Hereditary Rated 15


Dir. Ari Aster. USA, 2018. 2h 7m. Starring Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff, Milly Shapiro, Ann Dowd, Mallory Bechtel, Zachary Arthur.

After their reclusive grandmother passes away, a family tries to escape from the dark fate they’ve inherited. Ari Aster’s directorial debut unleashes a nightmarish vision of deep psychological terror and has been dubbed the most frightening film in years by critics.

‘Being blindsided by fright might be fun in the moment, but it's the scares you can see coming that last.’ ★★★★★ Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

‘Hereditary is basically a brilliant machine for scaring us, and Collette's operatic, hypnotic performance seals the deal every second she's on the screen.’ ★★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
