Hereditary - horror/drama

Postby Blue Jackets » Tue Jun 05, 2018 6:44 am

Comes out Friday. 96% on RT. Looks really interesting.

When the matriarch of the Graham family passes away, her daughter's family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry.

Better yet, take them with.

I am not sure if this looks like a movie for me. Kathryn wants to see it, but I just don't think I care for it?

This movie was really good. It was very different from what I was expecting from the trailers that I saw and Kathryn held the same opinion so I'm not alone there.

I will wait for some more people to see it before divulging too much, but it was very good. Not really scary at all, just suspenseful and disturbing images, mostly.

I thought it sucked. There were parts that was cool, but I thought this was overhyped and boring.

I've noticed with the A24 horror films I've seen, it's almost like they aren't completely polished. They're close but not quite there. They tend to start out slow and have a slow progression until a switch is flipped and it goes flat out crazy. They're missing a middle tension building generally a sense of paranoia between the characters. It's funny they were all different directors, but most of the films are missing this part. Hereditary and The VVitch weren't as bad offenders, but Blackcoat's Daughter and It Comes At Night really missed this opportunity.

Power ranking them from best to worse:
The VVitch
Hereditary
It Comes at Night
Blackcoat's Daughter

I wonder if the Lighthouse will have this problem or were it will place among this list.

You're right. I hated It Comes at Night too. There's a difference between slow burn and just boring. Didn't realize that one was A24 though. They have such a good track record for movies, but their horror game is a little weak.

I guess Green Room would fall power ranking too. I would put it at the top. While looking into a list of A24 productions, there are a lot on the list I want to watch either from my own genuine curiosity or from hearing about the films from friends or articles.
