The terrifying trailer for the ‘game changing’ horror that’s being compared to The Exorcist is here

Paul Moore

A modern horror masterpiece.

“This isn’t a scary movie. It’s pure emotional terrorism, gripping you with real horror, the unspeakable kind, and then imbuing the supernatural stuff with those feelings” 

This is how The AV Club has described Hereditary, the new horror that’s being hailed as this generation’s answer to The Exorcist.

Ok, what’s it about?

When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter’s family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry. The more they discover, the more they find themselves trying to outrun the sinister fate they seem to have inherited. Making his feature debut, writer-director Ari Aster unleashes a nightmare vision of a domestic breakdown that exhibits the craft and precision of a nascent auteur, transforming a familial tragedy into something ominous and deeply disquieting, and pushing the horror movie into chilling new terrain with its shattering portrait of heritage gone to hell.

Since debuting in Sundance, Ari Aster’s film has already gained notoriety as being very, very special in the horror genre. Just take a look at some of the reviews;

The New York Post – “This remarkable directorial debut from Ari Aster builds on classical horror tropes – the occult, possession, mental illness- to craft its own unique spin on terror.”

Time Out – “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.”

The Hollywood Reporter – “Hereditary takes the core haunting element of a spirit with a malevolent agenda and runs with it in a seemingly endless series of unexpected directions over two breathless hours of escalating terror that never slackens for a minute.”

Starring Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff, and Milly Shapiro, we know what you’re going to be watching on June 8th
