siobhan’s review published on Letterboxd:
Family is something that we cannot change — they are inevitably a part of us, they flow in our bloodstream. Many of our qualities are ones derived from our own family members, which can be either a blessing or a curse. Ari Aster's feature debut focuses on the latter — Hereditary is filled with haunting, nightmarish sequences that position those who often provide comfort and safety in our lives as figures that invoke the exact opposite. By addressing the deepest fears one could fathom about family, we are in turn forced to acknowledge our deepest fears about ourselves.
