New Horror Film Hereditary Has Everyone Scared

hereditary-horror-movie-poster
A movie called Hereditary recently premiered at Sundance and has filmmakers, critics and viewers going crazy and they all say it's fucking scary.

Insainment Hereditary

"Hereditary follows a family and the mysterious legacy they find themselves entwined in once they move into their dead relative's home. Strange and eerie things start happening to the family as they begin to unravel the cryptic dark secrets of their ancestry."

Hereditary

It's already scored a perfect 100% on Rotten Tomatoes (so far) with people calling it "emotional terrorism" and "deeply upsetting" and even warning viewers that it'll leave them "too scared to turn off the lights in their own home for weeks" and that it's too scary to even watch, that Critics are leaving the cinema terrified, and not only are people screaming inside the theatre but people are just walking out completely..



Insainment Hereditary

And we're not talking about the usual reviews you always see here & there that say every fuckin' movie is the greatest shit they've ever seen, the 'reviews' for this are similar pretty much anywhere you look and posted by everything from viewers to bloggers to critics to filmmakers etc.. which might not be a good thing cause people are going in expecting too much rather than being shocked or surprised. I never listen to critics personally, and we'll find out for ourselves when it opens on June 8 (2018).

Insainment Hereditary

*Here are some tweets, comments and reviews from various random places:

- “Hereditary” ... I haven’t been this upset and freaked out by a horror movie since the original Ju-On. My stomach NEVER turns because of a movie, and there’s a moment in this movie so upsetting I almost lost it. Every inch is crafted to horrific detail. Fuck me. #sundance2018

Insainment Hereditary

- Hereditary isn't just the freakiest thing I've seen in ages, but by far the most emotionally upsetting. Never feels like a tease; every scare has a very cruel purpose. Toni Collette astonishes. Couldn't have asked for a more satisfying end to my #Sundance2018.

Insainment Hereditary

- Just watched a really fucked up movie called Hereditary. It’s the kind of horror flick designed to get under your skin and holy shit does it. I recommend any viewers go in as cold as possible.

Insainment Hereditary

- HEREDITARY chilled me to my bone. It's pure emotional terrorism, gripping you with *real* horror, the unspeakable kind, and then imbuing the supernatural stuff with those feelings. I loved it/resent it for the nightmares I'm going to have. #Sundance2018

Insainment Hereditary

- #Hereditary is so disquieting, you’ll be gasping for air in the theater. Utterly believable supernatural horror. There will be no scarier movie this year. If there is, it means we’re in a new golden age. #Sundance

Insainment Hereditary

- I just saw the scariest movie I have ever ever ever seen in my entire life. I. Am. Shook. #Hereditary #Sundance

Insainment Hereditary

- There are moments of #Hereditary where I felt genuine terror. Not shock. Not “oh that’s a clever twist” Just. Pure. Terror.

Insainment Hereditary

- Move over IT, Get Out, Annabelle: Creation, and The Exorcist. There is a new king of horror coming to

Insainment Hereditary

- After premiering at the Sundance Film Festival, critics have unanimously called Ari Aster’s Hereditary the “scariest horror movie in years”.

Insainment Hereditary

- “This isn’t a scary movie. It’s pure emotional terrorism, gripping you with real horror, the unspeakable kind, and then imbuing the supernatural stuff with those feelings,”
- Hereditary is the most traumatically terrifying horror movie in ages

Insainment Hereditary

- ‘Scariest Horror Film In Years’ Hereditary Is So Terrifying People Are Crying In The Cinema
- People are literally walking out of the cinema because it's just too traumatizing.

Insainment Hereditary

- “Hereditary seeks to confound by swinging between moments of controlled Kubrick-ian terror and unhinged emotional hysteria,”

Insainment Hereditary

- The screams in the theatre were almost as frightening as what was on screen. #Hereditary

Insainment Hereditary

- the most insane horror movie in years, If you’d ever like to sleep again, then you should probably steer clear of A24’s latest horror offering Hereditary

Some Star-Studded Surreal and Scary Short-Films

Maybe I'm alone, but I didn't know that for the last few years NYT Magazine has teamed up with filmmakers and "actors-of-the-year" to make a series of short-short-films based on a subject.

After watching them, last year was the best in my opinion. It was Horror or "Fright Club" and the year they did villains in the "Touch of Evil" series was good too. You can see them all below and each short is only around 1 minute long. I went ahead and gathered them all because if you go looking around on NYTimes Magazine they only let you read a few articles for free and then they want you to pay for a subscription to continue, but if you still want to see the original layout and stuff, those links are below too. I'd check out "Fright Club" first, it's semi-interactive and has a pretty cool design and look to it.

Fright Club and Touch of Evil:


The Villains:
1. Jack Nance as Henry Spencer in David Lynch’s ‘‘Eraserhead’’ (1977). 
2. Images of invisible men, including ‘‘The Invisible Man’’ (1933) and a photo of the Chinese artist Liu Bolin (in front of the taxi van). 
3. The ventriloquist’s dummy Fats from ‘‘Magic’’ (1978). 
4. Louise Fletcher as Nurse Ratched in ‘‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’’ (1975). 
5. Michael Douglas as Gordon Gekko in ‘‘Wall Street’’ (1987). 
6. Charles Laughton as Captain Bligh in ‘‘Mutiny on the Bounty’’ (1935). 
7. Dominique Sanda as Anna Quadri in Bernardo Bertolucci’s ‘‘Conformist’’ (1970). 
8. The silent film star Pina Menichelli. 
9. Catherine Deneuve as Carole in Roman Polanski’s ‘‘Repulsion’’ (1965). 
10. Faye Dunaway as Bonnie Parker in ‘‘Bonnie and Clyde’’ (1967). 
11. Malcolm McDowell as Alex in ‘‘A Clockwork Orange’’ (1971). 
12. A still from ‘‘Green Street Hooligans’’ (2005). 
13. Lana Turner as Cora Smith in ‘‘The Postman Always Rings Twice’’ (1946).


The rest include some 'girl-power' in an all-female series, surreal dreamlike scenes in Take Flight and Wide Awake, some classic Noir with a 360 twist, "Making a Scene", some kissing, and more.. Enjoy..
