Sundance audiences are calling ‘Hereditary’ the scariest movie in decades.
The latest horror offering from A24 (The Witch, Green Room), ‘Hereditary’ recently spooked the pants off critics upon its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, and now thanks to the newly released Official Trailer we can see why festival-goers were buzzing with terror.
Here’s the official description of Hereditary from A24:
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.
Yikes. And you thought your family had problems.
