Hereditary

Horror Drama


 

After the death of her mother, a woman and her family begin to unravel mysteries surrounding their ancestry.

"Hereditary" is a dark, confronting and spiralling examination of grief; and much like grief, it's not meant to be enjoyed - rather endured. Drama and horror merge into one indistinguishable entity, making the film a slow, restrained and unnerving one. This slow burn allows the film to masterfully build suspense, tension and anxiety right up until the shocking climax. Worthy of praise, this is certainly not a cathartic experience, but one that you'll ponder long after you've left the cinema. Inherently uncomfortable.
