Hereditary

Hereditary

Hereditary. A terribly uninteresting drama about a screwed up family. Oh, and in the last 30 minutes or so, it includes a "horror" part:
- the incantation of foreign words
- a 19th century book with a drawing of some sort of creature
- lots of candles
- a few things are moved on the table by spirits
- a picture where someone's eyes are cut out.

I might get it if this were a 2nd year film project. But geez. And the love this film gets on Letterboxd...I don't get it.

Yes, there is no doubt in my mind that I think of horror as something other than 3/4 drama, 1/4 candles and Latin. And it is a damned shame that the genre is so many things that you can't distinguish this type from other types by looking at genre field.

I guess I'm just going to have to find some Letterboxders who like the horror films I like, and trust them with my next picks 'cause boy oh boy, if I have to sit through another one like this I'm going to start watching romantic comedies for Halloween!
