Hereditary ★★★★★

I know everyone praises this movie, but if really is deserving of the praise. This is one of the best horror films I've ever seen. I love how Ari Aster portrays the visceral reality of grief and how people cope with it, and for me that was the scariest part of this. Not any supernatural presence (even though this has plenty of that) or big bad, but the power of loss and how that can tear a family apart.

I watched this film very briefly after my father passed away, so that could also play into why I relate to it so much, but this film really is a unique and unforgettable experience. I really don't want to spoil any more of this film than I have to for people who want to go in blind like I did because Hereditary is definitely an instant horror classic that I'll remember for a long, long time.

This has definitely cemented Toni Collette as one of my all time favorite actresses, because she is absolutely incredible in this. Wonderful performances from her as well as Alex Wolff and Milly Shapiro.
