Hereditary ★★★★½

Ari, what the fuck happened to you as a child?

Hereditary will make your dysfunctional family look like the holy fucking trinity. And I'm not at all religious (just spiritual), but y'all need Jesus out here. Like if Rosemary's Baby had a whole family. But seriously, the way Aster slowly builds tension across the film is masterfully done, and when it boiled over I was speechless. Speechless because all I felt was sheer terror. On a lighter note though, the camerawork was excellent! The camera was always exactly where it needed to be to creep you the hell out. I recommend seeing this in the theater, you're in for a good squirm.
