    Hereditary

    ★★★★½

    It’s rare I want to see a film this badly, and now that I’ve seen it I can say it surpassed every expectation.

    Film evolves and horror needed to do so so badly. I can see the roots Hereditary was built upon and they’re strong, successful, haunting films from our past. Strangely, Burnt Offerings comes to mind. It’s not the best film but it took the genre so seriously, like horror meant something. Hereditary feels like that. Like horror can still be respected.

    I couldn’t believe the things I was seeing in this film, isn’t that amazing?

    Oh my god Dan Butler sucks. Unless someone put him up to all that of course, I mean, it’s not his documentary per se, but his constant stops to drink coffee or take a puff off a cigarette while he hangs around freeze frames of half dressed men like he’s one of the cool kids is nearly something out of a dark Tim and Eric sketch.

    The Silver Screen also seems to harbour a hated of women, but that’s beside…

    Better Watch Out

    ★★★★

    I watched this with a large group of people who were also first timers and I can only assume why it took us so long; we thought this was a post Stranger Things, post Krampus, cash-grab kids vs “scary” fun Christmas horror.

    Nope. Think Funny Games and Your Next with commentary on society similar to Get Out. It’s well written, well acted, well filmed, and wholly disturbing and anger inducing.

    This is not a cash grab aimed at kids, it’s a Christmas horror film that works on several levels.

    As of it's release, I think this is what every alien film was supposed to be. What other films brush off in seconds this film builds into an ultimate message. Some films are designed to give us hope, I left the theater in thankful tears.

    I had a lot to say in a review while watching this, but honestly, I think I just want to say that my faith in modern film making is rekindled, and I'm thankful and happy, and really proud of this production. I have love for this film
