    Surprised this doesn’t already have a thread. Toni Collette is getting flat out raves for her performance in this and Alex Wolff has gotten excellent notices as well.

    I’d advise skipping the trailers as I’ve read that it’s best going in blind with this one. All you need to know is it’s been described as disturbing/unsettling and features a knockout Toni Collette performance.
    And it currently sits at 100% on RT with a 9.1 average rating after 29 reviews and 89% on metacritic.

     

    Can’t wait to see this and rooting for Collette to go all the way.

    One of my most anticipated films of the year besides Isle of Dogs and Beautiful Boy. Collette will have a harder time against baity biopic drama #23949 but I’d be behind her all the way. It’s being called this generation’s The Exorcist which is a relief because I love horror films and it’s a shame to have to keep walking away from overhyped movies that only have a few cheap jump scares to their name.

    I also stan for the SUPERIOR Wolff brother but with Timothee in supporting for Beautiful Boy it’ll be a struggle for sure QQ

    Looks like parts of my initial post went missing. Anyway for the curious here the trailer Hereditary | Official Trailer and a promo highlighting Collette performance Hereditary | Toni Collette Terrifies | Official Promo

    For the trailer averse like me, here’s a glimpse into the twisted mind of Director Ari Aster: The Strange Thing About the Johnsons (Be Warned, It’s pretty messed up lol)

    Hereditary opens on June 8 and from what I’ve heard it’s a wide release. So see it on opening weekend and spread the word, A24 and Toni Collette need your support!

    OMG I remember watching this in high school when it first came out and it fucked me up. Didn’t do my research and had no idea he directed this too. Just makes me more excited for Hereditary tbh ;3c

    Saw it. Toni Collette is life. I’ll be stanning for her hard. She doesn’t deserve nomination, she deserves fucking win. It’s time to award performances in straight-up horror movies.

    Oh. My. God. I was so afraid that I would be let down by Hereditary because of all the extreme hype, but it exceeded my every expectation. Toni Collette and Alex Wolff were unbelievable, and the movie still has me a bit shook an hour and a half after the credits have rolled. Some straight up horrific scenes that left me subconsciously digging my fingernails into the seat were so ordinary in their approach but so unbelievably chilling. So excited for more people to see this

    Collette was indeed fantastic and I would fully support a win. Alex Wolff was also very good.

    I haven’t seen the film yet, but the trailer looks fantastic. The Oscar buzz for Collette is massive. I hope she lives up to the hype.

    Toni Collette is brilliant. I’ll be shocked if she’s snubbed. But Alex Wolff has a scene that stunned me so much I almost had to go out to the lobby for a minute. Those who have seen it know the scene I’m speaking of. His emotion feels so real it’s almost unbearable to watch.

    Good stufff

    My two cents…

    Oh, what a pleasure it is to see Toni Collette right where she belongs, on the big screen, in a leading role worthy of her sky-high talents.

    Collette, who should’ve won that Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her devastating turn in The Sixth Sense, has a field day in her latest picture, filmmaker Ari Aster’s dizzying horror flick Hereditary. Right up there with the legendary likes of Mia Farrow in Rosemary’s Baby and Shelley Duvall in The Shining, this is one of the all-time great performances to grace this genre.

    In the film, Collette portrays Annie Graham, wife to Steve (Gabriel Byrne) and mom to teenage son Peter (Alex Wolff) and younger daughter Charlie (Milly Shapiro). Annie is kinda-sorta grieving over the recent loss of her estranged mother Ellen – they weren’t terribly close and, as we soon discover, Ellen put her family through a whole lot of hell, especially Annie’s brother, who ultimately committed suicide.

    When tragedy strikes another member of the Graham clan, Annie finds herself drawn to Joan (Ann Dowd), a member of a support group she has joined. Joan, who lost both her son and grandson, has been communicating with the latter through a seance. Annie, to the great chagrin of her family, decides she’ll do the same at home – and what a poor decision that is, as the house becomes ravaged by malevolent supernatural forces that threaten to bring every Graham down.

    I’m hoping to steer clear of spoilers but let’s just say fans of Rosemary’s Baby, Poltergeist and The Exorcist are bound to have a blast with Hereditary. Aster has no doubt been inspired by the classics, without ever resorting to rip anything off. The film looks incredible, photographed by Pawel Pogorzelski, and Aster’s screenplay, while a sad and scary affair for the most part, hardly lacks a sense of humor. Only the picture’s ending doesn’t quite satisfy, playing as curiously silly vis a vis the genuine horrors that precede it.

    What’s especially stirring here is the acting – Collette has never been better and she’s matched by an ensemble also operating at the tops of their game. Byrne’s understated approach gels nicely with Collette’s hysterics, while Dowd is an irresistible, if unsettling delight. Both Wolff and Shapiro effectively contribute to the film’s spine-chilling atmosphere.

    Hereditary won’t be everyone’s cup of tea and I do fear its conclusion could overshadow the rest of the proceedings for some. That said, I doubt we’ll be encountering another picture this genuinely terrifying over the remainder of 2018.

    The cast had me shook with their performances. Genuinely unsettling atmosphere elicited in this film. Some of the most powerful stuff I’ve seen in awhile.

    My God is Collette sensational in this. If you don’t like horror flicks, at least give this a shot for this minutely layered performance.
