Hereditary ★★★★

Toni Collette does *at least* three different things in this movie that might fuck you up forever.

imagine a supernatural creep-fest like THE CONJURING, but told with the patience of THE WITCH, the emotional depth of THE BABADOOK, and the kind of scares that that James Wan would kill for.

curious how it hangs together the second time around (scary movies tend to lose their edge, but a part of me suspects this one might get even better), but for now this feels like a *major* debut.
