I. Fucking. Hate. Teenagers.
If you're going to make stupid noises and be on your phone the whole movie, please do everyone a favor and stay home.
Hereditary is a very well crafted horror movie that has an attention to detail in it's camera work and direction, which is very divergent of modern Blumhouse trash.
What makes Hereditary stand out is how it doesn't rely on jump scares throughout or manipulative low humming violin to artificially create tension. This shows that they are confident in what they are showing is scary, and they were completely right.
The best way to describe this film is saying it is a well executed, visceral experience that takes unexpected turns constantly. It is movies like this that we need to keep the horror genre fresh, and I'm so happy it exists.
