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?
