HEREDITARY - This 2018 supernatural horror film was written/ directed by Ari Aster in his directorial debut. Hereditary follows a family grieving the loss of their secretive grandmother. Starring Toni Collette as a mom and miniaturist, she lives and creates at home with her family. Alex Wolff plays her son. Dark forces exact their due when a gruesome incident occurs between the brother/ sister, played by breakout star Milly Shapiro. I make it a point never to find out anything about new horror films before watching, to immerse myself in the experience. There were so many Easter eggs, it felt dissatisfying since I knew I was missing a lot of them, upon first viewing. But with so much artistry and enjoyability, I’m sure to watch again soon. A24 has released The Witch, It Comes at Night, The Monster, Blackcoat’s Daughter, A Ghost Story and Hereditary. It’s great to see a studio producing so much new horror. I certainly won’t miss the next A24 feature! And you shouldn’t either!
