Hereditary ★★★½

Ari Aster's "Hereditary" is the type of film that leaves one wishing they had seen it before everyone else got to it and declared the genre outing the greatest horror film since the last horror film incorrectly declared the greatest horror film since the last horror film incorrectly declared the greatest horror film... Too-high expectations aside, Aster's supernatural mystery/familial tragidrama is a neatly assembled, capably chilling horror film that features an altogether enthralling performance by Toni Collette. The work is dark, harrowing, stinging, and, despite areas where the plot does not fully come together, haunting. The film may require tempered expectations, but it provides a satisfying experience.
