something else. and another thing at the beginning it gave the plot away for crucial details of the movie or for whats gonna happen next.

    God forbid a movie challenges an audience to think, and doesn't take the easy way out with cgi ghosts and loud noises.
