    It's a Wonderful Life

    ★★★★½

    "Please. Let me live again."

    I've been alive for almost 23 years and never had I watched It's a Wonderful Life until this afternoon on the 2nd day of December, 2018.

I am a life-long huge horror fan and Hereditary had me covering my face peeking through my fingers constantly like I was a little kid all over again. My whole body felt like a clenched closed fist for most of the movie. That’s how intense and relentless this is. It has no mercy for…
